For half a century, the Times of India has thoughtfully provided an antidote to all the bad news brimming on its front pages. It s a sketch, a single box, inked by R.K. Laxman, the country s sharpest cartoonist and political satirist. Each morning, Laxman s frazzled character, known as the Common Man, confronts India s latest heartbreak with a kind of wry resignation. . . . What s common about this character is that like most Indians, he sees his country being forced through endless indignities by its leaders and yet doesn t even whimper in protest.
