The selected cartoons appeared first in other publications, either in print or online, or on social media, and are credited appropriately.
In today’s featured cartoon, Sajith Kumar refers to Star Sports’ old ‘Mauka Mauka’ advertisements broadcast ahead of India-Pakistan matches to mock the social media trolls who have not missed a chance to spread hate since Virat Kohli’s team lost to the arch-rivals in their ICC Men’s Twenty20 World Cup match in Dubai Sunday.
Sandeep Adhwaryu | The Times of India
Sandeep Adhwaryu uses a bunch of puns to highlight the state of the common Indian in the face of the ever-increasing fuel prices, and how the rich, some of whom were mentioned in the Pandora Papers leak aren’t affected.
R. Prasad | Economic Times
R. Prasad alludes to Bajrang Dal activists vandalising the sets of the webseries Aashram in Bhopal, and smearing ink on its producer-director Prakash Jha’s face. The cartoonist wonders what Jha now feels about Karan Johar’s comment on ‘intolerance‘ in India, which Jha at one time had dismissed being ‘only in Karan Johar’s mind’.
E.P. Unny | The Indian Express
E.P. Unny comments on the Supreme Court’s decision that it will hear the Delhi government’s plea on the issue of who should control administrative services and bureaucrats in the city after Diwali.

Kirtish Bhatt | BBC News Hindi
Kirtish Bhatt takes a dig at Hindutva groups and BJP leaders who are taking offence to advertisements. After Fabindia’s withdrawal of its “​Jashn-e-Riwaaz​” ad, Dabur consumer goods is the latest to withdraw an inclusive campaign on Karva Chauth showing a lesbian couple celebrating the festival. The man in the cartoon is telling his leader to take offence to a detergent ad, since it doesn’t specify which religion’s clothes are being washed.
