Abstract

R. K. Laxman, Rasipuram Krishna swamy Laxman, was born on 24 October 1921 in Mysore and died on 26 January 2015 in Pune, India. He is called the king of cartoons since he gave India’s Common Man a voice. No one skipped from his cheerful criticism not even his signature character ‘Common Man’. The researcher calls him prophet as many predictions (what he criticized) he depicted in his cartoons are envisaged in 2020, though he died in 2015. As a school going boy Laxman did not like the school and study. He mentioned this in his autography The Tunnel of Time that how arid and dreary were school days as some unpleasant events were related with his school time and school teachers. So, he strongly anticipates the changes in the Education Policy through his cartoons. He raised the questions either wittily or humorously about school, teachers and students. It ironically manifests lacunas in Education System of India.
