Text Size:

The best cartoons of the day, chosen by editors at ThePrint.

The selected cartoons appeared first in other publications, either in print or online or on social media, and are credited appropriately.

In the lead cartoon, E.P. Unny in the Indian Express has a witty take on the draconian AFSPA law. While Narendra Modi visits Xi Jinping, the AFSPA law is a heavy weight that India continues to carry despite being a democracy.

Jayanto in the Hindustan Times illustrates the horrible accident that took place Thursday in Uttar Pradesh where a school van collided with a train and killed 13 children at an unmanned crossing. Jayanto shows it is Death who controls the signals at unmanned train crossings in the nation.

In a hilarious cartoon, Mansoor Naqvi in Dainik Bhaskar takes a jibe at Kamal Nath heading the Congress in Madhya Pradesh, because his name means lotus, which is also the BJP’s symbol.

Cartoonist Nala Ponnappa shows the reality most voters face in India, no matter who you vote for, they almost always turn out to be disappointing after coming to power.

Subhani in the Asian Age shows that politicians in India blame almost everyone when it comes to hate speeches, except themselves.
