Last Laughs: ‘Jugaad’ quotient, BJP’s premature celebrations, and criminal politicians

Text Size:

The best Indian 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.

The lead cartoon by Ajit Ninan and Sunil Agarwal for iToons shows how India runs on jugaad or make-do solutions. A man suggests that Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and Emotional Quotient (EQ) do not matter as much as jugaad quotient in the country.

Sandeep Adhwaryu in the Times of India pokes fun at the BJP’s premature celebration with the Rajya Sabha election results. Bihar CM Nitish Kumar reminds Amit Shah that the conscience, needs and demands of the common voter are very different from the politicians who vote in Rajya Sabha.

Nala Ponnappa makes fun of the inability to tell the difference between political posters and criminal posters given how many lawmakers have criminal cases against them.

Kirtish Bhatt in BBC Hindi illustrates the impact of Anna Hazare’s second indefinite hunger strike in the capital. Some politicians seem to have forgotten how it had shaken the Manmohan Singh-led UPA government in 2011.

Suhail Naqshbandi, a cartoonist and art director from Kashmir, shows how Kashmiris are facing an ‘identity crisis’ in the light of continuous shelling and army presence. His cartoon was selected by Cartoon Rights Network International.
