Indian comics come of age
Scores of new cartoonists are drawing sketches that bring out the funny vein of Indian life. With their disarming honesty, these new-age comic characters are clambering with restlessness, elbowing out the old-school comics, writes Vandana Shukla

The swadeshis are offered condoms made of khadi. And Birbal is told, your punch lines are weaker than Sher Shah Suriís third wife after the delivery of her 15th child! Well, this may send Chacha Chaudhury scurrying for cover. Behind his twirling moustache and furrowed brow, a lot is happening to make him sulk. The new-age comic characters with their disarming honesty are clambering with restlessness, elbowing out the old-school comics.

Shirt is your status symbol
A formal shirt cannot casually be bought off the counter. After all, it is a symbol of your upward movement in society, writes Hector Choksi
The number of dress shirts you have are an index of your upward movement in society. The term dress shirt is reserved for a particular type of formal shirts. There are formal day shirts for wearing with morning dress. White dress shirts are used as eveningwear. I recently spoke to a gentleman who wanted to dress smartly but didnít want to worry about his clothing. "I donít want to go into a meeting and be worrying about my sleeve length or anything like that. I want to look good and concentrate on the matter at hand," he said. His solution is, of course, the dress shirt.
