The Common Man

People in power exploit the common man who is stuck in his daily rituals for survival. Personal agenda’s to justify  extreme religious beliefs, excess wealth, political power are all materialised by controlling inequality and building policies and corporate structures that seldom account for the common man’s welfare.

Left wing right wing politics, blame game narratives, finger pointing and what-aboutery conversations on news channels, election rallies amidst health risks, riots based on stern ideologies…the list goes on. How does any of this matter to the average person who is only trying to earn a living and care for their families?

The common man fending for daily survival is like the idealist whose dreams and desires are destined to be dashed at all times. 

The series is inspired by cartoons made by Mr. R.K.Laxman for this daily cartoon strip, “You said it” in the Times of India.
