Pune, Jan 18:
Eminent cartoonist R.K. Laxman, who created “The Common Man”, has suffered multiple organ failure and his condition was “critical” late Sunday, family sources said.
“Saturday, he was in ICU and this (Sunday) morning miraculously bounced back. Again his condition is a cause for concern,” a family member, who did not want to be identified, told IANS.
A Magsaysay laureate, Laxman’s cartoons have regaled generations since 1950s till a few years ago when he stopped drawing due to ill health. IANS
