I was never one of those kids who wouldn’t eat unless there was cartoon playing on the TV. I didn’t enjoy cartoons, but I did watch some like Tom & Jerry and Popeye because my friends couldn’t stop talking about cartoons, so peer pressure and all that. I didn’t want to be the odd one out.
I liked my books and by that I mean my Fairy Tales. I’m embarrassed to tell you the age till which I read them! So I am going to skip that detail. My train journeys introduced me to Tinkle and Archie’s comics. I was in boarding school so every holiday, we travelled a lot..sometimes to some far off relatives places or on a family trip. Tinkles were my company then. I liked it even more because I wasn’t really allowed to read them in school since they supposedly mess with your grammar.
These pair of shorts take me back to that time. They remind me of Shikari Shambu. The hunter who managed to trap animals by fluke and save people. You remember? I had always hoped that someday we would be able to see his face.
Good ol’ days.
