Sudhir Tailang, a Padma Shri awardee (he got it in 2004,) is what I would call a visual thinker. Tailang currently works with Asian Age, but similar to Mario Miranda, he started his career with The Illustrated Weekly of India.

Tailang worked mainly with The Hindustan Times (I am a Time of India reader but for a short time, way back in the 90s and early 2000s, I had subscribed to the HT for a limited time. I remember seeing his cartoons then. When you look at cartoons and you yourself like to draw, you tend to look at the name of the artist when you like a drawing. So I remember looking at his name and thinking that he was cool.

While his line-work is different from Mario‘s, or Ninan‘s, or even Laxman‘s; Tailang’s humor cuts through it all and reaches you; and for a cartoonist, the message is always more important than the visual.
