Read the 3rd issue of the QSM Magazine Online – Humor, Satire, and Parodies.

Start 2016 with a Truck-load of Quirky Snarky Malarkey! Read the new issue of the QSM Magazine Online.

The Subscribers have already received their pdf copies in their mailboxes. If you are a subscriber and haven’t received yours yet, please check your spam folder, then shoot me an email. I’ll forward it to Anandhotep. (I’d love an opportunity to show him down.)

the QSM Issue magazine - humor, funny, jokes, anecdotes, caricatures, cartoons from India and Indian culture.
In this issue of the QSM Magazine read about:

  • the top 10 malarkey-makers of 2015,
  • my Mom’s total paisa vasool (getting your money’s worth) philosophy,
  • the deal between Trump and Hillary,
  • the new down-to-earth James Bond,
  • an Indian girl’s quest for her missing groom,
  • the missed second innings,
  • Bobby Jindal’s real reason for quitting the race,
  • a dog’s new year resolutions,

and a lot more.

Three cool new authors have contributed to this issue of the QSM Magazine, and a new artist too. I want to thank them and all the QSM Readers for making 2015 a special year for me.

Enter the colorful illustrated world of QSM and forget your worries. With this post, I too shall be sending Anandhotep on his way. Wifey stops entering my work-room when he is around. According to her, “his bandages stink and he never shaves.” I’ve tried explaining the mummification process to her and pointed it out that mummies are desiccated, eviscerated bodies that have nothing in them that can make those bandages stink – and nothing could make a mummy grow a stubble. But she says that she’d rather trust her nose and her eyes. So much for trust being the basis of a sturdy marriage.

Signing off…

Enjoy the magazine 😀

    Its getting better and better! Superb caricatures and cartoons floating around, Ananditothep at his funky best. I disagree on planning maladies since you are bang-on-time, a bit early on QSM issues. Bun! Loved his spoof on James Bond (My jealous mini ‘me’ would hate to see anybody straddling among bikini babes. Be it Bun or anybody).

    Malarkey makers! Nice to see ‘sadda’ Anand vying with likes of Salman and Aamir, gearing up for second inning. I miss Lalu in the list (understand its difficult to draw caricature of a caricature).

    Btw! How about Piyusha marrying Chandraketu (unless she’s waiting for Donald Trump or Maharaja Putin).

    Thx a ton for ‘I made it to QSM!’ moment (and the hottie caricature in my piece).

    Jai ho!

      Thank you for your thorough analysis, Dr. Jha. We will await Bun’s reaction to his visual persona and see if he feels the same.

      Please note that twadda Anand isn’t the one competing with the Khans – they are ones who can’t hold a candle to me.

      I’d say Chandraketu too is a life, wife, and rice kinda guy, who isn’t at all interested in playing the second innings. And oh, he’s got two minuses too. I am willing to bet that Piyusha’s intergalactic quest would yield better results.

      Glad you liked my visual rendition of your advances-rejecting-divas :D, and you are welcome!

    Hi, Anand! For some reason, I can no longer sign into ISSUU, so can you send via email, please? I filled out the subscription page. Thanks. Greetings to all.

    Anand, I believe my e-mail postmaster has been snooping. He considers the QSM magazine to be more quirky and smarky than he likes. I think he would try to do malarky alone, but I told him not to bother. He just refuses to send to someone as old as I. He thinks my equipment is too stale and behind the times. He says he will try again if I can prove to him that I am able to handle 40 pages of quirky, smarky, along with the malarky. Meanwhile, I will have to just continue reading online. I thank you for your efforts in my behalf. He did try to cooperate last issue, but it really did bog down my system. Don’t be offended, I’m sure it was just the quantity, not the quality – no matter what Mr. Postmaster says. I’ve told him I just cannot afford to buy equipment that would handle all those watts, or is it volts, or maybe bytes, or gigs, or pixels, or mega…….

      Oh Oneta, if only you had a gmail account. Life would’ve have been a lot simpler 😀 I’m thinking of getting a website for the magazine…when I have one, I’ll send password-protected download links to the subscribers. Actually if you made a free user-account with, you’d be able to not just download the QSM magazine but also follow it, and then they’ll send you an email whenever a new issue is published. And at ISSUU, they believe that everyone has equal rights on everything that’s quirky, snarky, malarkey!

      Thank you for enriching this post with your quirky, edgy malarkey…Never before I had so much fun reading a complaint-letter 😀

    Hi Anand,
    I just wanted to say the magazine is great and I loved the picture of me on page 11. I laughed out loud when I saw it. You really did make a wonderful job of it. All I would say is that the cartoon version of me is a little more suave and sophisticated than the real one, but I can definitely live with that. Thanks again for the inclusion. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing 🙂 Awesome
    Wishing you a very Happy New Year 2016.

      Thanks for visiting, Rupam. Wish you a very happy new year too. Assam is a beautiful state. Wifey spent her childhood years in the north-east and she gets misty-eyed whenever a mention of any of the seven-sisters pops-up.
