As the row over Time magazine’s “Underachiever” cover line on prime minister Manmohan Singh engulfs primetime news, Mail Today cartoonist R. Prasad cuts through the post-colonial clutter.
New York Times‘ India website IndiaInk has a gallery of past magazine covers on India, while Rediff compiles a slideshow of previous Time covers on Indians.
Meanwhile, Prasad links the brouhaha over Time‘s cover with the kerfuffle over Union minister Salman Khurshid‘s comments in the Indian Express on the Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in a fresh cartoon.

Prasad’s cartoon on Rahul Gandhi is brilliant stuff.
It does make you smile – good context and timing! 🙂
Super cartoon… Thanks for sharing
P.S: The US edition of TIME seems to dumb down the news for the Americans. Check out the TIME cover of USA vs the rest – http://www.dailydawdle.com/2011/11/time-magazine-covers-us-vs-rest-of.html
