Being a cartoonist, I thought there wouldn't be a better way to raise my voice than throught my own cartoons. So, here through a few doodles of mine, I'd like to say out loud what I think shouldn't be happening in the world.

2. Eve-teasing is a disgrace to the society yet it is one of the commonest crimes in India. Although the laws are getting stricter but unless there is a better environment for the upbringing and better ways to inculcate good values in kids, we are going to have a hard time keeping this menace at bay.
