|Comforting, a Gopalakrishnan painting|
But just do a search of VS Gopalakrishnan in YouTube. You will spot hundreds of Rafi, Mukesh and Talat songs sung by him. And you will be surprised to know he is a regular blogger too. That’s not all. The babu of yesteryears continues his passion for paintings and creates masterpieces like Tabla Player, Marathi Woman, Mohenjodaro Man and Marilyn Monroe. Armed with an American diploma in cartooning 50 years ago, Gopalakrishnan is also a distinguished cartoonist and has so far published five cartoon books.
babu blogger’s request: No one knows how babu blogger looks like. Nor has anyone guessed his age or sex. Dear VS Gopalakrishnan, would you kindly do a cartoon of anonymous babu blogger who has penned over 1,000 action-packed stories of hits and misses in India's corridors of power.
