His first cartoon was first published when he was 10: Adieu Sudhir Tailang


Eminent cartoonist Sudhir Tailang, who chronicled contemporary Indian politics with wit and humour, died here today after battling brain cancer for over two years.

Tailang was under treatment for brain cancer since 2014 and breathed his last at his East Delhi residence in Mayur Vihar. He would have turned 56 on February 26 and is survived by his daughter and wife.

The cartoonist, who had worked in a number of newspapers including Hindustan Times, The Indian Express and Times of India, was admitted to Medanta Medicity hospital in Gurgaon in December but was brought home around a month ago.

Tailang was awarded Padma Shri in 2004. As a cartoonist, many politicians including Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Atal Behari Vajpayee, P V Narasimha Rao, Manmohan Singh and Narendra Modi bore the brunt of his brush.

He was fighting brain cancer since 2014.

“However, after last Diwali, he started keeping unwell and was admitted to Medanta hospital. We brought him home in mid January when the doctors said there is nothing more they could do. He passed away at 1 PM today,” said Aditi, Tailang’s daughter.
Tailang, who was born in Rajasthan’s Bikaner on Febnruary 26, 1960 had his first cartoon published in a newspaper at the age of 10 in 1970. It was in 1982, when he got his first major break in Illustrated Weekly of India, Mumbai.

As a child, Tailang was fascinated by comics such as Tintin, Phantom and Blondie which is known to have encouraged him to draw cartoons. He had his first cartoon published in a newspaper at the age of 10 in 1970.

In 1983, he joined the Navbharat Times in Delhi. For several years he was with the Hindustan Times and also worked for the Indian Express and The Times of India. Later, he worked for the Asian Age.

In 2009, he had come out with a book of cartoons titled “No, Prime Minister”, which carried cartoons on Manmohan Singh drawn during first stint of his prime ministership.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi condoled the passing away of noted political cartoonist.

“Saddened at his untimely death, Gandhi said that his depiction of contemporary events through cartoons and fearless commitment to the right to artistic expression will be forever remembered,” the AICC tweeted.

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah also expressed grief over the passing away of Tailang. “Very sorry to hear about cartoonist Sudhir Tailang. Was a big fan of his tongue in cheek humour. May he rest in peace,” Omar tweeted.
