Created almost six decades ago, RK Laxman’s character the ‘Common Man’ is still unforgettable. The anonymous, silent yet witty spectator was the best observer of the Indian society and politics.

A statement was released by the RK IPR Management, founded by Laxman, which noted that the character 'Common Woman' will focus on focus on showing the perspective of a woman in society and the cartoon strip will tackle gender issues.The series will be titled, “Common Man and Common Woman”.

On the mark of World Cartoonist Day (May 5), RK IPR announced that famous character ‘Common Man’ is set to get an extension with an addition of ‘Common Woman’ which will be created by his granddaughter Rimanika Laxman.

Same as the Rimanika, the character is also Common Man’s granddaughter, who has grown up watching her grandfather, who was empathetic, observant and vulnerable. She now steps in to voice her opinion and resolve issues and also seek solutions for the betterment of the people

The character will be introduced in hoardings in Mumbai. Also, the estate is currently in talks with several major newspapers to publish it as a regular cartoon series from next month onwards. While the cartoon will be conceived by Rimanika, it will be illustrated by Laxman's long-time associate cartoonist Vikas Phadnis.

Well, we cannot wait for the new series! We are sure that it will be as witty and relatable as the Common Man.
