The legendary cartoonist Mr. R.K.Laxman used to Doodle constantly whenever he came to Mysore, his birth place on holidays. In December 1975 Mr. R.K.Srinivasan, Laxman’s elder brother, who was in Delhi brought a big scrap book and made Laxman create more Doodles.

The process of Doodling started with the chat and conversation of the day on 15-12-1975. Totally 97 meaningful Doodles were created for 16 years till 5-10-1991. Hundreds of people have seen these Doodles at their home. Some have called them meaningless and nonsense. Some really felt that they have deep philosophical and artistic significance. The original Doodles are now with Mr. R.S.Krisnaswamy, Bangalore, son of Mr. R.K.Srinivasan. All the 97 Doodles are displayed here.
