About Tuktuk
Tuktuk. the girl-child. who appears in Shreyas Navare’s cartoons. is a symbol of hope and endless optimism. She also represents the citizens’ right to question the powers-that-be in a democracy. You will find her boldly asking questions to everyone. from the local police constable wielding his stick on a street corner to the country’s Prime Minister (wielding a broom!)

Giving Tuktuk company in the cartoons are two other characters: Zero the donkey (representing our conscience) and Infinity the robot (a metaphor for the boundless possibilities that humanity is capable of achieving through imagination and innovation).

Together. this trio sheds a unique. satirical perspective on the issues of the day. in our seemingly unending journey towards a better tomorrow!
