Today is the birthday of Anant Pai (popularly known as Uncle Pai), the main brain behind such classics like the Amar Chitra Katha and Tinkle. Google decided to commemorate it with a special Google Doodle.
Tinkle was the staple diet of comics for kids all ages growing up. I remember the time when I used to wait with bated breath for the next issue of Tinkle so that I could read the next adventures of Suppandi, Kalia the Crow, Tantri the Mantri, Shikari Shambu, Nasruddin Hodja, Kapish and others.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Uncle Pai.Thanks for the memories.
