Description
A PENGUIN BOOKS
THE MAD, MAD WORLD OF CRICKET

Sudhir Dar was born in 1932 at Allahabad. He took a master’s degree in geography and worked as a broad- caster with All India Radio and later with Air-India doing sales promotion. He came to cartooning in 1960, creating a witty, wordless cartoon series for the Statesman (Delhi and Calcutta). In 1967 he joined the Hindustan Times where he spent over two decades A drawing political cartoons and a daily pocket cartoon called ‘This Is It!’. He worked with the Pioneer in Delhi for the next seven years, before moving to the Delhi Times, a daily supplement of the Times of India. Dar’s cartoons have also appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post and Saturday Review. Mad magazine once called him a ‘Tasty Indian Nut’.

The recipient of numerous national and international awards, Dar’s poster calendar for Air-India won awards at the 1980 International CLIO awards in the USA. He also represented India at the first International Cartoonists’ Conference in London in 1970. Many of his originals are now part of private collections including those of Queen Elizabeth II, Lord Richard Attenborough, Henry Kissinger and the late Yehudi Menuhin. Sudhir Dar is married and has two daughters. He lives in Delhi.

Publisher’s Note

For several decades now, Sudhir Dar has regaled readers with his inimitable creations. This volume contains some of his best cricket cartoons, including some new and topical additions. Published in time for the 2007 cricket World Cup, this collection will delight every fan who loves the magic and madness of cricket.

Back of the Book

In India cricket is more than a game; it is a national obsession. And with a World Cup always around the corner, there is no better way to prepare for the excitement of seeing the men in blue in action than with renowned cartoonist Sudhir Dar’s creations. Dar shows in his inimitable style how cricket can change flight schedules, disrupt board meetings, encourage spirituality, promote the sale of effigies, and cause general disharmony in the household. He explains what actually goes on a ‘huddle’; what telescopic lenses on the boundary line are really used for; why ‘duck’ is not a preferred item on the menu during the World Cup; why barbers across the nation are cursing Dhoni; and how a group of countries collectively known as the West Indies is likely to destabilize India. He also reveals the cheerleading mantra that might work when India plays Australia: ‘May the better side lose.’

For several decades, Sudhir Dar has tickled our funny bone with his wit. The Mad, Mad World of Cricket contains his best and funniest work on cricket

  • Could you possibly get me Sudhir Dar\'s telephone number and current address? We entertained him in Dallas, TX and he showed us around New Delhi, but we lost touch after exchanging Christmas greetings for a number of years. My daughter is currently in Delhi and would like to meet him again.
    Thank you,

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
