Cartoonist RK Laxman critical, but stable in Pune hospital

Eminent cartoonist RK Laxman, who was admitted to a hospital here late last night in critical condition, is said to be stable, said reports on Monday.

Ninety-four-year-old Laxman was admitted to the intensive care unit of the Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital for treatment of a urinary infection.

He underwent dialysis yesterday and was recovering. Family sources said that Laxman had been shifted to the ICU as a precautionary measure.

He is said to be on ventilator support after experiencing multi-organ failure.

Through his iconic character of “The Common Man”, Laxman has held a mirror to the society by creating satire targeting politicians for more than five decades.
