Keshav Shankar Pillai was born on July 31, 1902, in Kayamkulam, Kerala. His career in cartooning began in the 1930s, and he quickly gained prominence for his sharp wit and insightful commentary on political and social issues. Shankar’s cartoons were not just humorous; they were powerful critiques of the times, often highlighting the ironies and contradictions within the political landscape of India. His work appeared in various newspapers and magazines, but it was in 1948 that Shankar founded “Shankar’s Weekly,” a publication that became a platform for budding cartoonists and a voice for social and political commentary. The magazine ran successfully for nearly three decades, becoming a staple in Indian households. In commemorating Keshav Shankar Pillai with this First Day Cover, we celebrate not only the man and his achievements but also the enduring spirit of creativity and learning that he championed throughout his life.  If you wish to Buy this FDCIndian Stamps and Miniature Sheet ?
