A tragi-comic censorship campaign
Cartoonist Sarnath Banerjee illustrates how a website about a sexy Indian sister-in-law got the censors hot under the collar.
Ahead of the Battle of Ideas’ satellite event, Drawing the line: political cartooning in an inoffensive age, read Sarnath Banerjee’s comic about shadowy censorship commissions and an Indian soft porn cartoon website featuring a sexy sister-in-law.

Both books are published by Penguin (India).
