Samuel T

T SAMUVAL ( 1925-2012)

Cartoonist Samuel was born in the Kollam district of Kerala. After several escapes from the line of fire during World War II T. Samuel stepped into journalism with his first cartoon published in the “Civil & Military Gazette” of Lahore during the communal upheaval following the partition in 1947.
On reaching Delhi as a refugee from Lahore he joined “ Shankar’s Weekly” contributing the silent strip cartoon “Kalu and Meena “ and few other social cartoons occasionally , but left after 4 years to join the Delhi edition of The Times Of India as their staff cartoonist, and became famous as the creator of the pocket cartoon “ Babuji” which was hailed as the most popular feature in the Indian Press even by the New York Times.
When the editors Frank Moraes and D.R. Mankekar broke away from the Times Of India to join the Indian Express, they dragged Samuel along with them carrying his popular feature “Babuji” in a effort to boost the circulation of the paper. Samuel remained with the Indian Express for the next three years contributing his daily pocket cartoon “Babuji” and the strip cartoon “Garib” in addition to the regular political round up till he was called back to The Times of India and the Nav Bharat Times by popular demand, and remained there till his retirement in 1985.
In addition to his contribution to news papers he was commissioned by the Community Development Ministry of the Govt. Of India for amusing protagonists of the State sponsored development programmes with scintillating satire and was the talk of the day among the development officers running Five Year plans at the behest of the govt.
As a versatile cartoonist he was also commissioned by the Indian Airlines, the Railway Board, the Indian standards Institution and the National Productivity Council for the sake of promoting public awareness of the comic side of our National enterprises in combating the draw backs of the existing system.
He was also engaged by the WHO for illustrating their rural health programmes in South east Asia.
He has already brought out 3 collections of his selected cartoons as “Babuji”, “The Best of Garib” and “Babuji’s Thoughts.”
“Never a Dull Moment is his ultimate effort in rounding up the hilarious anecdotes in his field of activity from time to time and recorded with unflinching fidelity.

The white spaces in Samuval's cartoons are never dull. They too look peopled and dynamic. I strongly feel, Mario must have been influenced by this style.

One more of the Old School- perhaps the last- has left us. Like any of my malayali cartoonists, I couldn't meet him yet. I can only hope for the return of that era where giants walked the cartoon streets.

Are you feeling that it's time to get gaming? Do you have snacks, friends and a new game at the ready? Have you connected to your worthy opponents online? Stop now! Read the following article first so you can learn how to get all you can from your gaming experience.

Turn off chatting capabilities on games for kids that are young. You should not expose your young kids to these types of communications. If the game won't let you disable chat, don't buy it. If you can't figure it out, search online for more information or talk to the people in the store.

It is important to understand the game rating system. Understanding this system allows you to better control what your child is exposed to. Before investing money into any game for a young person, check the ratings for appropriate age groups.

Keep your graphic drivers up to date. When gaming on the computer, it is smart to make sure your picture is sharp and clear. You should update your drivers to ensure this. To find out what graphic drivers your computer has installed, open your device manager, then click update driver.

These days, lots of games are transmitted online. There are a wide variety of downloadable games available for PCs, consoles, and smartphones. It s convenient, but it may cause you to spend more money than normal. Resist the temptation to make impulse gaming purchases, especially of big-ticket new releases. It is important to learn everything you can about a game prior to purchasing it.

When buying for children it is important to check ESRB ratings. Some games may look like they are aimed at children but have objectionable content that is not apparent from the box or other promotional materials. Check the rating and read some reviews to see what others say.

Post ads online in order to sell your older online games. Use auction sites like eBay as the last place to sell. Shipment and payment issues can make sites like those a real hassle. Try ads with Facebook and Craigslist first.

Supervise your child if he or she plays online computer games. While most of these games are rated by the ESRB, some also warn that in-game situations can change, falling into unrated territory. Many games offer chat features and customization options for characters and equippable items. When you take the time to monitor the online game play, you can ensure that your child is interacting in an environment that you are comfortable with.

Some of the most reveled games ever made are classics. Play them! You will also save tons of money this way. Some are available online for quite a deal.

It can be tempting to go all out buying expansion packs, add-ons and upgrades for your new game. This can get very pricey! Instead, be disciplined with your spending. Check out what you've got in the game you bought and only add on what you can afford.

Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

No matter where you are playing the game you will have a great time! Keep learning so you can always be on top of the best suggestions and techniques.
