(top-left) 43 | TIMEPASS (top-right) mid-day Sunday, September 3, 2017 | YOU & EYE – A WEEKLY HUMOUR SERIES THAT DEMYSTIFIES BLINDNESS, CURATED BY XRCVC.ORG Image description: A cartoon strip with 8 frames… Frame 1:
(Pintu rests his hands on the window sill while looking downwards out the window almost fearfully. A number of lines coming from below seem to burst into small grey clouds of smoke representing air pollution, and big red stars representing loud sounds / noise pollution.) A line supposedly from outside the frame appears to be BG's voice: What's that noise, Pintu? What's happening on our as-it-is noisy street?! Frame 2: (A close-up of Pintu with his hands on the window sill as he looks down in nervousness. A line from below seems to burst into a big red star representing a loud sound / noise pollution.) Pintu: Lots of big beefy guys are holding a morcha, Uncle BG! Frame 3: (A close-up of Pintu appearing apprehensive as he looks down with his hands still on the window sill. A line from below seems to burst into a big red star representing a loud sound / noise pollution.) Pintu: They're holding placards that say… 'Beta Bacho'! Frame 4: (BG is seen standing at the window, while Pintu is on his left seeming quite tensed as he looks down with his left hand on the window sill.)
BG: 'Beta Bachao'! Are you sure it's not… 'Beti Bachao'? Pintu: It's 'Beta'! I'm sure! Frame 5: (BG is standing at the window, with Pintu on his left looking down and both his hands on the window sill.) BG: Aah! I guess more and more beefy politicians' sons are getting caught chasing girls…! Pintu: Oh Oh… Frame 6:
(A close-up showing only Pintu who appears entertained with a slight smile on his face) Pintu: Now they're all running scared… like chicken! Frame 7: (A close-up of BG standing with Pintu on his left looking downwards, with his face only partially seen.) BG: Have the cops… er… entered the scene? But they’re never scared of cops…! So who could be chasing them? Frame 8: (A close-up showing only Pintu's amused face with his eyebrows raised high and a wide smile) Pintu: It's the media!! (Signed Ponnappa, in Frame 8)
