(top-left) 42 | TIMEPASS (top-right) mid-day Sunday, July 9, 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 and BG are seen sitting on a pink sofa facing the TV in front of them. Short straight lines around the TV screen represent sound.) Pintu: I love cricket!
BG: There's more statistics to cricket than there is to… a woman! Frame 2: (A close-up of Pintu and BG, sitting on the sofa, with Pintu's face turned slightly to the left to look at BG, while his eyes still appear to be fixed in front of him, towards the TV.) Pintu: I did not understand that… Uncle BG! BG:
You'll grow up soon enough, Pintu! Frame 3: (Pintu and BG are seen sitting on the sofa facing the TV in front of them. Pintu's eyes are almost popping out with his eyebrows raised high. Short straight lines around the TV screen represent sound.) Pintu: I want India to win every match in the Champions Trophy! BG: Invariably the best team of the day wins! Frame 4: (A close-up of Pintu and BG, sitting on the sofa, with Pintu now turned towards to the left looking at BG intensely, almost angrily.) Pintu: India has the best team! BG: But cricket is not really a team game! All depends on the individual bowler and batsman! Frame 5: (A close-up of BG sitting on the sofa) BG: And the individual umpires! Frame 6: (A close-up of BG sitting on the sofa) BG: And the third umpire! Frame 7: (A close-up of Pintu and BG, sitting on the sofa, with a straight-faced Pintu looking straight ahead and his eyes pointing upwards) BG: And the… selection committee! Frame 8: (A close-up of Pintu and BG, sitting on the sofa, with Pintu looking disoriented, and BG now slightly turned away from Pintu, towards the left. BG's index finger of his left hand is now placed on his chin, making it appear as though he is contemplating his next words.) BG: And… of course… the bookie! (Signed Ponnappa, in Frame 7)
