Kamala Laxman, well known author and
wife of legendary cartoonist R K Laxman, passed away due to old age ailments here today, family sources said.
She was 89.
Kamala's demise came about ten months after Laxman breathed his last in January this year.
Kamala used to persuade Laxman, seated in a wheel chair, to draw the 'Common Man' with those magical strokes, whenever his admirers called on him.
