Madhu Muskaan No.35

Presenting another rare gem from yesteryear's, Madhu Muskaan. This is the first time that a Madhu Muskaan cover has been posted on this blog and this is Issue No.35 from the early 80's.The publishers had a weird way of chronicling the issues wherein only the date & month of publication was mentioned and not the year.The date on this comic is 1 December -15 December, indicating its fortnightly avatar.

To be honest with you guys,I had read just one Madhu Muskaan during my childhood which I stumbled upon in an old bookshop.Since then, I had been scouring and hoping to find more English copies but it was not until recently that I could find some. 

What drove me to post this particular comic cover was the cover itself! Onions,Onions, precious onions! With the prices of onions jetscellerating to stratopheric levels of Rs.80 just a couple of days back in many parts of the country, cant help but wonder whether this cover art was created today or in the early 1980's. Guess it reflects the volatile nature of onion as a commodity and how intensely important onion prices are, to everyday life in India.
