26th Jan 1950 common man got the right to be heard& 26th Jan 2015, the 'common man' lost 'his voice'. Life is the greatest irony! #rklaxman

A silent but a very strong voice is no more..with the demise of #rklaxman we hve lost someone who cud understand d problems of a common man.

Rest in peace great man. You showed us so much in a way nobody else could. Goodbye R.K.Laxman...a most uncommon man!

This goes to show how much the film fraternity right from Bollywood to south cinema loved this great man! RIP RK Laxman…
