Alok is a political cartoonist. Very early as a child, he was influenced by R.K.Laxman's front page political cartoons and since then he hasn't looked back. "It was then, that I became a rather ‘dexterous copyist'," Alok says. Nevertheless, after meeting the legend cartoonist himself and getting his advice to do original work, he produced his own cartoons. At 15, after completing high school education, he participated in Rotary club's Youth Exchange program to visit Canada for a year. His father being the most ardent supporter of his art, made a small pocket size book of his cartoons named 'Mad Box'.
