The Bottomline...
... is the name of Hemant Morparia's cartoon column which appears in the city supplements of the Times of India, at least in Pune and Mumbai. It, according to me, is usually the only classy item in that daily rag.
Here's a Google query to some Morparia sketches that serve as a good sample of his work. He recently published a book, it seems. Interestingly, Morparia (who writes "Radiologist" in the "Occupation" column) is a Mastermind semi-finalist in the 2nd edition: He quizzed on "The Films of Woody Allen" and "The Life of Swami Vivekananda". Wonder if he knew that Swami Vivekananda reputedly was the first Indian to take a hatrick..
