Well, the end of 2017 at least. And what a year it’s been! ISRO launched 104 satellites, silver medal victory for P. V. Sindhu at the World Badminton Championships, ‘Newton’ was declared as India’s official entry to the Oscars and Trump got elected as President (yay).

We had our share of ups and downs, all perfectly captured by our favourite pun-ny newspaper cartoon, Amul.

Starting all the way back in 1976, Amul cartoons are our shot-sized dose of the news highlights, with a buttery twist.

There are only so many dairy-puns that one can come up with, yet somehow Amul manages to pull them off.

Every. Single. Time.

The creative geniuses behind the cartoons are just 3 people – Rahul daCunha, the creative head of daCunha Communications, copywriter Manish Jhaveri, and Jayant Rane, the artist who has been sketching Amul cartoons for a quarter-century now.
