Pachydermal Punch

The political satire cartoon in pic1 was illustrated by guy in pic2, who’s better  known for drawing the characters of a very popular book-series for kids, written by the uber-famous guy in pic3.

The inspiration for two of the lead characters in the afore-mentioned book-series, was the son of the guy in pic3 and the furry creature in pic4 .

The task is simple. Id the references to the two elephants in pic1 [ both were Indian political Parties back then, one still is ] , and the people shown in pic2, and pic3 .

Owing to the sheer size of this connect,this should be classified as a monthly, I guess 🙂

@Anees [ To which of my subquestions was that an answer 😛 ]


Illustrator EH Shepard (pic 2) (of Winnie the Pooh fame) depicts the mainly Hindu Congress organisation and the Muslim League as two elephants (pic 1) ignoring each other in a 1946 cartoon for Punch.

Winnie the Pooh was written by A.A.Milne (pic 3). [ his son being the inspiration for Christopher Robin’s character].
