Stunned. Humbled. Great stuff. You should really be proud, Amruta.
looks depressed and gory.
storytellers of past were not

Prash, wonder why you read this as 'depressed and gory'. The image itself is a playful take on the seriousness writers view themselves with, and the originality they imagine themselves to possess.

its not the b & w.
it just does not seem like a pun from any angle.
even the writing below
is all seriousness.
and if that is your message
'making fun of the
serious writer type'
its surely not being communicated
even a simple rk laxman type cartoon would do
better for that purpose
& people liking it are taking it seriously too :)
