This work explores the history, politics and aesthetics of satire and its emergence as a distinct literary-artistic mode of social expression in north India. It examines modern Hindi literary and visual satire (cartoons) and their complex relationship with the questions of modernity and colonialism in the newly configured vernacular public sphere of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century colonial North India from a transcultural perspective.
