30 Hilarious Comics That Accurately Depict What Its Like Growing Up In An Indian Family

This "slice-of-life comedy" comic shows us exactly how its like to grow up in India.

What instantly pops up in your mind when you hear ‘India’? If you’re like most people, you’d probably answer Bollywood, Taj Majal, or the grand weddings the country is famous for.

Well very soon, that list may probably include Brown Paperbag – a fairly new webcomic series created by a Mumbai-based Digital Media Arts student named Sailesh Gopalan. The strips are focused around what it’s like to grow up in India and it already has a huge following since the artist began working on it back in June 2016.

The mind and the hand behind Brown Paperbag webcomics: Sailesh Gopalan, a 21-year-old student from India.

Sailesh, 21, studies at the Srishti School of Art Design and Technology in Bangalore. He describes the comic as “a slice-of-life comedy webcomic aimed at highlighting the ironies and exploiting the stereotypes that prevail in Indian families and society in a satirical fashion.”

In a BoredPanda feature, Sailesh shared how we grew up with fascination for comics. He said:

“I’ve always been interested in drawing comics. I used to fill up my drawing books with my own comics as a kid, and that interest never died out. My biggest inspiration is the manga artist Eiichiro Oda, author of One Piece. When it comes to webcomics, it’s Shen, author of Bluechair and Owlturd Comix, as well as Sarah Andersen of Sarah’s Scribbles.”

When asked for what advice would he give for those thinking of starting a comic, the artist just straightforwardly said:

“Upload! Don’t let your inhibitions keep you from sharing your work with the world. I had no idea my comics would receive the response it did, and the only way I could know is if I put it up on the internet.”
