We've all spent hours poring over comics, movies, cartoons and merchandise of assorted superheroes all through our childhood. But how many of them were Indian? Artist Rajkamal Aich decided to change the situation. Over the last year, he has brought to us many, many superheroes from an Indian context. What started as a fun project of Indianising existing characters, soon took shape into a completely original series of artwork. Here are just a few of the characters we're totally in love with.
Real Name: K. Rangaswamy
Superpower: Can throw idliis with great precision in his enemy's mouth, giving them instant diarrhea.
Real Name: Laltu Sen
Superpower: Can throw laddoos at great speed and with deadly accuracy.
