Shor Bazaar's Savita Bhabhi quoted in Hindustan Times

It’s been about 6 months ago that we let loose “Savita Bhabhi” on the Internet. We are still astonished by the amount of interest it has generated, and should we say, is still generating.

Our take on the immensely popular Savita Bhabhi comic trip was commented on by Palash Krishna Mehrotra in yesterday’s (Jan 23rd, 2010) Hindustan Times. Here’s the excerpt about us from the article that describes the emergence of Indian artists who dare take on the more edgy subjects in our society.

While the mainstream remains where it was sixty-three years ago, there is, however, for the first time, a new rumbling in the Indian underground. Young bands are putting out songs on the Internet that take on everything from our squeamishness about sex to joint families and religious tradition. Shor Bazaar's 'Savita Bhabhi' goes, ‘Yehan ka tu native/ Society conservative! Aise in halaat mein/...Best to go online/Leke apne haath mein.’

We thank Palash for his generous comments!
