In Mumbai, there’s a politician named Bal Thackeray who absolutely hates Valentines Day. If any stores stock Valentines Day, he send thugs to burn them down. If anyone has a party on February 14th, his followers will rush in and rough everyone up. One year that happened, and the party turned out to be a wake.

I had a weird fascination with Bal though, because he’s a retired cartoonist. So the year I lived in India, this is the Valentine’s Day card I made for all my coworkers.
