Here comes TOKAII……

[image: all photographs are from the book TOKAII by RANABI]

TOKAII, our favorite Bangladeshi cartoon personality, turned 25 in 2003-4. To celebrate his silver jubilee, a book was published with some memorable drawings of TOKAII by its creator, the great artist/cartoonist RANABI aka RAFIQUN NABI.

Tokaii was born on the pages of Bichitra on May 17, 1978. He is a street urchin forever clad in a lungi and talking in the Dhakaite dialect. His acute observations of society and witty comments are what made him an overnight celebrity.

Here are some drawings from the book and I hope to celebrate the golden jubilee of TOKAII in 2028-9!
