(top-left) 40 | TIMEPASS (top-right) mid-day Sunday, January 22, 2017 YOU & EYE – A WEEKLY HUMOUR SERIES THAT DEMYSTIFIES BLINDNESS, CURATED BY XRCVC.ORG Image description: A cartoon strip with 10 frames… Frame 1: (BG is next to a pole with alternate black and white horizontal lines across. Atop the pole, is a circular white signage with a thick red border and the side-view of a bus drawn in black.) Text: One day… at the bus-stop… Frame 2: (A close-up of a disappointed-looking BG, with a thought bubble above which shows him thinking) One of my big problems is… identifying bus numbers! Frame 3: (3 persons of varying heights seem to be rushing towards what appears to be the back of a red bus. A thought bubble shows BG thinking.) Not all co-passengers are helpful! Everyone's in a tearing hurry…! Frame 4: (BG is wearing earphones and holding a mobile in his left hand. A thought bubble shows him thinking.) I wish there was an app to help on my smartphone… but there isn't one yet… Frame 5:
(A driver wearing a khaki uniform, including a cap, is seated on a green seat with his hands on the steering wheel of a red bus which is facing the left.) Text: Some of the drivers and conductors are patient and considerate… but not all! Frame 6: (A close-up of BG looking irritated, with a thought bubble above which shows him thinking) But I never know which bus to board! Frame 7: (A bald man on a wheel chair with a frown on his face) Text: Who am I to complain…! Imagine the plight of those commuters in wheelchairs! Frame 8: (A close-up of BG, with a thought bubble above which shows him thinking) For many like us… it’s simply a case of missing the bus! Frame 9: (BG is standing near the man on the wheelchair. The bus signage pole is close by. A thought bubble shows BG thinking.) I suspect… the basic problem is… we are a minority… in the world's largest democracy… and more importantly… Frame 10: A close-up of BG looking irritated, with a thought bubble above which shows him thinking: We are not a vote bank! (Signed Ponnappa, in Frame 9)
