Spices in the Melting Pot
Prafulla C. Sorcar (Manick Sorcar)
Published: 1995
"Cartoonist offers a 'Manick' view of Indian life in America...a wry observer of Indian emigrant life, who makes 'sorcaristic' comments through the medium of cartoons"

- India West, California USA

After receiving rave reviews from many people and the media on his first cartoon book, Sorcar wrote another one titled "Spices in the Melting Pot" but this time focusing on the issues surrounding raising second generation Indian American children. These cartoons became very popular in ethnic magazines and newspapers of all kinds since both children and their parents could laugh together at their cultural differences. Over the past two decades Sorcar has received many letters from people who found his work to capture the immigrant experience in a unique way.
He draws many of his ideas for his cartoons from his own experiences with his wife Shikha and children growing up in the United States.

Sorcar often writes new cartoons for magazines in his spare time and plans to release a new cartoon book in late 2004.
