"I spent the entire summer reading a lot of webcomics, and it inspired me to start my own. I noticed a lack of non-political Indian satire and chose to base my comics on that theme," SaiGo told BuzzFeed.

"I used to make comics in drawing books as a kid, but simply for my own enjoyment. I had started a webcomic series titled 'Growing Pain' two years ago but never went past one chapter," he added.

Considering that Indian parents are a recurrence in the comic, he added that his parents love it, but that none of the characters are based on them even if they do find some traits relatable.

"The comic characters are not representations of me or my family, or any specific group of people. They are just embodiments of the various stereotypes that prevail in Indian society," he said.
