The 95-year-old Laxman, a current employee of The Times Of India, was admitted to a private nursing home here Friday due to some kidney and chest-related issues.

"Saturday, he was in ICU and this (Sunday) morning miraculously bounced back. Again his condition is a cause for concern," a family member, who did not want to be identified, told IANS.

A Magsaysay laureate, Laxman's cartoons have regaled generations since 1950s till a few years ago when he stopped drawing due to ill health.
