- The kids are reading comics, but the market of the famous Indian comics character Chacha Chaudhary, Sabu, Pinky and Bilu have diminished.

Why backward from western countries

- Cartoons, comics in abroad also had a choice of adults, so it continues to date, but in India it was considered only worth of children and kept.
