5 people in his life is a flagship publication from Toonstory.

If we observe closely, we can see that the people that we come across every day, have some peculiar idiosyncrasies.

Some responses are robotic, some IVR types. Many euphemistic and ephemeral. And all of them sound downright funny if we slice and dice the conversations into straight humour. Slyness, opportunism, aggression, innuendos.

Be it anything which is second nature to humans, and it can translate to humour.

Through “5 people in his life”, the author tries to bring those funny encounters that a man may be facing when dealing with 5 types of people. And hence the title, “5 people in his life”.

In the title, the “man” is the person who encounters 5 people from various walks of life.

We often hear the phrase “men are men”. But apart from being common as “men”, what is also common is the kind of people “men” deal with.

This commonality is explored in the book through the funny lens of the author and in the form of cartoons.

The book explores some common situations that “he” deals with 5 typical type of people. But while these situations are explored, the author tries to extract the funny side of the same. And this is illustrated in the form of cartoons & single panel gags.
