  3. Deep thought,well expressed.

    1. 'popular demands' is the essence, thank you for not using a word related to ethics or morality...that would have killed it! Thank you Indu ma'am:)

  4. Turmoil between the conscience and obligations makes solitude a preferred option - the theme of haiga is well depicted by the lone boat Amitji.
