    She stopped dreaming about real things, then she moved to the incredible dreams.... It's a great transformation of one's dreams from a case into another case. (Report) Reply

    Innumerable facets to think of, feel, work with, and be concerned about with love. How wonderfully and humanely one viewed a girl who face d caging, by some force against it. Very touching. (Report) Reply

    she was passed from hand to hand
    for mere amusement and joy.

    seems to be too sad, but she has to come out of it, instead of trying to rest beside her mother.

    any way congratulations Susanta Pattnayak..Keep it up (Report) Reply
