Right eye is the sun , left eye is the moon,  third eye little reddish in effect. Days, weeks, months and years: If you ask him on the numbers of days he devoted to start drawing and completing each painting, you shall only be awestruck: “Maybe, I haven’t kept a count on them as the periods kept on va

Villas become swimming pools: The pathetic conditions of those who shelved money like water to build luxury villas are made to weep as the residential units wore a sight of open swimming pools as long as you can see.
