    The concentrated contrast shown between the petulant cry of the child seeking the warmth of his mother and the frozen artificiality of the branded shop comes across as a shock and leaves the reader wondering what can be done to redeem the situation. Meaniful thoughts put to words in meaningful manner. (Report) Reply
