personally know and who was crying over the children who did
not have peace and creature comforts?
That surprizes me because I've seen many children around that age
who have made art of the public appeals variety and they were as far
from crying as is they were lying on the beach licking a
cone. Not to say they were callous, but rather that they
felt very good about what they did to help make everyone see
the injustice that they so recently learned to see.
Their feeling for the children they depicted was never sorrow,
but was in a way, more of a detached compassion for
something they felt the old people in power needed to
be reminded of. Those children would have seen a hug as
an insult to their intelligence, or a typical adult
brushing off of the 'poor sad little kid', a very patronizing
response to what they felt was their very insightful media efforts.
Actually, if there was a Pallavi who reads in here
I'd want to tell you that you did a great job in putting that
thought provolking public service announcement together. It
is artistically pleasing as well as remaining clear and to the
point while holding the interest of the viewer. The use of
the question was smart because it makes the viewer think,
whereas so often the authority method of script turns people
off. Nice presentation, Pallavi.
