A reflection of the Artist : (( There are people who avoid // Fine arts // and the cultural events of their Hometown….and when they copy something, they feel badly even terrible. These people seem deprived…cold…impassive and are considered....…untalented and graceless.Also can never sing to the tunes of others …and generally… they find it unbearable to imitate others. If you can unlock these people ….you can find the new cultural memory.))
