Sarah,
Thank you. The cola industries have taken a pretty heavy toll on the environment. I find it hightly unethical that these industries deplete ground water in countries where people have scant access to potable water.

frangipani,
Thank you. I am glad you could post now. I used conte crayons for this work.

Suji, Jo, vanathi, alexis,
Thank you all very much.

Immigrant in Canada,
Thank you and your daughter for appreciating the pictures here. I am glad that Reflection I reminded her of Malaysia.

Nirmala,
Thank you. I did put in some symbols of Angels and Devils in this otherwise concrete comparative sketch. The opening of the tender coconut shell has the oval shaped halo associated with Angels (this was entirely incidental, I noticed the halo only after uploading the sketch!). In 'Devils' I consciously twisted the angle of the bottle-shaped furnaces to look like the horns of the devil.

Tammy,
thank you - I liked your take on the topic too!
