Amruta, Although, human behaviour cannot be described in limited words (perhaps sound energy, viz. 'buzz' or 'om' could be the 'bee(j) mantra'), for there exist unlimited role models,,, it's a very good presentation!

:) Onto, P, not into! You've done the valuable deed of making one aware of the hive in the first place. There remain the options of either leaving the hive for good and never looking back; or of staying - on the periphery, just outside - to nudge others who may be inclined to listen. The latter choice, of course, is riddled with the likelihood being ignored, shunned or stung by the mob of 'insiders' for turning traitor.

lovely piece of work, I hope you got paid for it, anyhow. I think it's easy, especially w/ the Internet, especially concerning sexual roles, to take one hard side or another and to dismiss the opposite side as barbaric (conservative) or immoral (progressive); but I think you're right; to dismiss the other side is to blind oneself to the stakes involved and the large forces at work -- social cohesion, stability versus adaptability, longterm economic sustainability ...... Anyhow, existence is chaos. An ability to digest many different worldviews is an asset if you want to exert your will on the future. In summary, I like your comix and look forward to reading Kari
