THE SIEGE CONTINUES
The Vanara bring chaos to the streets of LANKA CITY, blockading major government offices and important places with a festival of disobedience and democracy. All organised within the Vanara compound by RAMA and SUGRIVA.

THE OCCUPATION CONTINUES INTO THE NIGHT
The Vanara have safely occupied the centre of Lanka City and sit comfortably in control of a main traffic intersection. Their camp has been built, drinks and food procured from vendors, chairs are being set out and the volume turned to eleven, for a night of speeches of resistance and demands against unfair Raksasa Rule.

In Photography and representation in Ramayana: The Thread of Luminance I reflect on the importance of photography in SE Asia ( in particular Thailand) and why I've featured this in Ramayana: The Thread of Luminance.
The VANARA's crippling protest continues and the events haven't been missed by the world's media leading to on the spot interviews with the leaders, SUGRIVA and RAMA, bringing for the first time SITA's realisation that her school friends are alive in DISRUPTION AT THE CENTRE.

Having lived for a while in Thailand there is a common sight of pictures of the late King who pasted away in October 2016. These pictures decorate every home and business and are even applied on the sides of skyscparers and bridges across roads.
