This is painted in acrylic, as a wall painting proposal. It wasn’t selected among the top ~20 paintings to be painted on the campus walls.
Lot of its design is symbolic.
Depicting atrocities on a common man,
it also depicts the recurrence of similar atrocities by the bureaucracy and government (couple of powerful heads), on a simple common man who wants nothing more than happiness (his own and the people around him or related to him (people he cares for)). He is helpless, and has no other choice than to give in to the irrational demands of the wealthy and powerful.
History repeats. Not the good parts.
