A gifted artist, F.N. Souza, developed a personal manner in depicting scenes with lovers. The critic Terence Mullally has observed that the sinister twist to Souza's imagination tends to express itself in either excessive violence or distastefully in pornography. Although this image can not be considered pornographic in the least, this depiction gives a startling implication of a love fest.
