    Sometimes it is said that “beauty is only ‘skin deep’”. One meaning of this expression is that we are attracted to the outward beauty of the body without understanding its' inner components and that it covers the soul or the true beauty within. When the inside of the body---“blood and guts”---becomes visible, the soul remembers that the person or creature is not their body.

All the youth headed by GopiKrishna’s crew baked up together about...
