Happiness: money can’t buy

In the “International Trade Fair-2013”- Dhaka, Bangladesh; while I was shooting, I suddenly observed in one corner of the back yard that few street kids some how managed access and were very busy playing “Break the Castle”. They gathered a good number of one time cups from the trash. Then they were making castle by placing one cup over another very carefully. Finally they were throwing a stone to break the castle and they were enjoying this thing a lot again and again.

“It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness” – Charles Spurgeon. I got the proof of this quote again by seeing those kids playing. In the fair there was a lot of people, unsatisfied in spite of spending a huge amount of money for very expensive things. I guess those kids were the happiest people in the fair. So I could not resist myself to get a little share of their happiness and when they found that, someone with smile on face and a camera in hand was concern enough about their activities their happiness became double and I had some pictures and most importantly, imperceptible enjoyment with them.
