Childs Play..

With cities getting dense and eating up playgrounds and open spaces, the basic need for every child “to play” is silently getting killed; rare occasions like these make me feel good. The civic authorities here have kept many open spaces but almost all of them are converted into gardens having jogging tracks and do not provide open playgrounds, as the fun of playing in open is unlimited….playgrounds available are under the sports complexes and are more formal and systematicaly used for international games and events... children are left to play on streets....
Sadly, more we get organized, the random playing and exercising options are getting out of our lifestyles and we get addicted to machines for the basis body and muscle maintenance.

Very healthy kids. They don't look like they've been sitting on the sofa all day playing Tekken and munching potato crisps.
BTW, those houses behind them are a lot like the ones you find all over northern New Mexico. If they had used car tyres on the roof, they would be exact duplicates!
Places like that are nice to live in. Not much to look at from the outside, but there's a lot of love, comfort and good food on the inside. Much better than living in a mansion or a tower block.
From looking at the picture, I can almost hear the kids playing, someone's pet Chicken making noises and smell dinner cooking.
Rajesh, as usual, "Ya done good!"
Very evocative capture!
