An Interesting Scene occurs at Bom around this time.When poor kids holding Small tin cans with openings for coins go around the streets requesting folks to contribute to their 31st Dec Party.

I asked a few kids what they would do with the cash collected & They said they would pool it together with the rest of their friends,pick up some snacks,burn an effigy of the old man they cart around & place a board on it which said Goodbye 2007,welcome 2008.

They seemed very happy with the idea,& to them it was the best thing that would be happening.So I added to their kitty & went along.

Its amazing how kids can be happy with so little.
Thought I'd share this.

These must be Indian kids.

In America, kids dress in all black with white face paint and whine to there parents that they want the newest video game. If their parents don't but the video game the kids light the neighbors cat on fire and shoot up the school.

American kids are never happy with what they have.

I think you can extend that to include the rest of the continent's middle and upper classes kids...they are never ever satisfied.

How about the rest of the world!? Kids today, mine included, are very spoiled and materialistic.
Not that I have lost the upper hand on this, but looking back to when I was a child, it is just not the same anymore. Everything is about Xbox, PS3 etc.
I love games like these myself, but I so not let it run my life, or my kids for that matter.

When in doubt, flat out!
