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.
