Playing at the beach

This is one thing I have come to appreciate about Indians: their childlike-ness.

They will sing a song with motions and enthusiasm.
They will create a short performance for the enjoyment of others.
And they'll play in the sand at the beach with abandon.

The simple enjoyment I witness of some of life's small pleasures has been good inspiration for me.

Take this guy, for instance--he sat enjoying putting mud on his knee and having the waves wash it off for over half an hour.

And this other man took his sandcastle building very seriously. He was working on it all afternoon and into the sunset. People walking by stopped to have their photograph taken with his masterpiece.

Yes, simple enjoyment--it's a good characteristic.
