Before entering the temple, about 6 girls happily skipped towards us, asking us to buy things from them. This happens at almost every temple, but here, it's different. It's funny because, they look totally happy. We were later told that it was their school holiday that day, and they were using the time to sell items to make some extra cash to buy books. About 6 of them surrounded me, and they introduced themselves, asking me to buy some things from them, be it scarves or silver figures or paper fishes. They looked like they were having fun, jostling with each other and running about. I managed to make 2 of them agree fro a picture if i bought something from them. Funny thing was, they tried to sneak away playfully but when i saw them they just froze and smiled! Before we left the place, i saw all of them running about across the road laughing, and there was a sense of peace. This is how life should be like. I will never forget those girls.
