It is not necessary to have an expensive equipment/ toys to get enjoyed. A simple "LATTU" (as called by in Bengali)can give a lot.
There is nothing important what we have but it matters how much we utilize those.

Nicely framed with a lot of action. Love that smile.. The foreground image acts like a natural frame here. well done.

Nice one Partha'da
The essence of childhood is well reflected with the nice blend of rural India's trademark...
The lattu in motion is nicely shot but if the by was a little easy in his looks it would have been better...

Wow, what a fabulous photo, Partha. So dynamic. Like a top itself, it's about to topple over. You just got the boy's eyes in the corner. The hand and top are actually out of out of focus, but holding their own anyway, anchored by the glowing coal eyes of the young girl and her blazing smile. The colors are all in harmony, -- even to the smudges on the wall and the smudges on the girl's blue tunic. And the lines of the spinning top, echo the corrugations of the closed show gate. Great one. Best, -Hugh

Well said, Partha, and the picture tells a story. Happiness in the rural areas are very often not defined by urban standards, the rural folks find their own lives and happiness un-matched, they live for daily purpose and for themselves.
A nice shot, though full face of this boy can be better. TFS

Thats a cool bit of action that brings that tingling sensation back to my palm. I feel the same way like I used to feel when i used to do that thing as a child! Nice job here

Hi Partha, fantastic compo in a dynamical way.
The blur on the hand is well seen.
All children are well disposed within the frame.
