Pelle the Conquerer

This picture was taken during my NGO internship in Daman. Generally I am not fond of kids, but the picture of this guy with keys in his mouth reminded me of my childhood. As kids we were so adventerous and thought that we could take over the world. Superheros and super villians have enthralled us to no end. This is what counts. Travelling over sofas as if they were the highest mountain ranges, carrying guns and fighting with each other as if representing two countries....those were the days of make - believe and fantasy. I guess that is why I dislike kids, because they can still have their innocent fun, while we slog away still trying to make a sense of the world and of ourselves.
