Here we have an entry from Akshay Omkumar, who explains, "This pic was taken by me when I was strolling along Alleppey Beach on Onam day, which is pretty auspicious for Kerala. As tradition goes, on Onam everyone gets new clothes, but for those who live in the city getting that's a routine event."

"As a child, one does not need much to be happy -- a new dress, new toys, things like that. In this picture are children of fishermen ,all wearing new clothes having a fun evening on the beach. They might not have a camera, but at the end of the day, getting new clothes and posing for a cam is like icing on the cake for them!"
