A face reflecting business. Reply ↓ ;) Reply ↓ I have seen too, that poverty does not mean that folk cannot make merry and be happy, providing they have the basics in life and love in their hearts. We all know the opposite, lots of money, all you want, yet still a great void in the soul. Reply ↓ Yeah, totally agreed :) Reply ↓ What a beautiful, detailed captured, Joshi.
