Thank You so much Ralph!

The children are adorable. What song are they singing... can you loosely and briefly translate?

You seem to have completely delighted them when you used your webcam to play with their faces. I loved their joyous giggles. The little angel with the lilac flower in her hair was super-precious.

If I'm not mistaken, this is part of how you do your art, yes? You push and pull and find something extraordinary in the changed image.

So much of what I research and read is so sad. Coming into this Hub was a real joy. I'm so glad you've come back and brought this wonderful glimpse of your world back with you.

Regards and affection to you and your family. Welcome back. :)

Sorry Iðunn for delay reply...I went to village for two days after that My Lap-top's (Macbook Pro) mother board has gone down...while I was working on computer-suddenly, and Hard disk of Dell has gone for not using for a long time...so I am in the middle on no where...

The Children are singing in Mandi language, which I do not understand, but I know they were singing festival songs...

Yes...I was mesmerized by viewing their joyous faces...

Yes in Bangladesh too aboriginal people has their struggles...hope they will win over come some day...

I will back soon when able to manage a computer.

No worries, rabi, I figured you were busy. I'm sorry to hear you lost your hard drive. I hate it when that happens to me.

I will have to research the politics of Bangladesh, but to say I know your heart is always right so you may keep my good wishes with the aboriginal people of Bangladesh that they may know justice.

I look forward to your return. I am absolutely delighted you came back around bearing exquisite beauty to Hubs again.
