You don't have to be good....

They had strung a net across the road, and using streetlights as floodlights were engaged in a game of volleyball. None of them was particularly skilled; they had to keep interrupting the game to let pedestrians pass. But they were all having fun.
“Why have you blocked up the street”, and elderly gentleman reprimanded. “Don’t you have anything better to do?”
They smiled and asked him to join in too. He didn’t, but stayed to watch.
You don’t have to be very good at something in order to enjoy it. That you enjoy something is reason enough to do it.
Just off one of the busiest streets in Bombay, is this narrow lane where traffic is so sparse that people can actually block the road off to play a game of volleyball. Taken on a cool October evening, this forms a part of my Pictorial Flashback of 2012.

Natasha - Oh, I love that sort of impromptu enjoyment of something fun. Savouring life like that doesn't require talent - just open-ness to enjoying something.
