Laughter Cures Poverty

Light Heart Cures Poverty
Who said "the poor cannot be happy "?

The toothless, but hearty smile of an Halakki lady conceals a life of utter poverty, illiteracy and exploitation. Traditionally, these tribals led a simple farming life along the Sahyadri mountains in southwest India, but the extremely simple lifestyles of Halakkis made them vulnerable against the currents of "progress" and in the recent years, their men have taken to drinking and gambling in large numbers and the women have fallen prey to the exploits of men, Indian and foreign.
