Scenes of activity within the four walls of the forts and palaces are a popular theme with the artists. Men in most erotic moods; women amusing themselves; scenes of dance and music etc are oft represented. Children are a part of a household ? their existence is not denied but their depiction in paintings is minimal.

The architectural background suggests that the scene takes place inside the palatial walls. Beyond the walls, heads of large trees try to peep in. The glory of the sky is achieved in blue and golden hues. Coming back to architecture, it consists of pillars, arches, niches and domes and the artist brings out their existence in a harmonious way. A man selling items of major interest to the children is surrounded by them. The children are dressed well and wear strings of pearls. They are bare feet and only the seller is wearing slippers. The man holds a bamboo displaying his wares ? paper balloons painted in different colors and paper windmills tied to the edge of a long stick. The children have bought the desired items and are in the process of paying for them.

The foreground is absolutely bare. The colour palette hinges between brilliant and sober.
