He was extremely gregarious

Aakash in Calcutta was happy when others were happy but he was usually happy because many families with many aunts and uncles, and many children lived on his street, because he could drop in anywhere at any time, and because he loved to talk and to be with people. It was easy for him to find someone to talk to and get carried away in the moment. When they shooed him away, which they always did, he always found another open door.
