Lot of linguists have bemoaned the lack of an equivalent word for FUN in India.
Is it becoz we are (no, officially we are no longer poor silly) full of ulhaasam, utsaaham, santosham, aandandam?
(happiness, excitement, joy, eternal joy)
but where is the fun you aks?
Fun is for Wimps.
Eternal Joy aka Anandam is for the SAT CHIT ANANDAns
Fun is temporal, Ananda is spiritual.
