Mini-Monks at the Tawang Monastery - India
These young monks were playing on a cell phone on a rooftop just outside of the gompa at the Tawang Monastery. Due to its remote location and restricted access for foreigners, the Mon region of Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh, India is one of the last areas in which Tibetan culture remains mostly intact. With the recent construction of a road leading to the nearby border with Bhutan, the region is no longer as isolated and is increasingly open to outside influence. This photo offers an interesting juxtaposition of traditional culture with the products of such globalization.
