Title: Changing Times

Caption: The Indian woman talks on her cellular phone on the steps of the Sri Vadapathira Kaliamman Temple in Singapore. Anthropologist stays anthropologist in everyday situations. The picture was taken during the break from international scientific conference in Singapore, during the walk in Little India, the Indian part of the city. Used to the practice of not disturbing sacred places, I took the picture through the opening in the fence as I was taken by the colors, the grace of the Indian woman, the highly traditional surroundings and the very modern technology in use. The picture shows how all of this can coexist and complete each other.
