A perfect fusion of the old and the new with this woman working in her kitchen with mobile in hand. Technology has really gone places.

That's a perfect illustration of what you are saying. When I was in Spain even the beggars had mobile phones - needless to say they didn't get anything from me.

Our coconut plucker has one. He takes it with him when he climbs and it so amusing when he talks from atop the tree.

Technology brings everyone together no matter where they are in rural areas or in big ciries.

And to think that for some it is a bane Look at this lady. Her attention is not on her cooking.

Yes, the old and the new are at times a good mix.

In Nepal Vin saw some quite run-down mud-brick houses but they all had their satellite dishes on the roof.
