The picture "India's Cellphone Revolution" was published in French weekly newspapers LE 1 released the 14th December, 2016.

It is a portrait of a Sadhu with a mobile phone carried as an amulet necklace, it was shot along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benares).

India has a capacity of keeping its traditions while ajusting to modernity.

Revolutions come slow but life changes fast and in the instant this holy man with a naked body, long matted hair and beard, appears wearing his mobile phone among religious symbols such as rudraksh beads necklaces.

The contrast says so much about today's India, a country that manages to live in several centuries at the same time.

As they say,"incredible india"...!
