This photo was made in Laya, Bhutan. I have come to the house of this little boy's parents to buy some provisions for us. This little boy just came from school and was having his lunch. His lunch was consisting of a bowl of rice and nothing else. He was eating with his hand and watching TV. This intrigued me as there is no reception at this altitude (3800m). When I looked at what was showing at the Tv I was a bit shocked: the channel on was Bhutan Broadcasting Channel (BBC, it was in fact the only TV channel with reception there, through a high antenna) and the programme was a Conference about the economies of the emerging countries from Asia, or something like this.
I was sitting there wondering what this little boy understands about economy and at that moment I realised the power and attraction of "the screen". #powerofthescreen #screenaddiction #layabhutan #bhutanlove #bhutan
