Nainwal is a village in rural Haryana abutting a new government research centre - one of India's many striking juxtapositions of modernity and timelessness. The housewife on the left invited me in for chai during one of my walks. She and her mother were tickled with the camera's instant digital images.

Location: Nainwal, Haryana, India
