It might be a messy affair to walk back to the home while carrying many things bought in the market. To satisfy the needs, there were some pedicabs called Saiq-ka were parked on the edge of the street market. And the pedicab driver waited for a customer coming. The man in this photo was one of them.

He parked his vehicle by the roadside and leaned back on its passenger seat. His cap was hung from its handle. And a smartphone was in his hand. He burned away time while he fiddled his gear. Watching him, I felt the flux of time. When I came here 8 years ago, no one had a smartphone. The locals didn't have even a cell phone. And they read books or magazines in these circumstances. Yet they seemed to spend less and less time with books and magazines. Most of the locals had their own smartphone now.
