Thumbs Up Under Small Shrine

The man thumbed up under the small shrine

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

Not only Chinese residents but also Indian-Burmese dwelled in Yangon. It was said that the area next to the Chinatown was an area called Little India. Walking the streets, I passaged from Chinatown to Little India. In fact, many workers seen in the area looked overseas Indians. The man I met in a street also looked an overseas Indian. When I focused on him, he thumbed up. Above him, a small shrine was seen.

Both Chinese culture and Indian culture had pagan gods. Yet the places where the deities were enshrined depended on the cultures. Most of the Chinese deities were not seen by the roadside. In most cases, they were stationed in prestige halls. On the other hand, Hindu deities were often seen by the roadside. They seemed to less than picky about the place. The shrine above him enshrined a kind of Hindu deities.
