13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Suspicious Monk

This is a Buddhist Monk in a temple made of bamboo and wood at Bandarban, a hilly district in Bangladesh. Every morning, the monk recites the Buddhist scripture is known as The Tripitaka, printed in Burmese alphabet. The monk is unwelcoming to any stranger, except the devotees. The picture is very interesting when he threw suspicious eye, especially for a photographer. Here tobacco beside the scripture makes him embarrassed because tobacco and scripture cannot be at the same place.
