“CAUTION – DANGER OF LIFE” a notice from a strip down ship laid on soil of the ship breaking yard.  Ironical like this notice, the symbol of danger hangs like omen on the heads of the workers. Frequent accidents cause deaths and have occurred due to lack of safety measures in cutting the ship steel.  Early on 2009 the High Court of Bangladesh ordered the government to suspend operations in all ship-breaking yards, unless they obtained environmental clearance within two weeks. The Court also directed the shipyard authorities to ensure safe working conditions for the workers. Yet, the work is going on as usual.  (image by adnan)
