Sujan works as helper of a cutter. But, he doesn’t want to be a cutter. “I will make enough money from here to start a barber shop. I don’t have to do hard labour like here in my shop”, he says. Most workers come like Sujan came with dreams come with a better life, yet many leave with marks for lifetime. The children work mainly as gas cutters assistants and move small iron pieces from one place to another. They either work in the yard from sunrise to sunset or do the night shift. On average they receive 50-60 taka a day for their efforts. There are no educational or recreational facilities. (image by adnan)
