Golapi Begum lost her husband 12 years ago in an accident in the ship breaking yard in Bangladesh. She can’t remember exactly how her husband died. But she still keeps the top cover of the coffin that the dead body of her husband brought in from the ship breaking yard to her village. When a worker is killed in an accident, the contractor, who is responsible for the workers, will only pay the costs of sending the body back to the victim’s family and arranging for their burial. Her only son now works in ship breaking yard.  (image by adnan)
