Little girl eating rice at Karwan Bazar slum, Dhaka, Bangladesh, Indian Sub-Continent, Asia
Little girl eating rice at Karwan Bazar slum, Dhaka, Bangladesh, Indian Sub-Continent, Asia. ..Some 12,000 people dwell in 3,000 shanties at Karwan Bazar slum, which was set up on both sides of the rail line. People live without running water in an unsanitary environment. The houses are made of poly bags, bamboos and carton papers. Most of the slum dwellers eke out a meager living by pulling rickshaws while many lead their lives by cleaning sewer pipelines and manholes of the city corporation. Every 30 minutes a train passes by and minor children living in slums on both sides of the rail lines often become victims of accidents as they are unable to comprehend the danger.
