RUST AND SWEAT

Char Kaliganj, slum and home to one of the largest shipyards in Asia. Rusty, old supertanker ships come to die in this place when their lives as vessels on the ocean expire. The age of labourers ranges from 8 to 80 and they all work together. The work is hard, crude, dirty and dangerous but it gives thousands of them employment and wages to feed their families.⁣
