The Little Mariners

Kids playing at the beach of the St. Martin island on the southernmost part of Bangladesh. These kids, belonging to the extremely poor strata of the society mostly work as laborers or coolies in the indigenous harbor. St. Martin is a fishing port of Bangladesh. Without having any formal education or touch of any modernity, they go through a very arduous and disturbed childhood.
