Children catching small crabs and putting them in plastic bags. Proudly displaying their catch.
Not only were they not scared but actually quite enjoying this - sort of like a game. What was scary was the heavy machines operating with cutters & welders for the ship breaking industry. Unmindful, the kids just went about their live.
It was also mind boggling to see large number of people were using this mucky water of the river to swim, play, drink, gargle, brush their teeth and take bath all within feets of each other! Same water has the ship breaking with oil leaking making the river thick black as well as crab & fishing all side by side. Young, old, everyone seems to have the world's best immunity system!

Buriganga River (Bangla: বুড়িগঙ্গা Buŗigônga "Old Ganges"). Buriganga is the life line and much happens in and around this river. It is the main river flowing beside Dhaka, capital cityof Bangladesh. With an average depth of 39 feet (12 m) its quite amazing to see the activities along the river. Unfortunately, the river is Dhaka's main outlet of sewage waste and is threatened by pollution and waste.
