Rubel works at a steel rolling factory on Hagi Nader Hossain Road, Jinjira, Dhaka. His parents work with him as well. Together they earn an honest living; cruel and discriminatory at first glance but certainly honest and important. Whatever they earn, they spend on education, food and housing. Dhaka, one of the world's biggest and most densely populated metropolises, is a tough place to survive. If you are able-bodied, you better work...there's no free meal.
