These Bangladeshi people are unloading a barge of sand

These Bangladeshi people are unloading a barge of sand, basketload by basketload. Every time they dump their basket on top of the growing sandpile they receive a coin from the paymaster. The ambitious ones run back to the barge for their next load. This photo was taken during Ramadan, when Muslims fast from food and water during the day, only eating at night.
