When you arrive at the garbage dump of Aminbazar, your sense of smell will instantly go insane with the intolerable stench that is produced from tons of debris. Located at the outskirts of Dhaka city in Bangladesh, Aminbazar garbage dump is actually the dumping ground of filth and dirt that the city dwellers produce everyday.But if you somehow manage to overcome your rebel nostril, you'll find it interesting.
You'll find an interesting facade of life, to be more specific. People survive there by collecting valuables from the large area full of debris. They hunt throughout the day in a hope to find something to trade with money in the local market and sometimes they find gold, literally. They live near the garbage dump with their children, who also are engaged in the hunt of life. Nobody is there to think or care about their childhood, they are on their own in this difficult journey of life. Education is an impossible feat and decent living is a dream.Once you are there, you will find that, despite every possible odd humans manage to survive, upholding the flag of an indomitable life.
