One afternoon in my native city of Khulna I found this man was working alone in his workshop. It was dark inside and he was running a risky rolling machine to make client’s order. People working in workshop often come from the poorest areas of the country. They work without any safety protection for this type of job, which is very risky for their life. This man is skilled but not educated that much. He knows about risk factors but he didn’t say anything when I asked about it, he just smiled.
