Living on the edge

These boys are literally living on the edge, on the border of India and Bangladesh. Mostly drop out from school due to poverty, they scratch a meagre living by sorting different sizes and colours of stones/pebbles flowing in the downstream river. These sorted stones are used in construction works all around the country.
