Bankerohan Bridge is a playground for brothers Rick (age 11) and Rocky (age 9), as they hang around pipes and railings oblivious to the rush of vehicles and the ongoing simuleneous repairs on the bridge and the water pipes.

The brothers and two other siblings have dropped out of school. “Our father earns so little, we don’t have a chance to finish school,” said Rick in the vernacular.  Like other families living under the bridge, parents work in the nearby public market as cart pushers or porters, where earnings could barely sustain their daily food and basic needs.
