Heavy work

Kabita Pramanik is one of around three hundred locals working long days building the sea defence wall on Sagar Island. The heavy concrete blocks for the government funded sea defence are made on the spot and manoeuvred by back breaking manual labour. The wall will be 2 kilometres long and with hundreds of people working, it will take a year to build.
