SLEEPING LIKE SAND / DHAKA

Kadar moton ghumai literally translates to ‘sleeping like sand’. It is generally used for small children who drape themselves around their mother, sleeping as if the world didn’t exist. These children work long hours, often carrying heavy loads. Sleeping on a concrete floor under the open sky, might not be luxury. But when the body screams for rest, sleep comes easy.

NATURE'S FURY

On October 8, 2005, Kashmir was struck by a severe earthquake. The epicenter lay in the Pakistani sector. Cities were wiped from the face of the earth, mountainsides turned into avalanches of mud and rock. Nearly a hundred thousand people died, and four million were otherwise affected by the disaster. Shahidul Alam visited the Pakistani disaster area two months after the quake. People were still clearing away the ruins and seeking the bodies of victims. At the same time, houses were being rebuilt and the first improvised shops were reopening. 'Nature had shown its fury,' says the photographer. 'Now people were fighting back.'
