Shattered house, shattered dream …

A child is seen playing after the eviction of Sattala slum in Mohakhali, Dhaka.

Did they think of me when they evicted the slum?

Some 2,000 families were forcibly evicted without notice from their homes in Sattala slum in Dhaka on Thursday, 5 August 2010 to make way for a physiotherapy college. Newslink: www.bdnews24.com/details.php?id=169965&cid=2

The residents of Sattala slum in Dhaka were given only 30 minutes before their homes were demolished. Rubbles of the homes demolished are seen in the picture.

This photo was taken on August 8, 2010 using a Sony DSC-T300 after the eviction.
