Taslima Akhter writes for LightBox about the photograph:
Every time I look back to this photo, I feel uncomfortable — it haunts me. It’s as if they are saying to me, we are not a number — not only cheap labor and cheap lives. We are human beings like you. Our life is precious like yours, and our dreams are precious too.

One day i was walking on the road with my friend Rasel. We were going to collect my print from Konica Lab. Suddenly Rasel stopped and start talking with an old guy coming from the opposite side of the road. He was wearing a white half sleeve shirt with black pant .I was standing beside him.He was takling very slowly. I was feeling little bit bored cause I was on a hurry . I was praying when this two slow talker will finish their discussion. At last It ended. And the old guy went away. i got angry with Rasel. Rasel said… Do u know who is this guy ? . I said , dont care . Then again Rasel asked, so i said ok… tell me… Who is this Guy ?
Rasel: U really dont know who was he?
Rasel: Very sad. his name Is BIJON SARKER.
Me :Bijon SArker! This guy???
