A young boy in is seen here trying to cross a bridge made out of bending green branches knotted together. The bridge is built on raw sewage drain.

A mis-step by the boy can cause more than physical damage. Note the smiling tamaash-been (spectators) on both sides.

The photo was taken in Larkana on October 2, 2009.

    risking his life to frolic over raw sewage. Very unappetizing.

    But if you didn’t know it was raw sewage, it looks like a lovely shaded canal and a bucolic small town. Mango orchards around Multan are also very beautiful. Lots of pretty places in Pakistan.

    Jee hain,
    these youngsters are sure “challenge`ing” destiny ,
    -or at least N.Vestibulocochlearis and the Cerebellum as well as faculty of Vision.
    All seem to be intact , otherwise there is a gratis washing of clothes, without Ami`Jaans help.
    And there might be a ` besoin de sterilization´ after such contact with water and flora d` Sewage.

    All in all I think the young men ought to be advised regarding this rather potential contamination posibility.

    Kids are just playing, a dangerous game though. You can notice a relatively better bridge in background a few feet away.

    the smiling ones are not the criminals. Criminals are not in this picture because they were attending joint session of parliament.

    They have made a ‘Puliya’ (small bridge) a smaller version of pul (bridge) found commonly in all small towns and in some suburbs of big cities built over raw sewage drains.
