This is Sara, she is 3 years old. I met her while I was with my friend Sayeed Mohammed, interviewing people. She lives with her family in a one room apartment in old Musherib, home to many low income expats including families like hers. This is the same place where hundreds of people were evacuated from their homes a few days ago because the area is going to be demolished. A lot of the people were given short notice and some weren’t even informed well about it, leaving many on the streets after the evacuation. Few days after the notice the electricity and water were cut off, in Ramadan. Little Sara and her family faced a lot of difficulty sleeping and fasting in this unforgiving weather. So did the other workers as well, some who slept on the streets as well. Where else will workers who earn only about Qr.1000 or Qr.1200 find places to live? #qatar #humanrights #oldDoha #workers #portrait #girl #musheirb #laborers #streetphotography          (Note: this isn’t an iPhone picture. And I haven’t shared my work for a very long time. I might start now, inshallah)

Pt.3 and so Khan Chacha(Urdu word, literally meaning Khan uncle) bravely continued the work after we were surrounded by hundreds of bees. Some got concerned. 😂 here he is saying ” just start the work by saying Allah’s name and nothing will bite, even a snake won’t bite”. 👍👍 roo7 ya khan chacha! Wa7sh walla wa7sh 😂😂 #honey #bees #khan #qatar #rambo #fearless

Pt.2 And here we’re extracting the pure honey from the hive and then we were bidding on it 😂

I was overseeing some construction work of my brothers company when we spotted a bee hive full of fresh honey on one of the materials. So one of the Pathan workers who we call Khan Chacha (Urdu word, literally meaning Khan Uncle) proceeded to eat the honey and we all joined him 😂 I’ll have to say it was the best honey I’ve ever tasted sub7anallah #honey #beehive #fresh #qatar #construction #pathan #rambo #raw

The free soul is rare, but you know it when you see it. Basically because you feel good, very good when you are near or with them. #charlesbukowski #bird #free #blue #islamicarchitecture #alone
