Ship Yard Shaman # 1-3

In India, shipyards owned by other countries hire men for vey little. For the workers this money is needed. They will endure undesirable conditions and pain to survive. They come from all over Asia and even Muslim regions on the globe.

Here a Shaman begins his spirit work to remove bit of splintered metal from this grimacing man's eye socket.

    And we think we have it hard ! an existence is all these poor people want and yet many will exploit their poverty for their own greed.

    death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive

    if it weren't for the few vaguely contemporary looking items in their clothing, i'd say this picture could very well have been taken at the beginning of the 19th century, when herman melville was still a seafaring man, and it might show the crew of a whaling ship or some shanghaied hands: no cell phones, no earphones, no trolley carts, no uniform, no safety gear; just the plain and vulnerable "human labor force". no wonder shamans are popular and well respected, as they seem to tend to both body and mind, trying to keep their clients in shape so they can work… amazing series, glenn! greetings, sabine.

    I have seen images here before of these shipyards that cut up old ships, very tough conditions indeed.

    I see here the Shaman is wear those magnetic bracklets that help relief pain from Ronco, but wait, order now and we will send you a second one free, just $19.95. Maybe he is testing them out for the company.
