Wandering through old Old Dhaka I discovered these tenement buildings and decided to venture further inside. After walking through a maze of corrugated buildings I stumbled upon a school with a student population of 1,200. There isn't enough space inside the school for everyone to attend at one time, so students are designated a morning position or one in the afternoon.
The front gates of the school.
It was at least 35 degrees outside and inside 120 + students crammed the inside of the classroom, packed the hallways and peered through windows at a glimpse of the lesson.

I wasn't able to capture many photos due to the cramped classroom and the feverish pitch within the school. After an hour and a half of teaching, feeding and "autographing" everyones paper, I was ready to hit the streets of Dhaka, which somehow seemed less chaotic.
Very cool drawing here.
The other classrooms were much calmer.
