Feature: Rajesh's Day

Caption:

Rajesh comes from the boatman caste. For generations, his ancestors down to his father and brothers have been boatmen. At age 12, Rajesh was also a boatman, but he learned Japanese from tourists and now works in a restaurant. His dream is to become a guide. But it will cost him much money to get his license. He returns to the river to help is older brother when the current is too strong for a single man to row.
