We saw scores of children playing on the roadside in Bhutan, while their mothers worked on road construction...They are migrant wokers from India, usually Bengal.
Most of the road construction in Bhutan is done by these workers. A large Construction Company is responsible for virtually all the work in Bhutan. Their population is too small to supply skilled workers at present.
It was a most disturbing sight, though this gorgeous little girl doesn't give that impression....

Thanks for all your great comments on my Bhutan series so far.
