Generations of low income families are born into circuses with rarely the hope of ever working in different profession or escaping the harsh realities of the circus.

The children, often very young, are trained to be full working members usually without the opportunity for an education.

As modernization slowly takes over landscape of Bangladesh, the circus is a dying art form and is moving further and further away from mainstream entertainment. (Getty)
