Raju Prasad Lamichhane (L) , mother Mun Maya and brother Dilli speak during an interview at their half-finished house in Telkot village, near Kathmandu October 1, 2013. Dilli and father Shiva worked for a company making portacabins. Shiva painted panels, Dilli said, doing 16-hour shifts in air heavy with heat and fumes. Like many Nepalis in Qatar, the Lamichhanes said their terms tied them to two-year contracts and the company kept their passports. They put up with bosses who called them "dogs" and "monkeys", they said, because 900-1,200 Qatar riyal a month was far more than they could get at home. One day in August last year, Shiva returned to his dormitory, vomited and passed out. He died in hospital after 19 days in a coma. The family said the company paid the hospital bill and sent his body home. The cause of death was registered as coronary failure. He had no history of heart problems. Picture taken October 1, 2013.
