All The World Is Blue
Most people know that Dubai is expanding at a great rate of knots. And here are some of the many hundreds of workers from the Indian sub-continent that are making it happen. One has to feel sorry for them, as they are basically treated as slave labour. Working long hours in the searing heat, for very little pay, and living in squalor in camps far from the glistening city. They can't leave because their employers hold their passports. It's one of the sadder sides to Dubai's success, and one that does trouble me a great deal. Unfortunately I think there is very little anyone can do to help them.
