Bangladesh's Traveling Circus

JAMSHA, BANGLADESH - NOVEMBER 1: Baby Akhter Sultang applies makeup as her 3 year old son, Shobujh, lays on their bed at the Olympic Circus, November 1, 2013 in Jamsha, Bangladesh. Baby, who doesn't know her age, grew up in the circus without ever having the chance to attend school. She has been performing for 6 years, does not enjoy performing but says she stays because she needs the money. 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. (Photo by Getty Images)
