India – West Bengal: Caretakers' makeshift beds at Bundapani Tea Estate, in the Dooars region. The garden, which houses more than 7,000 people, used to employ around 1,215 workers until it closed down in July 2013. In the hope the garden will reopen again one day, voluntary caretakers patrol the factory to prevent ransackers from looting machinery and equipments.
