Hundreds of Rohingya migrants have settled in various Indian cities over the last three years following sectarian violence between Buddhists and Muslim Rohingyas in Myanmar.

There are an estimated 6,500 Rohingya migrants in India with refugee status. But migrants claim that there are thousands more living without any source of livelihood or support from the Indian government, Euroasia Review reported.

In an attempt to eke out a living, the women contribute to the family income by going through piles of scrap, and selling off what they can to junk dealers. With no education or any formal training, the men work as daily wagers, pull cycle rickshaws or sell vegetables.

Myanmar (formerly Burma), is a Southeast Asian nation of more than 100 ethnic groups, bordering India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand.
