fish traps

With boats loaded with fish traps, fishermen head out for fishing in Shanir Haor. Locally known as “chai”, “gui” and “duari”, these traps are made with bamboo and plastic yarn, designed to catch small fish. For many of the fishermen, this method of fishing is a part of their tradition passed on from generation to generation. But due to an incessant use of current nets, the number of fish has declined in the water bodies over the last couple of years. As a result, this age-old method is dying out. The photo was taken last week in Sunamganj's Tahirpur upazila. Photo: Sheikh Nasir

unsafe practice

Without any safety gear, a worker of a cable service provider repairs a cable with his ladder leaned against an electric transformer pole. Such unsafe practices go unabated without enforcement of labour safety laws. The photo was taken from Muradpur in Chittagong city recently. Photo: Prabir Das

A SEA OF UMBRELLAS

Caused by a depression in the bay, it started raining on Thursday. It rained yesterday too. But life goes on. Fifth and eighth-graders, aspirants of a private scholarship, had to carry on with their goals. As they attend the exams at Zindabazar Govt Agragami Girls School and College in Sylhet city, their guardians wait patiently in the rain on the college compound. Photo: Sheikh Nasir
