Ayesha Khatun received an unexpected gift -- a pair of hilsas -- from local Awami League lawmaker Sanwar Hossain, second from right, yesterday, a day after The Daily Star published a photo of her on Pahela Baishakh. In her conversation with the photojournalist, the century-old woman had reminisced about the bygone days when a big hilsa would cost Tk 1 or Tk 2 but could not remember the last time she tasted the fish. Prompted by the photo, the lawmaker visited her house at Bil Nahali village of Tangail sadar upazila and also gave her Tk 1,000. Photo: Mirza Shakil
