illegal stone extraction

This little girl calls it a day after extracting what the locals term "red" stones. Though she is supposed to be at a school at this stage of life, education is an unaffordable luxury to her. Children like her eke out a living by selling the stones to buyers. However, illegal stone extraction remains a concern. In January, a woman died in a mudslide while digging the earth. The photo was taken from Jaflong in Sylhet's Goainghat upazila recently. Photo: Sheikh Nasir
