Child Labour...

With a live wire over his shoulder, a boy aged around eight holds a bulb while a man repairs a motorcycle at a garage in the capital's College Gate area. Like him, thousands of children across the country have to do such hazardous work every day without any safety gears to earn a living. The photo was taken a couple of days ago. Photo: Prabir Das

Garbage on road...

Garbage is piled up on almost half of a street in the capital's Khilgaon area, obstructing traffic movement and giving off foul smell. Though there is a large garbage container nearby, waste is dumped there out in the open. In this photo taken around 2:45pm yesterday, a schoolboy is seen crossing the area on his mother's lap covering his nose. Photo: SK Enamul Haq

Chittagong city traffic congestion

Cars parked in multiple files in front of a private school in Chittagong city, leaving less than half of the road for passing of vehicles. The cars are used for picking and dropping students and cause traffic congestion in the area on a regular basis. The photo was taken on Surson Road around 2:30pm on Sunday. Photo: Rajib Raihan
