boats anchored

Development often comes at the expense of the poor. In riverine Bangladesh, boats were once the only means of transportation in many areas, and people used to earn a livelihood by ferrying passengers. Today, with phenomenal development in communication infrastructure including bridges, the term “ferryman” is almost as dead as the profession itself. A group of small local boats anchored in a beautiful pattern -- because the boatmen do not have much work these days -- were seen at Kamrangirchar in Dhaka yesterday. Photo: Amran Hossain

Wall of Humanity

A boy looks through a book in a pile where no item is up for sale. Anyone in need of anything kept here, including clothes and books, can just pick it up and take it. This concept, called “Manabatar Dewal” (Wall of Humanity), is currently trending throughout Bangladesh. This one was set up by Asad, a resident of Lalbagh in Old Dhaka. The man collects the clothes and books from around the neighbourhood and puts them up for the poor. The photos were taken yesterday. Photo: Amran Hossain

Boatloads of vegetables

Boatloads of vegetables have been arriving on the bank of the Buriganga river in the capital's Shyambazar. Thanks to good harvests in the neighbouring districts, prices of vegetables have already started dipping in kitchen markets in Dhaka. The pictures were taken on Tuesday morning. Photo: Anisur Rahman
