This winter, vegetable farmer Azmol Ali was blessed with a good yield, which bore him a profit twice that of the preceding years. While he cultivated different kinds of vegetables, Azmol took a leap of faith and decided to grow a hybrid variety of sweet pumpkin, that grows well despite minimum care. As its lush flowers start to bloom, they signal hope for Azmol. This photo was taken from Sylhet’s Mogalgaon union. Photo: Sheikh Nasir
As the road in front of the Regional Election Office in Agargaon remains closed, local teens took up the opportunity to ride their bikes in style, performing stunts to show-off their moves. With no protective gears on, their moment of enjoyment can turn into a risky endeavour as vehicles still use the road to find parking space. This photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Sk Enamul Haq
Aminbazar resident Mohammad Miah used to make a living out of providing boat rides around the area’s low-land, where waterlogging was a constant issue every monsoon. But for the last few years, the problem has subsided to an extent. While this is welcome for the area’s residents, for Mohammad, it meant the end of his run with this boat. He was therefore carrying it to a suitable place, where he could break it down and use the scraps as firewood. This photo was taken recently. Photo: Palash Khan
