A glimpse of desperation: In the sizzling heat, a woman with two children, including a two month old, sits on the ground as she waits to buy essentials from an Open Market Sale truck at fair prices. She had gone to the outlet after 9:00am and was exhausted when this photo was taken around 1:10pm. With high inflation and the cost of living increasing, many in the city have no option but to rely on OMS outlets. Photo: Rashed Shumon
