All for a Morsel of Food


The city is expanding every day. Life is becoming cruel with unemployment rising faster. Working people hurry to their workplaces while the jobless do something for a living. Both do it for a morsel of food. As most people look for fast food at cheaper prices it comes as a morsel of hope for the roadside vendors. They sell cakes, boiled eggs, chanachur and many such items just to feed the hungry mouths at home. Photo: Srabon reza

Although confining and torturing a wild animal is prohibited by laws, a section of poor people still finds it a way to earn their livelihood by becoming monkey charmers. Here, a 'proud' street boy, one of the audiences at a show near Mirpur Gol Chakkar yesterday, was so amused by the feat that he gave Tk 8 to the monkey while others were giving only Tk 2.
