day labourers

Abdul Sattar, in his mid-40s, along with many other men and women, has been sitting in front Natun Bazaar opposite the American Embassy from 6:00am-9:00am in search of work for the past three days since the government imposed a “lockdown”. As some businesses had to temporarily stop operation, many day-labourers have not been able to earn enough for their families. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Sk Enamul Haq

a kitchen market

tcb trucks

People wait for TCB trucks to buy groceries at subsidised prices on Rampura’s DIT Road in the capital. As the lockdown sets in across the country, cash-strapped families are starting to feel its heat. Some say it’s even worse this time around, as they have no savings due to last year’s shutdown. This photo was taken on Tuesday. Photo: Sk Enamul Haq

ticket counters

Disinfection booths in front of the ticket counters at Barishal River Port are being used for storage about a year into their installation. With proper maintenance, these booths would be useful again this year, but a lack of foresight and care has rendered them useless. Photo: Titu Das
