REMAINS OF A HOME: Meghla (12) and Murad (6) rest inside a mosquito net as their parents are worried they will catch dengue. They haven’t been able to attend school since their home in Mirpur’s Chalantika slum burned down last week. All school supplies and uniforms were lost in the fire. The photo was taken yesterday.

fishing nets

Two fishermen double-check the weight of fishing nets, as a trader loads them up on a scale. Sale of second-hand fishing nets is a common practice in Chattogram’s Fishery Ghat, where used nets are sold for Tk 4,500 to Tk 5,500 per maund, depending on their condition. Photo: Rajib Raihan
