health risks

Ignoring the repulsive smell and health risks, 30-year-old Alauddin scavenges mostly for discarded plastic goods wading chest-deep into the filthy water of the drain at Gobindpur Bazar in the capital’s Jatrabari. By the end of the day he finds 25-30 kgs of the goods and sells them to scrap dealers for around Tk 500. The photo was taken recently. Photo: Palash Khan

never to be deterred

NEVER TO BE DETERRED... Almost in his 80s, a farmer carrying the green grass he picked from his cropland to feed cattle at his home. The photo was taken yesterday in Ghatar Char village in Barishal’s Babuganj upazila. Photo: Titu Das

without safety glasses

A man works at a lathe shop in Islambagh area of Lalbagh in the capital with no safety gear whatsoever. The least that he could do was wear safety glasses to avert injuries to the eyes in case something went wrong. There is no record on how many people of such professions get injured, but incidents are not uncommon, the workers said. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Amran Hossain

oblivious to danger

Although battery-run auto-rickshaws are banned on highways, many of them continue plying the Dhaka-Tangail highway on a regular basis, posing serious risks of road accidents. The photo was taken near Savar BKSP recently. Photo: SK Enamul Haq
