an elderly man

An elderly man sleeping precariously at the foot of a pillar of the Khilgaon flyover in the capital’s Shahjanpur early yesterday. With the winter setting in, people, particularly children and the elderly, from low-income families find it more difficult to live under the open sky as the temperature falls at night. Many cannot afford to buy warm clothes either. Photo: Anisur Rahman

badly damage

This road in Pratapnagar union of Satkhira’s Assasuni upazila has been badly damaged for about six months since Cyclone Amphan hit the area in May, causing hardships for local people. A large area of the union is still submerged due to entry of water through some breaches in the Kopotakkho and Kholpetua river embankments. Photo: Dipankar Roy

catching a shoal fish

This boy is ecstatic after catching a Shoal fish with his bare hands. Low-lying areas in Savar’s Amin Bazar has been left with fish that failed to move on with the current as floodwater receded, and many including him are getting down and dirty in the mud to catch fish. This catch is not just a good source of protein for the boy, the sense of satisfaction from stealthily catching the wiggly fish is also unparalleled. This photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Palash Khan
