For close to 35 years, a few families in Khulna’s Bil Pabla area have earned a living by extracting snail meat.

Each bag gets them Tk 70, and it’s possible for a single worker to go through up to three bags a day. This photo was taken recently. Photo: Habibur Rahman
Near Baily Road’s Viqarunnisa Noon School and College campus, a manhole right down the middle of the ‘tin rastar mor’ is left uncovered.

Moreover, it’s also become quite the nuisance for vehicular movement on the busy road that leads to the school and the nearby Monowara Hospital. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Anisur Rahman
