Bangladesh : Portrait of the Present / Motion of Happiness
Young girl was fixing her mud house with colour.
She works in the tea garden and manages time for doing house chores. She is around 16/17 and got 6 month old baby. Girls get married young in the villages, it’s not very uncommon.This is the most colourful picture of my srimongal set for sure with a lovely smile that made me forget about rest of the literature I wrote on human suffering.
I was wondering through the tea garden worker’s residential areas. They have beautiful mud houses with colourful designs. I spotted this teen working on her house and she was looking sweet. Before I could take a clear shot of her, she just runaway inside the house. I don’t blame her, I was not alone as local kids were escorting me out of amusement and curiosity and whoever I was shooting or pointing my camera to, they got teased or got loudly alerted by them. Imagine me walking in the area with a bunch of curious crowds behind me and yes this is a pretty common sight for any photographer walking in the village or even town in Bangladesh. It’s impossible to walk unnoticed.
This is a part of a series from my tour to Srimangal, I will update daily between my breaks. Please check back when you can. It would be a treat for me to know what you think.
