Award Winner | Photo of the Day | June 05, 2012
As I watched as the day progressed, the sun was shifting from sunny to cloudy, and these farmers coming back from putting what they have reaped earlier. The process of collecting paddy is a hard labor, especially in a country like Bangladesh, where they use hand and primitive tools, just like their ancestors. Though they were looking exhausted, but soon they can celebrate the heritage of rural Bengal, the harvesting with the new rice, and verities of traditional rice cakes.
