I saw them, when I went to Kamlapur railway station to take some photographs on lifestyle. They were taking care of each other as if they were a family. Perhaps they had been staying together for long, which made them a family, or perhaps they became a family because they needed to be in one. Once I spotted them, I liked how the elder ones were laying down or sitting in their little break time from works and younger ones were taking care of them or talking with smile like their own brothers and sisters. Even though these people are really poor, they are always hospitable – like we as Bangladeshi, a story that you can see almost everywhere in Bangladesh.
