In this critical moment of Bangladesh, we need lots of colors beside just red and green. We need yellow for joy, happiness, intellect, and energy. We need a bright sunshine that yellow represents, to overcome the darkness of our politics. We need genuine people who can come forward with determination, and encouragement that orange represents. This photograph was taken in the dockyard of Keranigonj, located on the other side of the river Buriganga.
