Earlier this December, I went to Keranigonj dockyard. While taking its photograph, I saw these two boys in there. It was a winter afternoon, but the clothes they wore were very thin, and one was only using a small Shawl on his neck. Regardless of what their cloths display – a story of poverty, or a consequence of living in a land of political oppression; you can often find them joyful in front of camera, to tell you the true meaning of happiness, from a country name Bangladesh.
