It was my first tour to Munshiganj, I went there to visit some villages, and to get news about potato farmers. After I finished collecting news, I saw these little boys fishing, a scene that we often see in our rural Bengal, catching fish and then going back home to give fishes to their mother to cook. Yes, it is their daily life, a very common one, yet again there primitive life and determination touches me to the core.
