18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel

The waterbody is called 'Haor' in Bengali where a vast area remains underwater for a certain period of the year. At the time it becomes a tourist attraction where large boats are available to have a tour around. But on the other side people of that area struggle every day to meet their daily needs. Fishing is one of the main ways to earn. The guy was fishing with a small boat while we were crossing him in an engine boat. For me, it reflects nature as well as the hardship of their life.
