"I work as a security guard but I’m off duty right now to cut grass for my boss’s deer. I get 5,000 taka ($65) a month for security and an extra 1,000 taka to cut the grass. I’ve been in Dhaka for 8 years and it’s tough to raise 3 sons on this but the struggle is for them. I want them to study hard for a better future so they don’t have the life that I had. My time is over, everything is over, life is over but all that matters is that they excel in life. That will be my happiness."
Living Stone, the story about the hard working community of Jaflong, on the northeastern part of Bangladesh. It was once known for its lush green hills, rolling tea gardens, and a mosaic of stones and rocks. Now Jaflong is shrinking; its bright blue skies are covered with thick smoke and dust. The crystal clear water of the Piyain River, which originates in the Himalayas, is now dying a slow death.
Just 56 kilometers away from Sylhet city, Jaflong is located on the foot of the beautiful Meghalaya Hills on the Indo-Bangla border. During monsoon the strong currents of the river wash down precious rocks and pebbles from the Indian hills into Jaflong. Every day at the crack of dawn, hundreds of little black and grey boats descend into the river. Laborers of all ages, clamor through the river, buckets and spades in hand they collect stones.

sorry but children younger than her in the middle east get blown up by drones purely because of their proximity to suspected terrorists, i don’t really care about a dutch teenager getting arrested for sending a “joke” threatening tweet to an airline while claiming to be a member of al qaeda because she thought her obvious positions of privilege would protect her from any and all consequences
