Tormooj (Watermelons)

The heat is on. Watermelons are in season.

It's a sweet antidote to the heat.


Boats coming into Dhaka are loaded with melons.


Unloading from the lower deck...


...and loading into a boat...


Boys who helped unload show their reward.


This boy had to swim ashore with his one.


Man taking melons home to village.


Melons on display after rain.


A more attractive display.


Another way to show off.

I like your picture story ! This is very nice. Do you have a flickr account? I think you should put up some of these pictures over there and tag them. Just a thought

Hi Mir,

Thank you very much for your kind words. I looked at Flickr couple of months ago, found it very slow. I know that others from Bd use it - wonder if they are really patient, or I am doing something wrong? Will try again soon.

Hi Rajputro,

Thanks very much!
