In March the litchi plants blossom and the bees make hive hanging either from any branch of a litchi plant or under the canopy of any other nearby  tall plants. At the middle or end of April, litchi plants decorate them with young fruits leaving no flowers or honey for the bees.  Honey bees left the hive accordingly.

Coastal canals in Bangladesh

Coastal canals in Bangladesh: Coastal Bangladesh in the south is criss-crossed by many river tributaries and canals. The canals are recharged during high tides and becomes empty at low tides twice in a 24-hours cycle. Farmers use its water to irrigate their crop lands during high tides. Such situation happens during dry season (Oct-March). While in summer (rainy season) such canals overflow and flood the adjacent areas including people's courtyards and orchards.

Water Gypsy or River Gypsy

Water Gypsy or River Gypsy: 'Bede' or 'Beday' in bengali- nomadic or marginalized ethnic group of Bangladesh. Traditionally they used to live on fishing by hook travelling by boat in rivers. Now a days they are seen to earn their living showing 'shows' with snake, monkey and magic. They also earn as a 'lucky heather' or selling herbal medicine. They travel in groups and never stay in one place for more than a couple of months. They use to live on begging when there is no other alternatives to earn. They do not have even a piece of land; and when do not afford buying a boat, make their houses beside a highway or on the bank of a river near a locality. Photo: Gongachora, Rangpur, Bangladesh.
