Photographer's Note

I got this family in Sholoshahar Railway junction from where the students of Chittagong University (I finished my LL.B. and LL.M. from here last year) go to university by Varsity shuttle train.

i was waiting for 3rd shuttle train and walking here and there. i saw the man (the kids father) crawling out from this wagon. i made me interested. i went closer to the wagon and saw a figure laid in between two rail-lines. The kid was in fever and having temp approx 104. They came to chittagong from a northern distant place for work though they didnt have any work on the day i took this photograph. His mother was out to buy some nunrooti (bread). His father told me that many people like them came to Chittagong for work and stay in emply rail wagon at night and made it their home and kept it as long as they can. When the railway authority would need the wagon, they ousted these families. His father looked helpless as he couldnt do anything for his son. Even, he didnt know whats going on his son! Was it malaria or seasonal flu?
