Rice drying fields – Bangladesh

The staple food of Bangladesh is rice. This rice comes in shape through some processing of paddy. After harvesting the paddy from the field it comes to the paddy drying zone for drying. Lots of workers both male and female work for their livelihood. The children of the workers grow up working and playing in this area.

Because of low payment of the worker their children do not get enough facilities for their living. Paddy drying is often a problem in Bangladesh due to rain and cloudy weather in summer, and fog and short day in winter. To protect paddy from this bad weather the round shaped covers are used. After completing drying it is sent to another area for further processing.
