[This farmer was sitting in the wheat field, probably taking a break. I didn’t ask for his permission to take a shot (I rarely take permission for shots), he didn’t mind (this is normal for Bangladesh, nobody minds for a picture). The sun was directly up (a bad time to shoot any picture) on the head and I couldn’t control the background (as you can see a bad composition of wheat crops in and out of the frame (this is hate so much, I prefer neat and clean frame). The coloured version is equally good, you need to understand one thing, to get a wonderful black and white, 1st you need either a wonderful colour shot or a very bad one :)
Just a note, farmers of Bangladesh are truly hard working people. Their level of intensive hard work can’t be understood through writings, you need to be in their shoes to feel it. A man or woman turns very old and wrinkly within few years in this profession. I have seen them working in the field regardless of weather. The 1st time I heard American/Australian farmers uses plane to dust their crops, I couldn’t compute it in my brain against our farmers. 60% of our farmers don’t get enough food for the family whole year long and some even can’t afford to have dinner.
However, even they are poor; they are very nice and hospitable. If you ask for a glass of water, they will bring it and often with something extra to go with the water. 1st time white people arrived in ships in our land hundreds of years back, the king thought they are very poor looking at their short dressed women thinking they couldn’t afford long dresses to cover their bodies. So the King sent expensive muslin to fill their ships and granted them permission to do commerce without taxes. Now in present days, without the help of foreign aid, we can’t make our national budget. But the culture that still thrives in our life still preserved some habits that indicate once this land was truly filled with riches and happiness.]

Bangladesh is a just a small country in Asia that much people know of, but it has some of the world’s largest and most amazing buildings and places. For example, Bangladesh has one of the largest coastal mangrove forests in the world. Bangladesh is located in Southern Asia, bordering the Bay of Bengal, between Burma and India. It has a small area of 56, 977 sq. Mi (147,570 sq. Km). In the world map it is found 24 00 N and 90 00 E. It is slightly smaller than Iowa. Bangladesh is mostly filled small alluvial plain and hilly in the southeast. The main seasons in Bangladesh are winter (Nov-Feb), summer (Mar-Jun), and monsoon (Jul-Oct). The major cities in Bangladesh are Chittagong, Khulna, Rajshahi, and Dhaka. Some of the major rivers are Padma, Meghna, Jamuna, Brahmaputra, Madhumati, Surma and Kushiara. The natural hazards in Bangladesh are mainly droughts and cyclones which happen a lot in the monsoon season.
The largest producing sector of economy. Agricultural holdings in Bangladesh are generally small. Rice, Jute, Sugarcane, Potato.over 80% of Bangladesh's workforce is rural, yet the vast majority are extremely poor, illiterate and politically marginalized.
These farmers live in harsh and degrading conditions, earning a pittance working for landlords. Their situation is worsened through an absence of political and social awareness and a lack of capacity to defend their rights. As a result of this they are often exploited and oppressed.
Women face an even more difficult situation due to the persistence of conservative religious structures that serve to oppress women, and LRC works to increase women's awareness and rights and campaigns to eliminate the discrepancy between treatment of women and men.
Both War on Want and LRC believe literacy is a catalyst for the empowerment of the rural labourers and small farmers. LRC's literacy programme and rights training workshops provide workers with the means to organise themselves and to improve their educational and practical skills, both of which will equip them to better demand that their rights to be respected.
