Crab Catching at Wrong Time

In winter, mother crabs in abundance clamber over roots and through mud to reach saltwater edge of Karnaphuli river to hatch their eggs and face the threat of falling into local fishermen’s clutches. Taking this opportunity to make a brisk business, locals pile up bamboo-made crab traps in Shah Amanat Bridge area of Chattogram for sale. The snap was taken on Thursday.     —Rabin Chowdhury
