  • Mohammad Sohag has been selling betel leaf, cigarette and water at Gabtoli Bus Terminal in Dhaka for two decades. His sales have dropped from around Tk 2,000 a day to almost nothing as the public transportation system is shut down amid the coronavirus lockdown. Now he sells products worth Tk 200 to Tk 300 a day, and the meagre profit is not enough to run his family. He said never before had he faced such troubled days in his life. Photo: Mahmud Zaman Ovi
