Thailand and the daily travail of human trafficking

en-maktoob.news.yahoo.com — A few weeks ago I came across a strange sight at Dhaka's international airport. Just behind the immigration officers' desks, several rows of men, wearing identical shirts, were sitting, or rather, squatting on th ground.

Blind Bangladeshi fisherman's disappearing home

aljazeera.com — The disappearing island of Bhola, Bangladesh's largest, is home to one and a half million people. Half of Bhola's land has been eroded away in the past 20 years.

A second chance for Myanmar’s sea gypsies

bbc.com — Paradise found In Myanmar's Mergui archipelago, all the beach brochure clichés actually apply: powdery sand, turquoise waters and forbiddingly thick, verdant jungles are in abundance.

A brand new, age-old problem

dhakatribune.com — It might be hard to come to terms with, but Bangladesh is an ageing society. The number of elderly people in the country - that is, those aged 60 and above - is growing at a faster rate than the number of people below the age of 18. We're getting old.
