Bangladesh Thursday Doors

Thursday Doors

Some doors from Bangladesh. The first picture comes from Kutupalong Refugee Camp. About 650,000 Muslim Rohingya fled from NW Myanmar to escape persecution over the past few months. This camp is currently the biggest in the world. Conditions are squalid. The Rohingya construct their shelters with plastic sheeting and bamboo. This is where I have been working for the past two months.

Outside the camp, in Ukhiya, the doors are made from metal for security.

This is a door shop in the bazar. The design is reminiscent of Mughal Art in the 17th Century in India.

A testament to corrugated tin sheeting.

This is intriguing. What does the sign say? Does anyone read Chittagongi? Or it might be Bangla?
