Rickshaws of Bhasan Char
A visual diary of island life by Ro Mojibur
There are about 200 Rohingya operated rickshaws on Bhasan Char. These rickshaws vary in ownership, with some being rented and others owned outright. Their design is notably distinct: they lack convertible folding hoods and the decorations are more understated, without the hand-painted tin elements typically seen on traditional rickshaws. The construction is also a bit more…rudimentary. Additionally, they offer extended leg room, which is practical for carrying shopping and other items. All images ©Ro Mojibur.
