A young girl shows off her catch. She carries a poloi on her other hand. Polob Bawa brings people from all walks of life together on the occasion of one of the the biggest festivals of the district. While the beel once teemed with fish, last year's yield was not satisfactory. This year, though, almost everyone managed to catch something. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Sheikh Nasir

Known as “Polob Bawa”, the festival sees even Bangladeshi expats from Sylhet returning to the country to join. Armed with polois (a local fishing tool), fishing poles and bamboos, everyone attempts to catch a fish and take it home to complete the celebrations. Photo: Sheikh Nasir
