- His father died when he was six years old
An 11-year-old Bangladeshi boy has to work along with her mother in order to support their family.
Nayan told his sad story to renowned photojournalist GMB Akash, who then shared it on his popular Facebook page.
Nayan's father passed away when he was only six years old. He and his mother are therefore the only ones in the family who are able to work. His siblings are too young.
He said his mother has to work every day even when he is unwell. Otherwise, they would not be able to afford their favorite dish, biryani, even during the Eid festival.
He added that he was sick for several days before returning to work. They have to ride on the train's roof to get to work because it is cheaper.
Nayan had to work to buy new clothes for his younger brother and sister for the Eid festival.
