At the end of the day

It was late afternoon. The person in the photo is a day labourer. He has just got back from his work and was taking a bath. The river in the photo is called Surma river. It is the longest river in Bangladesh. The water in this portion of the river was polluted in many ways and had a bad odour. I asked him if he found the bad smell disturbing. He said he has got used to it as he has no other options.
