This night along with other Rohingyas, the woman sailed the Bay of Bengal
and reached the western shore of Shah Porir Dwip in Bangladesh. For several
hours she was waiting at the check point. She cries because the border guards
let to go the rest of the group and she stayed alone, without any friends. This
is another drama for the Rohingyas who, from the beginning of the journey
from Burma to Bangladesh, try to keep together and who are often separated
here. It is easier to survive by helping each other.
