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.
