Cyclists push hundreds of precariously packed pineapples almost five miles to sell them at a busy market.  The men make the arduous trek from farms to the Bangladeshi market, where each pineapple sells for a pittance - fetching six to eight Taka, equivalent to less than 1p in Britain.<br />
<br />
Each bicycle fits 100 pineapples, which will land farmers around 350 Taka in total, or just £3.31, at the Jalchatra Bazar in Madhupur, Bangladesh.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
