packed train

Risks do not stop people from travelling home on the rooftop of a packed train -- their eager wait to join family members and relatives to share Eid joy makes them forget the hassles and dangers of their journey. The photo was taken at Chittagong railway station yesterday. Photo: Prabir Das, Rashed Shumon

tailback buses

With a huge rush of people and a swelling river increasing the travel time of ferries, a 3km tailback of buses with homebound passengers is created before the ghat. Photo: Prabir Das, Rashed Shumon

tannery estate in savar

This is the situation of a major thoroughfare at the tannery estate in Savar, on the outskirts of the capital. On the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha, lakhs of cattle will be sacrificed and their rawhides are supposed to end up here for primary processing. This vast estate was built for facilitating the leather industry but its present condition suggests otherwise. The photo was taken on Wednesday. Photo: Palash Khan

deserted look

One of the busiest hubs of Dhaka city, Farmgate, wears a deserted look yesterday, the last office day before the beginning of Eid-ul-Azha holidays. On any normal day, this intersection remains teeming with people and traffic throughout the day, sometimes late into the night. The photo was taken around 10:00am. Photo: Palash Khan
