Fishing in Buriganga...

A man fishes in the Buriganga in Bosila of Keraniganj yesterday. Though the residents of the area are blessed with this river, for a long time they could not enjoy fishing because the water was too polluted to sustain aquatic life. The locals said the river water got clear due to monsoon rain and relocation of tanneries from nearby Hazaribagh. Photo: Rashed Shumon

Modhu Purnima...

Two Buddhist children pray in a temple in Chittagong city's Nondon Kanon yesterday, marking Modhu Purnima, a full moon festival celebrated in Bangladesh and Thailand. On the day Buddha retreated to the wilderness of Parileyya forest to bring peace between two quarrelling factions of disciples. According to legend, a monkey and an elephant named Parileyyaka fed him during this time, the elephant bringing fruit and the monkey bringing a honeycomb. The monkey was so excited when the Buddha accepted his gift that he began leaping from tree to tree and fell to his death. However, he was immediately reborn in Tavatimsa as a result of his generosity. Photo:Prabir Das
