  • The spirit of Fajr

    “Prayer is better than sleep” — I listened to these melodious words of the muezzin booming out of the loudspeaker of a mosque, as I wearily made my way out of Nazira Bazaar. The culinary hub, even at that odd hour of the clock, swarmed with crowds last year; it is, after all, renowned for its sehri hangouts.
  • Palatial treats

    The Palace Luxury Resort in Habiganj — on the outskirts of Sylhet — is a treasure trove of sorts. With rich flora and fauna and a wide plethora of facilities for vacationers, the 150-acre resort is a true wonderland.
  • Celebrating Awadhi cuisine

    Kurry Accent, an Indian restaurant in Gulshan-2, had recently organised Awadhi Food Fest. Food festivals by eateries, particularly by hotels, have become rather commonplace nowadays.
  • Jazz up your cubicle
