At first sight, the waterbody gives the impression that it is some uncared-for drainage canal flowing on the outskirts of Dhaka city instead of reflecting the reality that this is Gulshan-Banani-Baridhara Lake that snakes through the posh residential neighbourhoods of the capital.

Numerous stones and brick chips protrude from this pothole-riddled road stretching from Kadamtali to the old railway station, especially the BRTC area, in Chittagong city. Apart from damaging the suspension, this slows down vehicles, particularly rickshaws, leaving passengers vulnerable to mugging. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Star
