Around 10 feet of the footpath along the capital's Panthakunja park has remained in this state for almost two months, and more bricks and slabs are coming apart day by day, causing further damage. Delay in the repair works would only make it more dangerous. The photo was taken on Tuesday. Photo: Anisur Rahman
Baghoir Khal used to be a rowing channel for race boats only a few years ago and draw enthusiasts from far-off places. But it is barely recognisable in its past shape now because locally influential people and sand traders have occupied it with barges. In a few more years, the canal beside the Dhaka-Mawa highway in Keraniganj might dry out and become an easy prey of land grabbers like others. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Anisur Rahman
A woman waits to sell used two litre bottles filled with water to passengers travelling on the Dhaka-Patuakhali route on launches. Traders take advantage of lack of drinking water for passengers, mostly belonging to the lower income tier. With no way of testing how safe the water is, desperate people buy each bottle for only Tk 10. The photo was taken yesterday at a launch ghat in Patuakhali. Photo: Star
