sight too common

A sight too common in any street in the capital and elsewhere in the country. A man jumps over and another squeezes through a metal road barrier set to manage traffic. A third one waits for his turn. The photo was taken yesterday at Dhanmondi Road 1 and Science Laboratory intersection. Photo: Anisur Rahman

aziz super market

A shop is packed with customers at Aziz Super Market in the capital's Shahbagh yesterday. With Eid just a week away, Eid shopping has started gaining momentum as customer turnout reaches its peak in the city markets. Photo: Rashed Sumon

waterlogged road

Several vehicles brave a waterlogged road in Sylhet city to reach their destinations. Heavy downpour during early hours yesterday inundated a large area of the city that apparently lacks a proper storm sewer system. Pathantula area on Sunamganj Road was under knee-deep water at 2:00pm when this photo was taken. Photo: Sheikh Nasir


Some good Samaritans carry Md Nazimuddin to the other side of the street in the capital's Science Laboratory area. The day labourer was found unconscious near the Science Laboratory intersection. After regaining his senses, he said he got on a bus at Mirpur for Gulistan. Near Asad Gate, a person sitting next to him offered him a drink. Soon after drinking that, he felt dizzy. So, he decided to get off at Science Laboratory. But while getting down, he lost his senses and fell on the street. All of his money was also stolen. City dwellers continue to fall victim to mugging gangs known as Oggyan party who use sedatives in edibles to trap commuters. With Eid approaching, the muggers are on the prowl for potential victims. The photo was taken around 2:00pm yesterday. Photo: Anisur Rahman
