Rickshaw puller Abdul Qader stops for a moment to record a flooded portion of Nazimuddin Road in Old Dhaka yesterday around 1:00pm. Torrential rain the day before and during early hours yesterday left sections of the city under knee-deep water. Qader said he would share this clip on Facebook so anyone planning to come to this part of the city could steer clear of sufferings. Photo: Palash Khan
