illegal slum

At that time, a chase and counter-chase took place between the NCC workers and the slum dwellers, injuring two people. The NCC says the 20-year-old slum hindered the construction work. Around 80 percent of the project has been completed. Photo: Star

public sufferings

Pedestrians can use neither a footpath nor a road in the capital's Malibagh area. The earth dug up for drainage works has been left on the footpath, which made the road muddy, multiplying public sufferings during the monsoon. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Amran Hossain


The materials used by street hawkers have been kept on the median of a road, which may cause accident anytime if those fall onto the road. Such malpractice has become a common phenomenon but the authorities apparently are not taking actions. The photo was taken in the capital's Fakirapool recently. Photo: Palash Khan

joy of catching fish

Due to the last couple of days' incessant rain, many areas in Fatullah of Narayanganj went under water. Streets were inundated, while roadside water bodies bloated up. But on the brighter side, the residents had the joy of catching fish as the excessive water resulted in fish gliding through the overflowing water and entering the ditches. Photo: Prabir Das
