Pedestrians walk on the capital's Mirpur Road braving moving traffic near Mirpur Shahi Masjid and Madrasa Complex at Gabtoli. Dhaka North City Corporation has dismantled the sidewalk there to build a drainage channel without ensuring any detour for the pedestrians while a junk trader stored a heap of junk metal on a large portion of the road. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Palash Khan


Aminul Islam walks with his innovative push cart he built to raise civic awareness. With contrasting images of two playgrounds in Bangladesh and Japan, he requests all to stop littering for a clean environment. A college teacher by profession, he says he has been running this campaign on holidays for six years on public roads and at educational institutions. The photo was taken yesterday across New Market in the capital. Photo: Palash Khan
