completely useless

A man sleeps on a bench next to a pile of discarded bins near a local ward councillor's office in the capital's Motijheel area recently. The two Dhaka city corporations installed 6,700 such small bins at the roadside last year to keep the city clean.

public nuisance

This portion under the Mayor Hanif Flyover in the capital's Fulbaria area has turned into a makeshift stable. As the horses are fed and tended there, the air in the area gets filled with acrid smell of their urine and faeces. The place is also being used as a stand for horse-driven carriages. Though this has long been a public nuisance, the authorities concerned turn a blind eye. The photo was taken on Saturday. Photo: Palash Khan
