Nothing could dampen the indomitable spirit of the jaywalkers in the capital! Despite installing barbed wire fence on the central reservation on Kazi Nazrul Islam Avenue, pedestrians somehow managed to remove those from a section and continue with the risky habit. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Rashed Shumon


A worker rakes out dead leaves and household waste from a pickup truck inside Suhrawardy Udyan in the capital. The pickup truck (Dhaka “Da” 4557) belongs to the Public Works Department that owns and maintains the park. A sign, inset, posted on its front reads “engaged in state and decorative works of residences of honourable ministers and the chief justice”. The photo was taken around 2:00pm on Tuesday.
