left to ruin

The idea was a noble one -- to add much needed green to the capital's dry surface by placing these large concrete tree planters on the median. But not just the trees were uprooted, most of the planters were left to ruin also. The photo was taken on VIP Road in Naya Paltan area yesterday. Photo: Palash Khan

Celebrating winter

Dancers enthrall audience with their performance at the Nazrul Mancha of Bangla Academy. The event was organised as part of a three-day “Poush Mela”, a festival to celebrate winter, which began yesterday. Other than musical performances and cultural activities, the fair is also hosting a “Pitha Utsab” for all to enjoy the delicacies. This is the 19th such fair organised by Poush Mela Udjapon Parishad.
