Renovation work is going on to preserve the pond on Mohanagar Natyamancha premises in the capital. Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) has recently taken an initiative to renovate the pond and its adjoining park, as part of its plan to preserve the nearly-extinct water bodies in the city. The Daily Star ran 25 reports on Dhaka's ponds between June 22 and September 18 last year revealing how these vital organs were destroyed, occupied or threatened due to unabated encroachment, dumping of waste and sheer negligence. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Amran Hossain
