Noor Hossain Chattar

Noor Hossain Chattar, also known as Zero Point, is in dilapidated state. The prominent landmark in Gulistan -- at the heart of Dhaka’s commercial district -- bears marks of years of neglect, be it in the broken-down bricks and tiles at its base, or numerous posters plastered across it.

temporary dams

Under a project to ease waterlogging, temporary dams have been built on the canals that connect to Karnaphuli river. But these dams will stop rainwater from reaching the river quickly, making waterlogging much worse. The bellow photos shows the connecting point between Tekpara canal and the river, while the rest are of Kalabagicha. The photos were taken yesterday. Photo: Rajib Raihan
