Air Pollution

While travelling to Rangamati, rather than being mesmerised by spellbinding natural beauty of the hilly terrain, visitors are greeted by a large number of brick kilns set up in Rangunia upazila of Chattogram. These brick kilns are not only harmful to the environment, plumes of smoke they emit are also making the air heavy with toxins, leading to various respiratory diseases. The photo was taken in Monnar Tag area recently. Photo: Rajib Raihan

Photo of The Day: A Perfect Match

A man smiles at his reflection after finding the right tupi at a roadside shop. These caps are a must for Eid mornings and demand for the item increases significantly during Ramadan. Tupis come in various shapes, designs and prices and can be found almost anywhere in the city. The photo was taken near the south gate of Baitul Mukarram National Mosque yesterday. Palash Khan

Illegal Parking

Police impound motorbikes parked illegally on the road in front of a market in Barishal city yesterday. There is a sign overhead that says parking space for shoppers is available, but many choose to ignore that to avoid long queues or paying. In a bid to ensure smooth traffic movement in the month of Ramadan, Barishal Metropolitan Police launched the drive. The photo was taken in Girja Moholla area. Photo: Rajib Raihan
