Eid shopping

Eid shopping is surely fun, but can also be exhausting for children as it takes a while for guardians to make their final choices. This little boy fell asleep in the lap of a family member, who also decided to sit down and catch a breath during shopping at a market yesterday. Photo: Prabir Das

Vehicles are stuck in long tailbacks on both lanes of the road in the city’s Science Laboratory intersection area around 1:00pm yesterday. Rush of Eid shoppers in nearby markets caused the tailbacks which stretched from near Kalabagan bus stop to Nilkhet. The roads remained gridlocked throughout the day, leaving commuters to suffer long delays. Photo: Amran Hossain
