Photo of the day

LIFE GOES ON BETWEEN HOPE AND DESPAIR… With a child in her lap and another sleeping in a basket covered by an umbrella as a protection from sweltering heat, Jobeda sets up her shop on a road in Karwan Bazar. Every morning, the resolute mother buys vegetables from the kitchen market and sells those at the very spot along with other women. She said she has been doing this for a while to support her five-member family as her day-labourer husband’s income is not enough. She earns around Tk 400-500 a day. The photo was taken yesterday afternoon.Photo: Palash Khan

pedestrian suffering

Drainage development works continue on Manik Mia Avenue, over a part of the footpath near Mirpur Road. Though the authorities concerned left some space beside the sidewalk for pedestrian movement along with a sign directing people to do so, it has been encroached by construction materials, a concrete mixture machine and an ice-cream van. The photo was taken recently. Photo: Rashed Shumon
