Palm trees are dying

Palm trees planted only about a month ago to beautify the pavement at Karwan Bazar are dying due to neglect. The Dhaka North City Corporation evicted illegal structures from the area and cleared the pavement. But hawkers have left little room for pedestrians to walk by. The photo was taken yesterday.
