milon smriti stambha

The Milon Smriti Stambha in TSC area of Dhaka University is in a bad shape due to a lack of maintenance. The memorial was built to commemorate Dr Shamsul Alam Khan Milon, who was killed by thugs at the height of the anti-autocracy movement in 1990. The physician’s supreme sacrifice had transformed the movement into a mass upsurge that prompted the fall of the then autocratic regime of HM Ershad. The photo was taken yesterday.

transporting wooden boards

This is not just a truck transporting wooden boards; it very well might be a bringer of potential injuries and fatalities. The steep angle of the tied up boards, the workers sitting on top, the flimsy ropes -- all could be reasons for a terrible accident. One small slip and the men could fall off and get hit by the fast-moving vehicles on Shah Amanat Bridge in Chattogram. A board sliding off could slam into one of the many cars behind. This photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Rajib Raihan
