Stagnant water at a construction site, adjacent to Willes Little Flower School in Kakrail, can add to the number of dengue cases in the capital. Experts have warned that schools and their surrounding areas must be cleaned before their reopening to reduce the risk of dengue spreading.
With sandbags, residents of Gowaldubi village in Chapainawabganj stand on the edge of an area before which acres of land stretched out not too long ago.

The ripples created by larger launches are often a reason why smaller dinghy capsize in the Buriganga river.

As is the norm for weekdays, traffic pressure bogged down the capital’s streets yesterday, long after the morning rush hour had passed. With a day to go till the weekends arrive, residents simply can’t wait to let out a collective sigh of relief away from the sound, sweat, and stillness.
