A crowd of people buying daily essentials from a TCB truck near the Jatiya Press Club in the capital. While many are already suffering due to the soaring costs of the essentials, the price of edible oil has also gone up recently, from Tk 160 per litre to Tk 168. The photo was taken yesterday.

SHIVERING NIGHTS...With a plastic sheet laid out on the footpath, a man rests against an electric pole, trying to keep himself warm with a shawl on the capital’s Minto Road yesterday night. As another cold wave hit the country, street dwellers continue to suffer, especially after sundown, because they don’t have enough warm clothes.
A demarcation pillar of the Turag right in the middle of a park near Botanical Garden in the capital’s Mirpur area. The park was built by a resort and entertainment centre, occupying the river’s land, and the BIWTA later set up the pillar. The photo was taken a couple of days ago.
