The Karnaphuli is ravaged by pollution due to mindless dumping of household and industrial waste every day. If it were not a tidal river, it would have died long ago, say environmentalists. Like the Karnaphuli, many rivers across the country are in their death throes, but the authorities concerned seem to remain oblivious. Photo: Rajib Raihan
Men, including a labourer carrying a board, cross the capital’s Kazi Nazrul Islam Avenue amid an onrush of traffic. As the metro rail work from Shahbagh to Farmgate has been completed, barricades there have been removed. In the absence of barriers, people have stopped using the nearby footbridges and been crossing roads in a way that could result in tragic accidents. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Anisur Rahman
