Aman seedlings being planted in a hurry and at full swing in Kalikabati village of Khulna’s Dacope upazila yesterday. Farmers had been worried that Aman yield would be poor this year due to a lack of rain for at least half the monsoon season. However, when rains began a couple of days ago, they didn’t waste any time and began planting as many seedlings as possible. They even hired extra help for them to do so.

An out-of-order traffic light in the capital’s Gulistan. Almost all the traffic lights in the area are non-functional. Even though a lot of money is spent on upgrading the traffic system, including signal lights, traffic is still controlled manually in the country. Meanwhile, the signals remain unused and ultimately stop working. The photo was taken yesterday afternoon. PHOTO: ANISUR RAHMAN
