Piles of garbage mindlessly dumped at the edge of the Dhaka-Aricha highway near Bolyarpur in Savar by different private company vehicles. Not only does this pollute the surroundings, it also contributes to traffic jams in the area as drivers try to swerve away from the stench. The photo was taken recently.

An almost immobile tailback on the capital’s Kazi Nazrul Islam Avenue yesterday. Traffic on major thoroughfares came to a standstill as trucks carrying Awami League activists to a rally organised by the party’s Dhaka South and North city units blocked roads adjacent to the Suhrawardy Udyan.
