Spring is here. Or is it?
I could have written and published a research paper in the traffic jam en route Ekushey Boi Mela last week. Thanks to what seems like an open heart surgery on the roads of Dhaka, pollution beats its own records every day. We don't know if people wear face masks for the pollution or because of the virus outbreak; it's good that we do, though. The weather reports suggest a chance of rain. If we can actually call it "rain" is another thing to worry about. Big events, national and cultural, are lined up for the next few weeks. More occasions, more people, more of whatever happens in life. Looking forward? Only if the cloud of dust allows to.
Summer should be fine. I predict something hot.
