Airport Road

A city father who left his mark

Thank you mayor Annisul Huq for showing us what a city father could do if he had the vision, capability and resolve to improve a city. Sad that you died too early and too suddenly. Tomorrow will be a year since you left us, while on the path to make your dream come true.

Haatibaji!

Once upon a time city people have to go to the zoo or out into the jungle to see elephants. But now, people can find elephants, most of them in a sorry state, on many city streets as they are used for collecting money from the commuters. Take for example, people commuting through the Airport Road are seen panicking, when their vehicles were barred by an elephant, creating havoc on the road near Kuril flyover in Dhaka.
