The couple of days after Eid holidays are over, in countries like Bangladesh where a large section of urban dwellers rush back to their rural roots for festivals, offices often open up to slow pace of work and a temporarily smaller workforce. For those of us stuck at work because somebody must man the ship, it can get very boring very fast, especially if work pressure is lower than usual. Here is how to make that time a bit more bearable.
Eid holidaymakers could face long tailbacks at the bottlenecks on two major highways and at the ferry terminals on the Padma river.
The government has decided that movement of vehicles carrying goods will remain suspended for 10 days before and after Eid-ul-Fitr on Dhaka-Paturia and Dhaka-Archiah highways and Paturia-Daulatdia and Aricha-Kazirhat river routes.
