Perks of living in Dhaka City

Take the recent and absurd fuel price hike, for example. The country's people are focusing on and monitoring how we, the citizens of Dhaka, will handle this situation so they can follow suit. To them, we say, “Hold my Borhani.” The fuel price hike gave an extra flare to the attitude of operators of CNG-run auto-rickshaws, Uber cars, and Pathao bikes, thus rendering the daily commute undesirable. Yet, most fail to grasp the opportunities we are presented with, such as being innovative and healthy. Power walking or riding your bicycle for commute is your divine solution.
