The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that total 21,316 people died across Bangladesh in just a year – 2012 – while pedestrians account to 32 percent of the total casualty.
Pedestrians face disruption while walking through the footpaths in Dhaka. Many footpaths of the city, which is one of the populated cities in the world, are seen full of vendors and makeshift shops.
The other day I was waiting for a friend of mine near Malibagh intersection. I saw some hermaphrodites there who were seeking money from the pedestrians.
