New Bank Notes....

Vendors display fresh bank notes for 'sale' in Gulistan, Dhaka ahead of Eid. The demand for small bills of mint-fresh currency is on a high during the festival, for distribution among the poor, and to younger family members as 'salami' (an auspicious token). The smaller notes can be exchanged for a rate of an additional Tk 30 per 1000. Photo: Amran Hossain

Prayer Cap...

A boy looks at his reflection in the mirror with a new prayer cap on, in front of the Baitul Mukarram National Mosque in Dhaka. These caps, or 'tupi', are an integral part of men's festive attire during Eid, and their sales are naturally boosted with Eid-ul Fitr just around the corner. The photo was taken yesterday.

Risky...

A college student, while doing the same, balances himself on a car stuck in traffic at the same spot. A footbridge is yards away but hundreds of pedestrians cross the busy road this way every day, putting their lives in danger. Photo: Prabir Das
