A rare Phayre's leaf monkey, locally known as chosma pora honuman, on a tree in Lawacharra forest in Kamalganj upazila of Moulvibazar. This is one of around 20 of the monkeys remaining in the forest. These primates, a species of old world monkeys, have decreased in numbers due to poaching and habitat destruction. The photo was taken last week. Photo: Mintu Deshwara

Tree Fair...

A girl curiously looks at a glass bottle growing plants inside of it, just like a greenhouse does. She was visiting a 15-day long tree fair taking place at Government Alia Madrasa ground in Sylhet. The Department of Forest and Department of Agricultural Extension jointly organised the event as part of a tree plantation campaign, bringing together samples from more than 50 nurseries.

One of the attractions in the fair was an all-season wood apple tree laden with full-grown fruits. The owner asked Tk 20,000 as its selling price. The photos were taken yesterday, the sixth day of the fair. Photo: Sheikh Nasir

Traffic Week...

Following a student movement demanding discipline in the transport sector and the Traffic Week coming on its heels, there is a sudden surge in the use of helmets by motorcyclists and their pillion riders. The photo was taken near Saarc Fountain intersection in Dhaka yesterday. Photo: Prabir Das
