Photo of the day

A LINGERING EID VACATION ... Although Dhaka streets seem to be returning to their full chaotic glory following a week-long Eid holiday, this long queue of locked-up rickshaws on the roadside in Tejgaon hints that not all rickshaw-pullers have come back to the megacity.

Salma, her garment worker husband and their two children were at their village home when a fire ravaged the slum on Friday night. The family returned yesterday and found that they lost almost everything to the flames. Photo: Prabir Das
