photo of the day

With the mercury climbing to mid-30s amid high humidity, a large group of children and teenagers have found Crescent Lake behind the National Parliament building to be the perfect spot for some water-acrobatics. Meanwhile, those not willing to get their clothes wet have found a vantage point at the top of the bridge. Swimming and bathing in the lake is prohibited, but it does not appear that anyone is enforcing that. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: RASHED SHUMON
