heedless of the danger

Heedless of the danger, a child takes sip of a drink sitting right on the rail line in the capital’s Tejgaon Railway Station area. A few other people also can be seen on the lines nearby. Such disregard for safety often proves to be fatal. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Anisur Rahman

large concrete pipes

Large concrete pipes of storm-water drain lie right on the street near Bangladesh Bank headquarters in the capital’s Motijheel, obstructing movement of vehicles and pedestrians.

rods sticking out

The road median under the jurisdiction of Mayor Hanif flyover in the capital’s East Jatrabari has been in this state for a long time. Shopkeepers in the area said accidents often occur there when vehicles go over the unmarked median that has rods sticking out. This photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Amran Hossain


A kingfisher spotted on a tree branch beside a lake on Jahangirnagar University campus ready to pounce on fish. The bird, which has a large head, long, sharp, pointed bill, short legs, and stubby tail, usually lives near rivers and eats fish. Photo: Firoz Ahmed

dry weather

ONE MORE REASON TO WEAR A MASK... A combination of dry weather and high levels of dust coming from the metro rail’s construction leaves the capital’s Secretariat Road barely visible. If this is the scenario now, the approaching winter will most certainly make the situation worse, if steps are not taken to curb air pollution. PHOTO: PALASH KHAN
