Jars and water cans filled with water are being carried by pull carts across Babubazar bridge on the Buriganga river. Hundreds of such jars are brought to the capital from Keraniganj every morning. Even though the source of the water is often questionable, people drink the water ignoring the risks of contracting waterborne diseases. The photo was taken last week. Photo: Anisur Rahman
Rows of shops are being constructed illegally ahead of the tourist season on Kuakata beach in Patuakhali. The view on the wide-open beach gets ruined by these shops. Moreover, these shops are a major source of litter that diminish the joy of going to the beach. The photo was taken last week. Photo: Anisur Rahman
