A lion’s share of the road underneath the Bijoy Sarani-Tejgaon flyover has been taken over by low-income people, who have set up shops and shanties, keep their rickshaw vans parked here, and even rear chicken. As a result, vehicular movement on the road has become constricted. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Rashed Shumon
Abandoned vehicles at the front yard of the social welfare ministry’s Shishu Paribar, a girls’ orphanage in the capital’s Tejgaon. The vehicles, left at the mercy of nature, not only ruin the view and occupy what could be a playground for the girls, but also become an ideal breeding ground for mosquitos when rainwater accumulates inside them. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Rashed Shumon

The other side of the road is also almost occupied by parked vehicles. Inconsiderate parking is one of the avoidable causes of congestion. The photo was taken yesterday afternoon. Photo: Anisur Rahman
A boatload of winter vegetables is being taken to the capital’s Shyambazar. Even though winter has not arrived, some farmers have been blessed with an early harvest of a wide range of vegetables. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Anisur Rahman
