kalurghat bridge in chattogram

A serious accident is just a matter of time on the run-down Kalurghat Bridge in Chattogram, constructed in the British era.

mountains of plastic waste

Not a drop of water remains in this canal beside the capital’s Demra Staff Quarter Road. Instead, the area is filled to the brim with mountains of plastic waste.
