Everything downstairs is soaking wet as floodwater ravages the neighbourhood in Makkahnagar area of Savar.

growers bring in guavas

Growers bring in guavas in boatloads on Bhimruli canal in Jhalakathi yesterday. The canal serves as one of the largest markets for wholesale guavas in the country. Some say the trade in the monsoon fruit has been going on at the floating market for around 200 years. These days the market attracts tourists too. Photo: Titu Das

mostly to let notices

A wall on Malibagh College Road is covered with mostly to-let notices of different colours to attract the attention of potential tenants. Many people have left the capital following the coronavirus outbreak and subsequent loss in earnings. Landlords are finding it difficult to get tenants in many neighbourhoods, including this one.
