shemai (vermicelli)

With Eid-ul-Fitr coming up, many factories in and around the city have gone into overdrive to produce the amount of “shemai (vermicelli)” needed during the festival. In almost every household across the country, vermicelli is made as a special dessert. For years, this dish has been a staple for big occasions. The photo was taken in Char Khalpar area of the capital’s Kamrangirchar. PHOTO: AMRAN HOSSAIN

street shop

Most of the people at this street shop in the capital’s Baitul Mukarram Mosque area are seen without face masks. Although a mobile court has fined various shopping malls for not complying with hygiene rules and social distancing, many people, mostly customers, are still not maintaining any of those.

the poor drainage system

Sandbags provide a walkway for people as the premises of Bangladesh Forest Industries Development Corporation in Chattogram remains flooded, thanks to the poor drainage system of the city. It doesn’t even have to rain for this area to be in such a sorry state. Photo: Rajib Raihan
