Buriganga River is the synonym of a dumping ground. Severe pollution has turned this once vibrant river into the biggest drain of Bangladesh.
Experts at the Department of Environment classified this river "biologically dead", as the water contains no dissolved oxygen and is therefore totally devoid of aquatic life.

Bangladeshi farmers spend hours in the water harvesting water lilies and loading them on to the boats. Water lilies could be found in almost everywhere in Bangladesh.
The long stalks of the plant are used to cook vegetable curry in the country. This is the national flower of riverine Bangladesh.

Shubho Probarona Purnima, the second largest festival of the Buddhist community, is celebrated across the country today with traditional religious festivity.
Also known as Ashwini Purnima, the festival marks conclusion of the three-month long seclusion of the monks inside their monasteries for self-edification and atonement of their defilement.
The festival follows a month-long preaching of sermons by the Buddhist monk for the welfare of every beings and whole humankind through yellow robes offering ceremony that begins today.
The day also celebrates another event in the life of Buddha. According to legend, Buddha once clipped some strands of hair from his head and said that if he was qualified to attain supreme wisdom and enlightenment, the hairs would not fall down but go up instead, which they did.
To mark this event, Buddhists ignited sky lantern made of coloured paper as a symbol of lighting up the sky which is the chief attraction of the festival.

When you can't control what's happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what's happening. That's where all your power resides ❤

The average traffic speed in Dhaka is around 7 kmph (4 mph). However, according to a @WorldBank report, the number was 21 kmph (13 mph) just 10 years ago.
This ever growing megacity of 18 million people suffers from major infrastructural undercapacity. Even the trains are often overwhelmed by passengers, thereby some choose to travel on the roof to make it on board.
