আবর্জনার মাঝে কি সুন্দর কাশফুল!!

কে বলেছে দাদা শহরে ধূলাবালি, যানযট আর উচু-উচু বিল্ডিং ছাড়া আর কিছু নেই? এই দেখুন... চট্টগ্রামের হালিশহর কে-ব্লকে ভান্ডারিয়ান্সের কোর্টে উচু-উচু বিল্ডিং আর আবর্জনার মাঝে কি সুন্দর কাশফুল ফুঠেছে! যুম্মার নামায শেষ করে আড্ডা দেয়ার সময় আমাদের প্রিয় বন্ধু নেয়ামুল, যাকে আমরা নেয়ামুল ডাকিনা, তার বড়-বড় চোখে ধরা পড়েছে এই ছোট-খাটো দৃশ্য, যাকিনা আমার C7 -এ মুহূর্তের মধ্যে ফ্রেইম-বন্দী হয়ে গেছে।

Yaba: So called Posh Addiction!!

Yaba, the Thai word for "crazy medicine," is a tablet form of methamphetamine. Nowadays it is the most popular addiction in metropolitan areas of Bangladesh. When it first came to Bangladesh in 1999 each pill had cost ~Tk1500. But now it's available at Tk250-400. Initially it was available in two or three special locations of Gulshan and Baridhara. But now Yaba can be delivered to home if ordered over the phone!

It is believed that Yaba has entered Bangladesh from Myanmar and Thailand. The most shocking news is, a Yaba making factory is recently discovered in Gulshan by RAB!!
Most addicts are aged between 18-30 but there are many younger and older users. Women are a major part of the total number of addicts. Many artists in the media are also addicted to it badly. As it is costly, mostly rich people go for it. As a result it has become a posh(!) drug in the city!

The temporary effects of Yaba which the addicts try to enjoy are: It stimulates body, increases …

Slack n' Speedy

This little table is located inside a tea-stall. The tea-stall is located beside a big petrol-pump. In this particular tea-stall you can find people of many categories: young, old, rich, poor and many others. This soiled table preserves the essence of many kinds of people. Some stop by here during re-fueling their vehicle, some are passers-by and some are the local ones. It doesn't get to be washed until a customer complains... You can see a blurred highway just infront of the table... and beside this highway the lifestyle is slack... This little dirty table resembles both the speedy and steady nature of human lifestyle...

Poor lifestyle.... but yet, delicious.

You will find this type of delicious foods all over Bangladesh. They are unhealthy, they are cheap but they are very tasty. This specific food item shown in the picture is called "Puri". these foods are favourite to poor people and university students. Captured it from Yusuf Bhai's Hotel where Vandarians use to hang out everyday. I took the shot at the time of load shedding. The candle represents it well I guess.
