Durga Puja celebration in Dhaka, Bangladesh. All of them were captured from Dhakeshwari National Temple on Shoptomi and Oshtami except for the last 3 pictures which were shot from Ashulia on Bijoya Doshomi.
The National Committee on Protection of Oil, Gas, Mineral Resources, Power and Ports called a half-day strike on 14th September 2009 in capital Dhaka to protest the government’s recently announced gas exploration deals with international companies. It was first hartal since 2006, and also the first one after the current government came to power early this year.
I was at Paltan the entire morning, and here’s the coverage of the hartal processions, protests, more.
