I have started exploring Bashundhara (the housing project, not the Mall!) and am getting to like parts of it. For those who don't know, it is a large suburb on the Northeastern edge of Dhaka. Much of this land has been filled in with sand from river beds. The outer reaches of this area are beautiful. There is controversy surrounding the manner in which land was acquired for this project.

Here are some pictures.

Kaash flowers bloom in the eastern edges of the tract.

Boy at Aamdia village on the southeastern part of Bashundhara.

Fisherman returning from morning's work.

Sentry post.

Boatman at Northern edge of Bashundhara, to take people to Khilkhet.

Twin sons of a Bashundhara employee.

Looking East towards Kathaldia village (more on Kathaldia - an island - later.)
