Difficult to walk...

Ripon and his daughter Reshmi -- both intellectually challenged -- find it difficult to walk on the newly-built special footpaths in the capital due to various obstacles, including small concrete pillars and various goods kept illegally by shopkeepers, on them. On one occasion recently, Reshmi hurt her leg after it got stuck between two such pillars set up to stop bikes on a pavement. The photo was taken on Kazi Nazrul Avenue in Farmgate area recently.
