#Perspective / Buying new banknotes: An Eid tradition

What’s your earliest memory of Eid as a child? Waking up, taking a bath, saying the Eid prayer, and then collecting your salami from the elders? Surely you remember the salami being in the form of new banknotes? After all these years, new taka for Eid is still a thing. To cater to this need, there is a buoyant market where new banknotes are sold, a makeshift bazaar where new takas are the commodity!

The ticket line

As the rush to get home for Eid builds up, six lives in Dhaka city collide.
