Valentine's Day, Dhaka

My last trip to Dhaka, Bangladesh, coincided with the Bengali equivalent of the 1st day of spring (Poila Phalgun) and Valentine's Day.

The Valentine's Day - to our utter surprise - was bring celebrated with much more gusto that whatever I had seen before. Young boys and girls were going around with roses  and most of the malls and restaurants were choc-a-bloc with boys, girls and couples - all having a good time.

We were stuck in a bad jam on the way to Polton Bazar. The poor guy was on a rickshaw, next to our car, waiting to get to his girlfriend.

The picture was taken through the dirty rear window of the car. Hence, the spotty picture.
