Let me share with you an easy (yet temporary) way to get some peace and respite from life in Dhaka.
The birds that once ruled the skies of our city have given up their cheerful chirping to the honks and beeps of smoking cars on the roads. Furthermore and I don't remember the source of this “news”, apparently it doesn't matter how many trees we plant around the world – we're still headed for doomsday a.k.a environmental catastrophes. Add to that the stress of living up to expectations pointed towards you from every direction in life.
What do? Climb on a roof/go to your verandah, take out your earphones, put them on, and just zone out. Even if it is for a few seconds before your mom calls you out, witnessing the haphazard headlights (or a grey wall in my case) play with some nice music might just be the break you need.
