Where is the Banijjo?

After spending two and a half hours commuting 6.5 kilometres, from my home to the office, to write this editorial thanks to the Dhaka International Trade Fair 2018, I have to ask how this fair is helping trade. The more time we spend in traffic, the less time we spend working. There is no way around it. Contrary to what most university professors say, heading out early is not the solution. People have other responsibilities and if moving from point A to B means doing something halfway through or not doing it at all, a celebration of trade turns into the cause for the lack of it. Oh and at this rate, we're getting fewer hours of sleep which is the leading cause of depression. Maybe it's time to genuinely start thinking about decentralising.
