Brishti (Bangla. rain)

As reported in international media the monsun of this year in the South Asian Northern region has been the worst in two decades. 18 million people are reported to have been forced to leave their homes. The lack of good sanitary conditions, drinking water and food are now even worse than usual.

In Dhaka it has been raining for the past month or so. The pictures above were taken when driving to the office last week. But today the sun is shining and the streets are slowly drying up. Lets hope the rains will stop for a couple of days also in the rest of the region.
