A Dawn at Sadarghat
Shraman Jha & Sami Ashraf
We do not normally rise at dawn. And grumble when made to do so. But the rewards of an early morning trip to Dhaka's bustling Sadarghat more than made up for the upheaval in our usual, mundane routine. A boat ride out into the river, watching the hundreds of launches steaming into port and the little row boats playing hide and seek with them was reward enough. Dhaka is certainly amongst the few cities in the world to have such a vibrant river front culture. Does that tempt you into a pre-dawn adventure too ?
