Banani Road Number 11, once a luxurious pathway to the richest neighbourhood in Dhaka, has transformed into a bustling hub of consumerism. This Ramadan, it is home to overpriced iftar items, boutiques and a place for you take your romantic partners to dates-- the Arabian ones you can eat! However, the hustle and bustle is not exclusively the province of the rich. Sometimes the two worlds - of privilege and deprivation - do collide. This is the tale of one such intersection.
I don't want you to become a Muslim or become religious; what unsettles me is that there is absence of faith in your life and I really believe that faith is something that should be in everyone's life, because it is such a powerful tool that, if used properly, can help you get through the most difficult times in your life.
