Belonging, Old Dhaka

Puran Dhaka, or Old Dhaka, was a rather unlikely subject, it has always existed all around me since I live there. It was like trying to find the unseen within my everyday routine. Old Dhaka had made me appreciate properly cooked greasy food, the sleaziest of slang and it is where I had come to rediscover the same small town pulse of holding on to things rather than letting go.

I spent my childhood in Comilla, a small district town urrounded by mostly rural settings and steep with old customs and a dated lifestyle. These years had made me not just appreciate but rather feel at home with relations which emboldened from the duration of time spent and bordered on tradition more than trend. But through the frames, my Old Dhaka started to divulge unseen lives and throw back at me more agonising questions of assimilation, and even worse, deletion.
