The city is beset with a lot of problems. Almost all the problems are man-made.
The problems in the city are causing a great inconvenience to our life.
Failure of electricity is a regular problem in our city life. Load shedding causes a great suffering. Mosquito menace, shortage of water supply, regular traffic jams and digging roads are also very common problems. In some areas supply of gas also becomes inadequate. Mugging is another problem that makes our life insecure.
Dhaka is an over-populated city. This overpopulation creates other problems like environmental pollution and want of accommodation. Water pollution and mostly air pollution make our lives uncomfortable. Sound pollution is also a great problem in our city life. Constant noise is causing health hazards like that of polluted water and air.
As a result, rain waters cannot be removed rapidly. If there is a heavy rainfall, water-logging occurs causing a great inconvenience to public life. Many points of the roads, footpaths are illegally occupied by vendors, shopkeepers, hawkers etc. These are common problems. Another problem is our insecure, the roads are not good condition, daily necessaries are expensive and house rent is very high.
In the developed countries, city life is very disciplined and more comfortable than ours in many respects. As people are fond of city life, our problems should be solved to make our life easy and worth-living. We all have to aware about this.
