Thousands of millions people travelling on the roof an overcrowded train heading for Dewanganj, Jamalpur, from the city of Dhaka to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr with their families. Bangladesh is a densely populated country in the world and in that case transport system is very limited on the other hand Bangladesh is a country of festivals and celebrations. People of our country are by nature very festive. They celebrate different national, cultural or religious occasions with great enthusiasm and excitement. The image is reflecting of the excitement with great solemnity and pleasure. Peoples are living together peacefully in harmony with each other on the rooftop of a train towards their different destinations.
