With many school playgrounds and fields being used for fairs and events, there is hardly any place left for people to engage in games and sports. In this context, artificial turf fields are gaining popularity among Chattogram city dwellers. Over 70 such fields have been constructed in the port city over the past three years and they are rented out hourly at Tk 500 to Tk 4,000 depending on the services availed. The photo was taken in Kazir Dewri area yesterday. PHOTO: RAJIB RAIHAN
