Chawkbazar in central Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh is a chaotic place in one of the most densely populated places on earth. Yet it is well organised. The network of streets is split into sections, each representing a certain business domain. Clothes shop is never next to the butchery and books are not sold next to machine spare parts. It's a diverse place and every shop or stall is a small world, different from any other.
