Bullock cart race in Jhenaidah: A jovial effort to revitalize the decayed heritage
With the introduction of modern technologies, Bullock carts, like many other distinguished heritages of Bangladesh, are on the verge of disappearance. In the course of time, the age-old transportation of rural Bangladesh has lost its efficacy to the modern speedy vehicles.

Some eight bullock carts from Jhenaidah, Jessore, Chuadanga and Magura have participated in the race which began in the morning in front of hundreds of visitors. The game came to an end in the evening with one Ruhuzzel from Betai village winning the first place. The winner was awarded a 21-inch colour television. Jhenaidah Superintendent of police Mizanur Rahman attended the program as the chief guest.
