The Bangladeshi High Commission, in New Delhi, has a problem at hand.

The Bangladeshi High Commission, located in New Delhi’s swish diplomatic area of Chanakyapuri, has a problem at hand. And it has to do with its neighbour—Sanskriti School—that’s just across the road, where the children of bureaucrats and the well-connected study. Every afternoon, the road between the school and the high commission is clogged with vehicles that come to pick up the kids as these are allowed to be parked on either side of the road. Staff at the High Commission finds itself virtually locked inside the complex with a sea of vehicles outside blocking the roads. Even visitors to the High Commission have a tough time negotiating their way into the building as the carriageway on the High Commission side is blocked for traffic for the ‘convenience’ of those coming to pick up the schoolchildren. A little bird told us that the High Commission has taken up this matter with the authorities concerned several times but without any luck.
