In the mid-70s or 80s in Dhaka, Rampura had been considered a focal point of cultural amalgamation for the people living in the town. Rampura is still the center for cultural diversity that accommodates people coming from all walks of life irrespective of class, creed, economic background or identity. It, to date, offers the most inclusive neighborhood to people; both those new to Dhaka and long-term residents of Dhaka.
The TV center
Let us turn our clock back 30 years. Bangladesh Television during the 90s had been the only medium of showbiz entertainment. Many of us spent our childhood watching ‘The Arabian Nights of Alif Laila’, ‘Aj Robibar’, ‘Ityadi’, ‘Mati o Manush’, or the movies in the early afternoon on black and white TVs on BTV. The boom of media technology happened due to the action plan by BTV. The TV channel from our childhood left a mark on our hearts. And when talking about Rampura, it is impossible to not mention the TV center. It is located at the base of the Rampura Bridge, and the locals mostly refer to it as ‘TV center’ till today.
From early morning, people rush off on buses, private cars or Lagunas in search of their livelihood. Badda, Malibag, Gulshan, Moghbazar, Tejgaon, Banasree, and Link Road crossovers make them the nearest locations. Rampura is the center point for all these commercially important places. The commute becomes easier as all these places are linked to Rampura through Hatirjheel – a lakefront transportation medium in the heart of Dhaka for minimizing traffic congestion. There are also plenty of modes of public transportation to help people move around.
