A bustling Dhaka city is still to get its usual look though the city dwellers have started returning to the capital after a one-week Eid vacation.
Most of the shopping malls, business centres, schools, colleges and universities did not re-open and may take a few more days to resume activities.
The government, semi-government, and private offices, including banks and financial institutions, opened yesterday but there was a low presence of staff.
The scene was no different in the Dhaka courts as well.
There was low traffic on the unusually empty city streets. Unlike the other days, the public buses were running across the capital with a few passengers, as most of the city dwellers are still out of Dhaka.
The amusement parks were packed with visitors as a huge number of city dwellers went there with their family members to spend the holidays
