Pandemic in Focus

Unseen Dhaka (in COVID-19 Pandemic)

Nazmul Hassan Shanji | Dhaka, Bangladesh

Farmgate bus stop, one of the busiest bus stop in Dhaka city

Due to the novel coronavirus attack in Bangladesh, the whole country was facing months long lockdown to prevent the COVID-19 pandemic. Public transports, offices, educational institutes, markets almost everything. was closed or in full restriction to operate. The busiest streets, public gathering places, public transport zone, monuments were empty. People stayed at their home and only went outside for emergency purposes. No office, no school, no gathering, no games so many no made this city so empty. This situation took the city people back to the old time and old memories. It felt like haunted sometimes, sometimes an unknown city to us. Streets were empty of chaos, joy, sorrow, a complete mess sometimes. This empty city also showed us the real beauty of its own but in a mute tone. Despite that, it also created hunger, poverty for day to day earning people, lower middle class and middle class people. This was the documentation some of those states of affairs of Dhaka city which has rarely seen before by the city dwellers.
