Empty Dhaka Even More Empty

There are no crowds anywhere like before in Dhaka. There is no shopping crowd in the market before Eid. There is no bus stand, train station, or people rushing home to the launch dock. This Eid is completely different.

There is no traffic jam in Dhaka, no mechanical noise, no overcrowding of people on the roads. Noise and air pollution have been reduced due to less movement of vehicles.

This time, the cover is more empty. In the last two months, the number of ordinary people was limited, except for working people. These hardworking people have also left home to stay with their families on Eid-ul-Adha. As a result, the empty capital is becoming more empty.

In previous years, there was a crowd of homebound people for weeks, but this time it was the other way around. However, on the last day, the number of people returning home has decreased on the highways. People are leaving the city capital Dhaka and returning to the village.

Dhaka is the capital and the largest city of Bangladesh. It is the ninth-largest, and the sixth-most densely populated city in the world, with a population of 21,006,000 people in the Greater Dhaka Area.

Overflowing crowds of people returning home for Eid have been seen at various bus stands in Dhaka (Mohakhali, Gabtali, Gulistan and Sayedabad), Sadarghat launch terminal. As a result, the busy roads of the capital are getting empty.

This Friday morning at Farmgate, it was seen that the crowd of passengers to get on the Chirchena bus did not have that scene. Hundreds of people are standing, trying to get on the bus as soon as they see a bus coming, trying to get on the bus as the bus is already full of passengers.

Empty condition can also be seen at Shahbagh intersection. At that time, several bus helpers were seen shouting “this is Mirpur, Asadgate, Science Laboratory, Kalabagan, Kalyanpur, Gabtali,” and shouting at the passengers.

This time Thursday was the last working day of the employees as they got three days off before Eid. Besides, many have taken leave for a few days even after Eid. So this time Dhaka has become more empty than other times.
