Salesmen sit idle at a shop at Benarasi Palli in the capital’s Mirpur as there is no buyer turning up. Shop owners said sales of sarees have almost dried up since they opened their outlets ahead of the Eid-ul-Fitr in May after the Covid-19 lockdown. They blamed poor sales mainly on cancellation of wedding ceremonies and people’s fear of going out amid the pandemic. The photo was taken on Tuesday. Photo: Palash Khan
