Charminar: The lanes and streets near Charminar and its surroundings wore a deserted look on the second day of Eid which were abuzz with people and business a few days ago. The busy market turned silent within just one day. The Charminar market remained active since the early morning of Saturday as per the convention for years here.

Some vendors did some business on the Eid day also but by the evening of Saturday, the market turned silent. Many streets in the Old City also remained calm and tranquil. A morning walker at Charminar, Sunil Agarwal said that it was rare to see the Charminar area so silent and tranquil. He said, “It was obvious that business area goes silent on such occasions. It gives all the businessmen a day or two to take rest and restart again.”

Interestingly, many prominent restaurants, hotels and eateries were also shut for the Eid; some remained closed on Sunday too. This has taken a toll on the bachelors and people from other places or states living in the city. A Bengali embroidery worker from Misriganj said that he had to struggle to get food on Eid day since many hotels were not open. He said he cannot go to the homes of local friends for three-time meal eventually he had to cook by himself at his hostel.

The sanitation workers on the other hand worked hard to get the streets cleaned and remove the litter spread around. Venkatamma, a sanitary worker said that whatever occurs around the city, she and her co-workers need to work in order to keep the city clean. She said, “Though there are shifts, but all need to come daily to maintain the sanitation and cleanliness. However, we earn gifts and praises if we work on the days of festival.”
