After a ravaging year of the Covid-19 pandemic that has killed over 8,000 people so far, people in Bangladesh are trying to find a silver lining, in an attempt to return to some semblance of normalcy, by celebrating the Valentine's Day and Pohela Falgun on the same day in a rare instance on Sunday, February 14, 2020.

Wearing colourful attires and with a festive mood, people from all walks of life are thronging multiple points of Dhaka city known for their ties to the celebrations of these two days, which usually occur on February 13 and 14, respectively.

These photos were taken during the Boshonto Utsab 1427, a colourful festival celebrating the arrival of spring on the first day of Bangla month Falgun, organized by Jatiya Boshonto Utsab Udjapan Parishad at the Mukta Mancha of Suhrawardy Udyan.
