The summer heatwave that's making rounds around Bangladesh this season has left many parched and dried. The humidity is not making it any better as clothes are getting drenched in sweat even after sitting down under the ceiling fans.
People who are out and about were seen taking cover from the burning sun. Some even took a dip in a pool to cool off while some took to a park bench to take a siesta.
These photos taken by Dhaka Tribune's photographer Mehedi Hasan at the capital's Suhrawardy Udyan, on Monday, April 26, 2021, show a little bit of the suffering of human and animals alike.
