Monsoon arrives with relief for sweat-soaked citizens from the torrid heat, triggered by abnormally high humidity in Bangladesh.

The news of monsoon probably carries different implications—from the ecstasy of children enjoying their summer vacation to the promise of relief it brings for the citizens to the chance of resurgence of viruses as the cloud plays hide-and-seek.

On the bank of River Karnaphuli, you will often feel clouds wrapping around you, leaving you mesmerised and cold, as if you have just stepped inside a refrigerator.

Such display of beauty of nature comes as a relief to the citizens in their mundane existence. This also gives photographers chance to take snaps of clouds and rivers and playful children on river banks.
