Socially distant offices, near-empty showrooms, restaurants running takeaways and the familiar tuk-tuk (yellow auto-rickshaw) were some of the sights and sounds that highlighted Day 1 of Chennai's re-opening.
The city was under a complete lockdown between June 19 and July 5, thanks to a spike in COVID-19 cases. However, the re-opening has brought with it a spate of new challenges to operations, supply chain movement, and consumer appetite, as retail outlets and restaurants begin recovery, yet again.
