Mumbai limped back on its feet on Monday, a day after the cremation of Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray as taxis and autorickshaws plied on the roads and markets opened up gradually.
The bustling financial hub was shut down on Saturday soon after news about the Sena supremo's demise spread.
Schools and colleges which were scheduled to reopen today after Diwali vacation will now open tomorrow.
Though Shiv Sena has not called for a bandh, Federation of Associations of Maharashtra (FAM) had asked its constituents and the trading community to observe shutdown in the state on Monday as a mark of respect to the Sena patriarch who passed away on Saturday afternoon after being critically ill for the last few days.
In a statement, FAM has appealed to its constituents to observe Shradhanjali Day today.
Similarly, jewellers across Mumbai kept their establishments closed to mourn Thackeray's death.
Meanwhile, ashes of the late leader will be handed over to Shiv Sena leaders and office bearers tomorrow. The urns containing ashes will be kept at the party offices in different parts of the state for the Shiv sainiks to pay homage to the departed leader, on November 21 and 22.
