Rivers of Bangladesh


Rivers of Bangladesh

Bangladesh is called the land of rivers or riverine country. The Padma, the Meghna, the Jamuna, the Brahmaputra and the Karnaphuli are the main rivers of Bangladesh. These rivers have also got their branches and sub-branches. About 700 rivers have covered all over the country like spider webs which is why Bangladesh is often known as the land of rivers. The rivers influence the life style, agriculture, commerce, trade and industry of the people of Bangladesh. Rivers are playing important role for communication and transportation. In all seasons, boats, launches and steamers move on these rivers form one area to another area. Raw materials, products of goods and men are carried form one port to another port easily at cheap cost. Rice, Jute, and other crops grow in in the river side because the rivers have made the soil fertile. Boat race (Bangla locally called: Nouka Baich) is one of the most important and traditional sports of entertainment in the rural area of Bangladesh.
Please the boat race photo and information:

Some rivers are the source of energy like Karnafuli hydro-electric projects are used to solve electricity problem. During the rainy season, when heavy rain drops and the rivers overflow their banks,it may cause flood. So some times the river causes great damage to our life and property.
