The Role of Rivers in Bangladesh

I would like to share with the readers about the role of rivers in Bangladesh. We all know that Bangladesh is a land of rivers. She has many rivers. Some rivers are big and some rivers are small. River causes benefits with some devastate. There are some main rivers in Bangladesh. They are: the Padma, the Meghna, the Jamuna, the Karnafuly, the Buriganga, the Sitalakshya, the Dhaleswari, and the Madhumati etc.

Bangladesh is an agricultural country. The rivers help us in agriculture. The prosperity of her agriculture depends on these rives. We get many kinds of fishes from these rivers. Fish is our important wealth. Our fishermen catch a huge quantity of fish. They earn a lot of foreign exchange by exporting fish. Fish is our main item of food. Our rivers are important for communication and transport. Boats, Launches and steamers move on these rivers in all seasons. Men and goods are carried from one place to another and one port to another port.

Sometimes the rivers cause a great damage to our life and property. In rainy season they make floods. Roads, houses, fields go under water. They destroy our wealth, People suffer from untold sufferings.

The name of my village is Hoshil. It is situated near the Padma. The Padma is a very beautiful river. When I go to my village, then I take bath in the river. I swim there as much as I can.

The river-break causes a problem for the villagers. When river-break occurs then the villagers need to change their houses. They loose their lands also. If we help those helpless villagers then we can remove our poverty. So, we can see that rivers cause some problems. But rivers are very essential for an agricultural country.
