Buriganga is the river flowing besides Dhaka city and serving nearly 20 million people which gave the rise to Dhaka city over 400 years ago. Launches and Country Boats provide connection to other parts of the country through Sadarghat Launch Terminal.
Apart from that, the whole river bank is full of diversified life. It provides shelter and livelihood to many landless people and climate refugees who migrated here from different parts of the country with the hope of changing their fate. These people work here mostly as daily labor, hawker, boatman and washer-man and in many other professions. It also provides pleasure to the poor children who swim on it.
This river brings hope to these people but unfortunately its water is totally unusable and color became pitch black due to tremendous pollution caused by urban waste. Despite of this pollution poor people also use this water for bathing, washing cloths etc. Though government has been taking so many steps to save it, but all of them go in vain because of mismanagement and lack of effectiveness.
