Bangladesh is a land of rivers. Many rivers flowed over this country. Some of them are big and some are small. All the rivers fall into the Bay of Bengal.
The principal rivers of Bangladesh are the Padma, the Meghna, the Jamuna, the Brahamaputra, the Dhaleswari and the Karnafuli. Besides, there are many small rivers like the Buriganga, the Sitalakhya, the Gomati, the Tista, the Atral, the Karotoa, the Mohananda, the Madhumati and many others. They have tributaries as well.
The rivers are of great help to us. Our agriculture depends on the rivers. The rivers supply water and make the land fertile by depositing silt. Thus they help to produce paddy, jute, wheat and many other crop. The rivers also help our irrigation.
Our rivers are a great source of wealth. The rivers abound in fishes. Fish is an important food of our country. Many people earn their livelihood by catching fish in the rivers.
Our rivers are important means for transport too. Boats, launches, steamers ply through them in all seasons. They carry passengers and goods from one place to another. These rivers also help our trade and commerce.
The rivers have great influence on the life of people in many ways. The people of Bangladesh love the rivers, and its music. The poets have composed many beautiful poems about rivers.
Sometimes the rivers grow wild. Sometimes they destroy our crop, houses and cattle’s by over flood. But even then the rivers of Bangladesh are the source of our existence and prosperity.
