Small boats criss cross the river all day and serve as a cheap transportation for crossing from one river bank to the other.
Early morning sunrise over Buriganga River (Bangla: বুড়িগঙ্গা Buŗigônga "Old Ganges"). Buriganga is the life line and much happens in and around this river. It is the main river flowing beside Dhaka, capital cityof Bangladesh. With an average depth of 39 feet (12 m) its quite amazing to see the activities along the river. Unfortunately, the river is Dhaka's main outlet of sewage waste and is threatened by pollution and waste. What was mind boggling was that people were using this mucky water to drink, gargle, brush their teeth and take bath all within feets of each other! Amazing immunity system!
