Bangladesh is called the land of rivers or the Gift Rivers. Almost 300 rivers crisscrossed the country. The outflow of water from Bangladesh is the third highest in the world next to the Amazon and Congo systems. Major rivers are Padma, Meghna, Jamuna, Brahmaputra, and Karnaphuli. It has been an inseparable part of people as they bring happiness and sorrows when it makes floods. Most of the time, it makes farmers happy making the soil fertile.
Many poems, songs, and novels are written for the rivers and their contribution. Some are known as more poetic for their flow, deeds, and countryside view. The mighty river Ganges that begins in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh enters Bangladesh from the northwest through the Rajshahi division. It meets the Brahmaputra in the center of the country northwest of Dhaka.
The Ganges and the Brahmaputra rivers take new names as they pass into Bangladesh. The Ganges takes the name of Padma while the Brahmaputra is known as Jamuna.
These great rivers and their countless tributaries have the most apparent effect on the landform — constant erosion and flooding over the alluvial plains — and change landscape. The Jamuna alone is estimated to carry 900 million tonnes of silt each year. Islands of rich silt called chars appear and disappear in riverbeds and at the mouths of the rivers almost annually. The Jamuna (Brahmaputra) and the lower Meghna are the widest rivers, with the latter expanding to around 8km.
A little long boat trip on the river or a trip by Launch / Steamer from Dhaka to Southern districts of Bangladesh is the best way to see the riverine beauty of Bangladesh. It will give you an opportunity to see the real beauty of Bangladesh as you will see beautiful countryside, working people, fishing, cultivation, crops, and cornfields.
