This picture taken from Padma River (Mawa point) during sunset time.
The river Padma is too vital for the economic well-being of the people of a big part of Bangladesh. The Padma River is the name given to the Ganga River flowing into Bangladesh from India. The once mighty Padma and its tributaries have traditionally contributed enormously in areas of communication, fishery and related activities, irrigation, groundwater availability and maintenance of the ecology and biodiversity of a vast area. But the Padma has been dying ever since its free flow from the upstream was diverted from the construction and operationalisation of the Farraka barrage in India during the seventies.
