Small crafts compete for space on the river front with enormous freighters and other large vessels. It makes for a fascinating dynamic. I took a humble row boat out on the waters near the Sadarghat.

Launches and Country Boats provide connection to the other parts of Bangladesh, a largely riverine country. When the Mughals made Dhaka their capital, in 1610, the banks of the Buriganga were already a prime location for trade. The river was also the city's main source of drinking water. Today, the Buriganga river is afflicted by the noisome problem of pollution. The chemical waste of mills and factories, home waste, medical waste, sewage, dead animals, plastics, and oil are some of the Buriganga's pollutants. The city of Dhaka discharges about 4500 tons of solid waste every day and most of it is released into the Buriganga.[citation needed] According to the Department of the Environment (DoE), 20000 tonnes of tannery waste, including some highly toxic materials, are ...

Buriganga River Cruise in Dhaka, Bangladesh - Road Junkie Snippets [02:42]
The Buriganga river (literally ´Old´ Ganges River) is the lifeblood of Dhaka, Bangladesh. A trip to Dhaka is simply NOT complete without a visit to this special area where old meets new, massive competes with inferior & a theater of life & death is played out right before your eyes. You´ll be absolutely blown away by the coordinated circus of events that takes place in front of your eyes as you notice tiny vessels likely in use for decades (possibly even centuries) sharing the same waters with enormous monstrosities that literally plow over ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that might possibly get in the way. The locals are wonderfully cheerful as they wave to you while you gulp, sit back and try to take it all in from a small rowboat with a humble man paddling by your side.
