Padma Devouring

The mighty Padma has devoured a number of buildings in Bashbari and Mulfatganj of Naria in Shariatpur as river erosion has hit hard the areas. A health centre, a mosque, houses, shops and roads either got badly damaged or went into the river. Some houses are yet to be lost but at risk of being eroded and people are vacating the places with whatever they can take with them. The photos were taken on September 3. Photo: Anisur Rahman
