traditional dinghies

When traditional dinghies are losing its appeal to the modern means of transport, the landing station at South Keraniganj shows a different scenario. Boatmen are busy renovating some dinghies whereas people keep on boarding some to go to the other side of the Buriganga river. Every day, people in their hundreds use the station to avoid a detour, saving both their time and money. The photo was taken recently. Photo: Anisur Rahman
