once a major canal

Once a major canal, Balram Khal now flows like a trickle due to encroachment. The almost 8km waterbody runs through Sylhet sadar upazila before entering the city. It is an important canal to prevent water-logging, but the present trend suggests that it will disappear within a matter of years. The photo was taken in Kazir Bazar area where the canal meets the Surma river. Photo: Sheikh Nasir
