A huge pile of garbage dumped into the Surma river in Sylhet city's Kazirbazar recently. Such mindless acts, coupled with encroachment, have shrunk the river in the area, threatening the area's biodiversity. Green activists are observing The International Day of Action for Rivers today to celebrate those who work to protect rivers across the world. Photo: Sheikh Nasir
