A bitter but varied experience in the river Padma

A bitter but varied experience in the river Padma

dulalpMahmudul Hoque Khan Dulal: Only a few days back unfortunately I had the opportunity to see the launch Pinak-6 how it was going under water within a few seconds. I could not belief my eyes despite it was happening before me. I was on board of a ferry which was only a quarter km away from the place of occurrence. It was the first time in my life to witness such a tragic incident in the river Padma.This incident still haunt my mind and I could not forget it as of now. As I am a man of the other side of the river Padma I used to cross it off and on to come to Dhaka for my profession. But today I would like to narrate another strange experience which also took place first ever in my life. Last Friday I had to go to my residence at Shibchar for an emergency work. Yesterday I was coming to Dhaka and naturally I will have to cross the river Padma. But how? I boarded on the ferry Kakoli with some 200 passengers and trucks,small sized vehicles.It left the Kawrakandighat at 9am. The weather was calm but when our ferry came to the main Padma it had to go 4to 5 km of the north east side in a bid to cross the river easily. But it was ill luck would have that the ferry could not go an inch ahead due to strong current of the river Padma. Sometimes the power of the current and the power of the double engine of the ferry became equal and it stood the same place for hours. It was around 11 am when this was happening. In the meantime a ferry named Ketoki reached there and faced the same problem like ours. It also could not go ahead despite it was trying its level best. After few minutes a large ferry named Amanat Sha came there but it also could not cross the strong current. These three ferries almost at the same area stood for hours together. The two ferries fighting against the strong current almost 4 hours were able to go to the Maowa ghat. Meanwhile the passengers who abroad the ferries tried to go to the ghat by speed boats ignoring the fear of the strong current. But they were lucky as they did not have to face any strong wave during that time. At last at 2pm a rescue ship named Banglardut came to the spot and started to pushing our ferry by tightening with strong rope with ours and came around 3km. Then the rescue ferry left and we came to the bank of the padma. After getting down from the ferry I expressed my thanks to the Almighty Allah. Later on at 2-30 I boarded on a BRTC and reached Dhaka at 3-30 pm. In true sense I had a varied but strange experience in the river Padma in my life.

ভেঙে পড়ছে গ্রিসের অর্থনীতি। দুই মেয়াদে ক্ষমতায় এসেও সিপ্রাস সরকার চিত্রটা পাল্টাতে পারেনি। দিন দিন বাড়ছে বেকারত্ব। গোটা দেশটার আর্থ-সামাজিক…
