A special delicacy for those with an acquired taste, Shutki, or dried fish, is made mainly during winter. Sent across the country and also exported abroad, shutki has become a popular source of income for those living near river banks in Chattogram. The photos were taken from Diamond Ghat area on the southern bank of the Karnaphuli recently. PHOTO: RAJIB RAIHAN

Illegal encroachment and the accumulation of silt have reduced the Belai river in Bagerhat’s Rampal upazila into a narrow channel. Locals said the river once used to be wide enough for trawlers and even larger water transport to pass through. However, now due to its shrinking and the Khulna-Mongla rail bridge (not in picture) hanging too low, no such transport can take to the water anymore. The photo was taken from the Belai bridge in the upazila recently. PHOTO: HABIBUR RAHMAN
