BURIGANGA BLACKENED … The Buriganga is now more of a mixture of pollutants -- chemical, household and medical wastes, sewage, dead animals, plastics and oil -- instead of the thriving river it once used to be. The intense degradation of its water quality has long been detrimental to the environment and the river ecosystem. The photo was taken from the Sadarghat launch terminal in the capital recently.
