The lifeblood of our nation
Never in the history of our nation has a water museum been more relevant. Considering the highly polluted state of all of our major rivers, it is of the utmost importance that people realize that protecting them should be a priority. Are they beyond saving? The museum, which has records of the water and history of several river bodies, seeks to highlight the fact that many of our rivers are, in fact, dying. Bangladesh is a riverine country and the water bodies which give life to its lands and its people must be saved before it is too late. By some estimates, it may already be too late. Studies have shown that the contamination in Buriganga, Shitalakkhya, Dhaleshwari, Turag Bongshi, and Balu is so severe that they are beyond repair, and it is impossible to treat the water to be made usable for humans. How could we have allowed such a tragedy to occur? For too long have sewage, garbage, and industrial waste been allowed to be dumped into our rivers, and too often have the polluters been granted impunity. And it is indeed a crying shame that we have failed to protect the rivers which give our country life. This speaks to a total disregard, and a general lack of self-awareness, that we have reached such a point in our country’s history. This kind of behaviour must stop and, as such, to save our rivers, the government must act urgently. We might very well already be too late as it is.
