Gaibanda district is connected with three rivers Ghagot, Brahmaputra and Teesta. Every day the water level of these rivers is increasing and has crossed the terrible level reached during the '88 flood. 20 villages have been inundated with flood water affecting 2 lac people. They take shelter in the highland. Getting water for drinking and cooking becomes almost impossible. They have to depend on dry food. In some remote areas people do not get any help, like boat for transfer to a safe shelter, from any one. Gaibandha, Bangladesh. August 10 2007.  by- Quddus Alam, Gaibandha
