The Chars of Faridpur are a series of islands that are interconnected by rivers. During monsoon seasons (and during natural disasters that raise the water level) these islands become completely submerged. This displaces the people living on these islands. When it's not the monsoon season, boats like this can get caught in the shallow parts of the river. It's so shallow you can walk in it without getting your knees wet. When a boat gets stuck in these parts, it's necessary to push the boat by foot to deeper water.
