Arial Beel: Home of Abundant Natural Resources


Arial Beel (Wetland) – a large water body of 136 square kilometers, situated south of Dhaka in between Padma and Dhaleshwari river. The beel's features change from season to season. Specially, during the winter time, it's diversity reaches a unique level. A few days back, I have been there. On my way, I stopped at a local wholesale bazaar, called Shonabari in Srinagar upazila. This is a market that wraps up by 6 AM. All the fresh local fishes in the markets are sold in time. Dear readers, these fishes are local and grown in the hands of nature; not a single one is farmed, so you can guess the look, purity and taste of these fishes. It was almost 7 AM, but heavy fog was all around and I could barely see anything. Arial beel is a huge wetland. Tens of thousands of people live on this beel's natural resources. After the monsoon is over, the region is filled with diverse fruits and crops. Famers don't use any fertilizer here because the soil is very fertile. Md. Rafique, a famous farmer of the beel, was waiting for my arrival. Finally, I reached the Arial beel. It was very interesting conversation with the prolific farmer. “What's the area of this small water body?” “Six acres.” “How many small water bodies are here in the Arial beel?” “Numerous. There are even large water bodies which have 200 acre area.” “What was the weightiest fish have you seen in the beel”, out of curiosity, I asked Rafique.
