Autumn white fields of Dhaka

What is it that makes the month of October so different from the rest of the year? The sky wears a deep blue colour with specks of white clouds. And as you roam the country in this season—you will surely notice white seas of Kans Grass (Kashful) covering newly formed lands, shoal and the river banks.

What is it that makes the month of October so different from the rest of the year? The sky wears a deep blue colour with specks of white clouds. And as you roam the country in this season—you will surely notice white seas of Kans Grass (Kashful) covering newly formed lands, shoal and the river banks.

In the concrete jungle of Dhaka, finding fields of Kashful would not have been possible had there not been large-scale filling of low lying lands in the outskirts of the city.

You can spot massive Kashful fields in the Uttara third phase, Bashundhara, Aftabnagar and many other places.

Watch the video below to catch a glimpse of the delightful white Kashful field swaying in the autumn breeze.
