And the primitive village on those chars is called 'Char Village. Even from a nearby city town, life in the Char area is absolutely different (simple and hard). Living in a char is equal to accepting many different challenges, including natural disasters, too far away from health care and education. The effects of climate change are bringing a lot more challenges to their lives.
