My Favourite Season
Bangladesh is called the land of six seasons. It has a temperate climate because of its physical location. Though the climate of Bangladesh is mainly sub-tropical monsoon, ie warm and humid; Bangla calendar year is traditionally divided into six seasons: Grisma (summer) Barsa (rainy), Sarat (autumn), Hemanta (late autumn), Shhit (winter) and Basanta (spring) (summer), Each season comprises two months, but some seasons flow into other seasons, while others from. are short. Actually, ‘Bangladesh has three distinct seasons: the pre-monsoon hot season from March through May, rainy monsoon season which lasts from June through October, dry winter season from November through February. However, March may also be considered as the spring season, and the period from mid-October through mitch mid-November may be called the autumn. Choosing a favorite season would be difficult because they are all special to me. They each have something to offer and are unique in every way. Among these varieties of the season, I like the rainy season for its beauty, blessings, and nature to purify the environment.
The rainy season (barsa) traditionally spreads over Asadh and Shraban (mid-June to mid-August). However, the rainy season may start from the end of Baishakh and last up to the beginning of Kartik (mid-May to late-October). During the rainy season, the southwest monsoon winds bring plenty of rainfall (70 to 85 percent of the annual total) and occasionally lasting for days without end without any break. Most of the floodplains of the country remain covered during this period. In other places, like the central Parts of Bangladesh, it lasts for about 3 to 4 months. In rural areas, boat navigation becomes a common mode of transport during this season.
Plants, half-dead with the summer heat, receive a new lease of life under cool rains and Bangladesh becomes green. Farmers are busy for harvesting Jute, in the flood-free areas, and/or shallowly flooded (0 to 30 cm depth) areas for preparing paddy seedbeds.
Barsha is also important for the fishing community of Bangladesh. Hilsha fish is available in plenty during this season. The covered floodplains become a large habitat for a wide variety of aquatic flora and fauna. At this time plenty of safe to eat herbs grow everywhere, as does the national flower Shapla.
This is the season for Keya, Kadarn, Kamini, Jul, Gandharaj, and other fragrant flowers, as well as fruits like Guava, Pineapple, and Pomelo. Nature gets a fresh outlook and a new life.
But the devastating effect of floods every year is irritating and pathetic. Floods cause heavy damages to our life. Houses are destroyed, cattle are washed away and many people become homeless or shelterless. The whole country went underwater.
I like drizzling, soft rain. I love to watch rain beside the window and love to be wet in rain on, the rooftop. I enjoy the fresh, clean roads and greets and environment. I think In this way God washes away the dirt and purifies the world.
