We are lucky that we can enjoy six seasons in our country. The rainy season is the second of them. The Bengali months-Ashar’ and ‘Shraban’ are called the rainy season. Sometimes it begins earlier and lasts longer. Of all seasons I like the rainy season most. It is my favourite season.
The rainy season is caused by the monsoon. The south-west monsoon blows from the Bay of Bengal over Bangladesh. It brings much vapour. After that, it receives heavy rainfall. Since then rainy season occurs in Bangladesh
During the rainy season, the sky remains cloudy. Sometimes the sun is not seen. During this time it rains cats and dogs. Sometimes it rains for days together. Roads become muddy. Rivers, canals, and ponds are filled with water. They overflow their banks. Fields go underwater.
The rainy season is a blessing for our country. Bangladesh is an agricultural country and most of the crops are dependent on the rainwater. The current of rainwater makes our soi, fertile. It washes away the filth and dirt from the earth surface. It also purifies the atmosphere. Men can easily go from one place to another by boat.
The rainy season is not a blessing for us all the times. In the rainy season, the roads become muddy and slippery. No doubt, the poor suffer much. They cannot go out for work. Cattle have to suffer much. Various diseases like cholera, typhoid and dysentery break out. Sometimes there occur floods and wash away our crops and houses.
Though the rainy season has its demerits, it is also a blessing to the economy of our country. It helps nature to gain a new life. We always welcome this season and enjoy its beauty.
