Paragraph : Natural Calamities of Bangladesh

Natural Calamities of Bangladesh

Bangladesh is called a land of natural calamities. Because she is vulnerable to different natural disasters such as floods, cyclones, drought, river erosion, storms, earthquakes and so on. Among these devastating forces of nature, flood is the most common one. Almost every year, flood visits to our country. It usually occurs in the rainy season. It has a destructive impact on our life. It causes huge damage to our country. Flood washes away our crops, domestic animals etc. It wipes out our trees, houses and so on. It causes death to a large number of people every year. However, the sufferings of the people do not vanish just after the flood. Because they have to suffer from the aftermath of flood. Many types of diseases such as cholera, dysentery, diarrhoea usually break out in an epidemic form after the flood. People also suffer from the want of pure drinking water, food, shelter etc. They have to depend on the relief and charity of other people. In fact, the sufferings of the people after the flood know no bounds.

Same paragraph collected from another book

Bangladesh is a country which experiences natural calamity almost every year. I experienced various sorts of natural calamities in my life as I am a son of this soil. Among all these calamities, the devastating flood of 1998 is still vivid in my memory. Eight districts in the south-west of Bangladesh had been inundated ruptly. The areas which are inundated had been out of flood for long sixty years. All the kacha houses were washed away by the devasting flood. Almost all the trees were uprooted. All kinds of crops were damaged totally inviting a serious famine. The people of those districts became houseless, shelterless and foodless. Though the government and some other non-government organizations extended their helping hands, many people died of starvation. There broke out diarrhoea in an epidemic form taking away many lives. As I am a resident of Patuakhali, I experienced the pathetic scene of the affected areas. Still, I shudder to reminder the devastating effect of the flood.
