My experience of a storm
On 29 April, 1991 there was a terrible storm all over the southern districts of Bangladesh. the storm blew from the north-west and took the form of a cyclone just after sun set. The sky had been cloudy since morning. The weather was gloomy. Towards the evening the wind gathered force and it became violently strong after sunset. There was an awful sound all around. Showers of rain and flashes of lightning accompanied the storm and added to its violence. Houses were swept away. Trees were uprooted. The roofs of houses were blown out. It continued for eight hours and caused a great havoc to innumerable lives and property. I was astonished seeing the great havoc. I luckily escaped the fury of the storm. I must thank Allah for this lucky escape.
Agriculture in Bangladesh
Bangladesh is an agricultural country. About 80 percent of her people depend on agriculture. As Bangladesh has to support such a vast population from the products of her land it is necessary that her lands should be made to grow more crops than what they give now. It is a matter of great regret that Bangladesh is backward and underdeveloped in respect of her agriculture. Her agriculture suffers from a number of serious drawbacks such as fragmentation of land. Use of primitive tools ignorance of the modern methods of cultivation and lack of education of the farmers and so on. All these problems should be immediately solved in order to make the country self-sufficient in food. The govt. must take necessary be trained steps to give the perfect price of the crops to the farmers. The farmers should be trained in modern cultivation and provided with good seeds. Only then the agriculture in Bangladesh will get its bright result.
