2011 - 2014
A heavy rainfall in summer always brings a lot of enjoyment for the city dwellers. In summer there are intense heat and hot winds. The scorching sun mars the efficiency of the people. They get tired very soon and like to stay indoor especially during midday. If such is the situation, a dark cloud or a shower of rain is always welcome.
Because of climate change Bangladesh experiences heavy rains, especially over the highlands. Rainfall is mandatory for our agricultural work but it also causes several barriers for us. Though rain stops after a certain time but life remains paused due to different type of problems all over the country. Water logging, disrupted connection in road network, flood, flash flood, riverbank erosion and several other problems occurred for huge water pressure in different districts. Water logging problem is severe especially in Dhaka city. Rain fed water hits coastal districts and villages. The hilly districts remain disconnected due to heavy rain. People are dying because of strong thunder in rain. Sudden rain brings lots of obstacles in day-to-day life. The most sufferers are the day labourers, garment workers. All in all the people of the street are the main sufferers of this kind of sudden rain. It hampers their daily earnings.
