Essay or Composition about “Winter in Bangladesh”
There are six seasons in Bangladesh. They are the summer, the rainy season, the autumn, the late autumn, the winter, and the spring. Winter comes after the late autumn. It is the coldest season. Generally, it starts in November and lasts up to February.
The weather remains very cold during the winter. It is the season of mist and fog. The sun rises late and sets early. Even when the sun rises, it is a matter of good luck to see the face of sun as it remains covered with dense fog. Mists begin to fall at night and disappear as the sun rises in the morning. The nights are longer than the days. The cold wind blows from the north. Most of the trees shed their leaves. Then they look like skeletons. Everything looks gray and lazy due to the dense fog. Everybody wears heavy clothes to ward off the cold.
It is the season for food lovers. Juice is collected from date trees. Molasses and sugar are made from it. In every household different types of cakes and special dishes are prepared in winter. Various kinds of fresh vegetables are available during the winter. Everything is fresh and tasty in this season. It is also a season for traveling. People go to different tourist spots to have vacations and picnics. In this season, the village roads remain dry. So, people go to visit their relatives in winter. An air of festivity prevails during the whole season.
It is a difficult season for the poor. For want of warm clothes, their life becomes miserable (দুর্দশাগ্রস্থ). They lit up (প্রজ্জ্বলিত করে) fire with straw and bask in the fire. In the morning people are also found sitting in the sun for warmth. Sometimes, cold waves (শৈত্য প্রবাহ) hit. Then the children and the old people suffer (কষ্ট করে) very much. Many people even die from terrible ( 5) cold.
Though winter is bare, dull, and colorless to some people, find a strange beauty in this season. The weather in winter is salubrious (স্বাস্থ্যকর). A sound sleep under heavy quilt (লেপ) in the long winter night is very enjoyable. So, I like it very much.
