I have received your letter. You have wanted to know from me about the rainy season of Bangladesh. Now, I am writing about it.
The season is formed with two months called Ashar and Shrabon. The southeast monsoon blows over Bangladesh during this time. The farmers of Bangladesh depend on rain ultimately. If rain falls enough then the farmers grow bumper crops. Beside these, there are some disadvantages in rainy season. Excessive rainfall causes flood, which suffers us. The road becomes muddy and slippery. Passerby falls on the road and get pain.
