Nor’wester or, North-wester


Nor’wester is one of the natural calamities that often visit our country. Usually in the months of Baishakh and Jaistha nor’wester occurs. The nor’wester blows sometimes in a terrible form. This storm often occurs at that time when the sky is covered with black clouds and the heavy wind blows. Children find pleasure in collecting mangoes under the mango trees. Sometimes the nor’wester comes along with hail-storm. Children pick up the hail and find pleasure in it. Sometimes it causes havoc beyond description. Almost everything that comes within its sweep is destroyed or carried away. Houses and buildings are blown down, giant trees are uprooted. This causes much harm to people. Our people have to struggle against this calamity and disaster. But we cannot do much against this natural calamity. We only make up the loss when the intensity of the nor’wester is over.
