Our small country is! a wonderful green land of natural beauty. In this country of six seasons, there are many unseen places of interest. All of which may not come to the fore or we may not even notice this beauty. Some beauty remains behind the eyes of the people. One of such beauties is the variety of forms of the Haoranchal of Bengal.
Kuakata is the only beach in South Asia where you can enjoy both sunrise and sunset from the same spot. This beauty can also be enjoyed from the waterlogged villages of Haoranchal.
Cox's Bazar, the longest beach in the world, is surrounded by sea waves, and the villages of our haors are flooded with huge bodies of water.
During the winter, there are golden crops all over the field and in the rainy season, wherever the eye goes, there is only water and water. From the bottom of the water of the haor comes the fish that meets the lion's share of the country's demand, and by exporting the fish here, valuable foreign exchange is earned - which in a word is the liquid gold under the water.
The sun rises in the eastern sky in the morning from this water. It looks as if the sun, hidden in the water, is rising through the haor to scatter its light on the earth. The body, tired all day, plunged into the western sky in the red light of the afternoon in the same water. It's really hard to believe without seeing this amazing view of the haor with your own eyes.
In the rainy season, a village floating in the middle of a huge water haor is like an island. I think this seems to indicate the origin of the word haor - according to linguists, the word sair is derived from the word sagar, hair comes from this sair, and the corruption of the word haor is haor.
In the rainy season, small boats are the only means of transportation from one village to another. The river is also the only means of transporting goods at the lowest cost. The golden river that carries precious stones, natural coal, industrial raw materials and commodities has been formed between Dhaka and Sunamganj through this river flowing through the heart of the haor. But the people of this haor do not get any direct benefit from this golden path.
Due to the reduced navigability and depth of the river, this golden path is now a thorn in the side, the beauty of the haor and the planned river excavation is required to protect this golden river.
In these haor villages of Bengal, there is no noise of the city, toxic black smoke of cars and busyness measured by the ticking of the clock. There is the sweet breeze of the morning, the bright sunshine of the afternoon, the call of the waves, the call of the crickets, and the light of the silver moon glistening on the water at night. The people of these haors are also extraordinary. Simple, unadulterated, a simple smile in the face of hundreds of sorrows - like the trademark of Haor.
Who can play with nature? Nature that arranges its own game. Sometimes the nature of this haor becomes beautiful and wonderful, sometimes it is a terrible villain. Heavy rains, hailstorms, droughts, untimely floods and natural disasters are the constant companions of the haor. One of the crop lands in the haor is often affected by these natural disasters.
These people become jobless after being submerged in water during the rainy season.
During this time, the haor dwellers have no choice but to fish and fight with the waves to keep their homes afloat.
Every year we have to struggle to prevent breakage in the yard with bamboo, chailla (herbaceous plant) etc. They spend the rest of the time talking.
With a little attention from the government, the haors of Bengal can become a place of immense potential for tourism. Adequate facilities and government-sponsored initiatives could add a new dimension to the tourism sector. At the same time, providing alternative employment opportunities in the rainy season can change the lifestyle of the unemployed people in the haor, and increase the national revenue by using these people in the haor who have been unemployed for six months.
I am actually very proud to live in Bangladesh. I love my country so much. Bangladesh is actually so much beautiful. There are different types of biodiversity in Bangladesh.
