Rainy Season

Rainy Season

The rainy season changes the atmosphere of the surroundings. The temperature gets lower and the environment becomes cool. The rainfall increases the water level in the rivers and lakes so that animals can use this water for drinking. The soil soaks the rainwater which plants use to convert solar energy into nutrition.

There are six seasons in Bangladesh. They are the summer, the rainy season, the autumn, the late autumn, the winter and the spring. Of the six seasons in Bangladesh, the rainy season is the most important due to its contribution to our agriculture. It is also a very beautiful season. It comes just after the summer.

“Rainy Season,” also known as “Wet Season” in some places, is when the region’s most annual rainfall takes place. Depending on their location, tropical and subtropical areas on both sides of the equator experience rainy seasons. Usually, the rainy season continues for a month, while it may remain consistent for three to four months in some places. In the essay below, we will go through topics like – what causes a rainy season, what are the months of a rainy season, what is the importance of the rainy season, and finally, a conclusion.

During the summer the weather remains very hot. Ponds, wells, canals and lakes dry up. Trees languish for want of water. Everything waits for the refreshing touch of the rain. Then comes the rainy season with its shower of rain like a blessing. During the rainy season, the sky often remains covered with clouds most of the time. Thunderstorms are very frequent. Due to the heavy and incessant rainfalls, wells, ponds, rivers, canals, lakes, etc. become full to the brim. Low lands go under water and look like a sea.

The rainy season is very important for our agriculture. It does a lot of good to us. Farmers anxiously wait for the rain as cultivation depends on rain. Without rain the fields cannot be plowed. Much rain is necessary for growing paddy and jute. Everything becomes full of water and the scarcity of water is no longer felt.

Importance of Rainy Season

  • Rainy seasons play a significant role in a nation’s economy, especially in an agricultural-driven economy like India. The agriculture sector in India comprises around 20% of the nation’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product). It is also one of the greatest employers, employing 600 million nationwide.
  • Monsoon, therefore, is essential for the economic health of India as the harvest of produce, up to a large extent, depends on the quality of the monsoon. A good monsoon will boost the economy with good agricultural produces; otherwise, a weak monsoon could cause famine, drought, and widespread poverty.
  • Monsoon is also very important for maintaining groundwater levels as well as water levels of natural water resources. A large amount of flora and fauna and also human beings depend on the available natural water resources. The rainy season replenishes these freshwater resources supplying them with enough water to sustain the next dry season.
  • Persistent rains during monsoon also allow us to collect runoff water through various rainwater harvesting methods. Simple rainwater harvesting methods can be deployed to collect runoff water from our rooftops, streets, and gardens. The water can be collected in tanks as a backup supply in summer.

Disadvantages of Rainy Season

When it rains, all the roads, plan fields, and playgrounds become full of water and muddy. So, we get lots of problems playing daily. Without proper sunlight, everything in the house start smelling. Because of the lack of proper sunlight increases the risk of spreading infectious diseases (like viral, fungal, and bacterial diseases). In the rainy season, muddy and infected rainy water of the land gets intermingled with the main water source inside the ground, so the risk of digestive disorders also increases. There is a flood risk in the rainy season if it rains heavily.

After all, the rainy season is mostly liked by everyone. It looks green everywhere. Plants, trees, and creepers get new leaves. Flowers start blooming. We get a big opportunity to see a beautiful rainbow in the sky. Sometimes the sun goes off and sometimes comes out, so we see the hide-and-seek of the sun. Peacocks and other forest birds start dancing in full swing by spreading their wings. We enjoy the rainy season with our friends at school and home.

The importance of the rainy season outweighs its disadvantages. It is also a very pleasant season. Watching rain while sitting beside the window can turn anybody into a romantic poet. One can pass hours watching the rain falling on green trees, fields and ponds. Such beauty is beyond description. This season is vital for the growth of vegetation. Hence, we can say that the vast greenery of Bangladesh is the bounty of the rainy season.
