Tomorrow is the night of the hurricane of death and destruction

Tomorrow is the night of the hurricane of death and destruction
Tomorrow is the night of the hurricane of death and destruction

Today is November 12, a terrible threat to one and a half million people of the 710 km coastline. On this night in 1970, the cyclone ‘Hurricane’ swept in from the Bay of Bengal with death and destruction, taking the lives of nearly 500,000 people along the coast. About 250,000 people went missing on that dark night of the storm, but most of them were never found. A 2.5 km velocity cyclone with a tidal wave of about 30 feet from the Bay of Bengal razed large towns in the coastal districts of Noakhali apart from Barisal division. The rising tide of the Bay of Bengal washed away millions of people in the sea, leaving them stranded in the land of no return. On November 12, 1970, almost every family in the South was hit by a hurricane that killed or went missing.
Today (Sunday) Milad and Doa Mahfil have been organized in different areas of Barisal region in memory of the victims of the ‘Hurricane’. The fury of the November 12 hurricane left only a trail of corpses and the ruins of settlements along the devastated towns for miles along the coast. The corpses of thousands of people and cattle, and its putrid stench made life miserable for the survivors. The survivors had no clothes, no food in their stomachs. There was no place to hang heads. As a result, the life of the survivors becomes more and more difficult.
The silvery Urmimala hugging the head of the Sunil Dheu is the Bay of Bengal on the world map. Like other seas of the world, Bay of Bengal is our inseparable part as the companion of all the pleasures of nature. The coastal people of Bangladesh have repeatedly had to pay an extreme price to experience the existence of the wonderful form of the Bay of Bengal with nature.
Another terrible night of his is the midnight of November 12, 1970. The horror that struck most of the 710 km coastline that night is still rare in the world. The horror of the night of November 12, 1970 is still haunting the elders of the coast. Therefore, people of all ages who are still bereft of relatives are remembering the fateful November 12 with great suffering.
Even then, the people of the coast who survived one after another from the fury of nature, are surviving in these towns by fighting. But those memories of the 70s are still haunting those who are still alive. Thousands of families did not even find the bodies of loved ones who were victims of the ferocious hurricane that night. The entire coastal town of the country was turned into complete ruins.
Therefore, when November comes, the people of the entire coastal area are in extreme fear. On the night of November 15, 2007, another hurricane-like cyclone ‘Sidor’ came from the Bay of Bengal with a huge tidal wave and rushed at a speed of about two and a half kilometers and devastated Barisal division and the adjacent large towns.
However, half a million volunteers of the Red Crescent’s ‘Cyclone Prevention Programme-CPP’, formed in the light of the brutal experience of cyclones and hurricanes, on that day warned the coastal residents in time and evacuated them to safe places including cyclone shelters. But Sidor’s fury and damage was as terrible as a hurricane.
Most of the depressions formed in the Bay of Bengal frequently strike the coast in the form of cyclones. Even today there is no accurate calculation of how many people have lost their lives in the coastal region in this Rudra Leela of nature. Similarly, the extent of loss of wealth is also immense. These natural disasters are repeatedly upsetting the economy of the entire country including the coast. As a result of the development of science, it is possible to determine the cause of the origin of the cyclone and its course, but the control is still beyond the ability of humans.
However, due to timely warning, the number of casualties has been reduced considerably. Apart from this, due to the construction of sustainable infrastructure, it is possible to reduce the loss of resources to some extent, but the coastal agriculture system, including the southern region, is still dependent on nature. And that nature is repeatedly threatening the economy of the agrarian coast. As a result, hunger and poverty do not leave the people of the south coast.
Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the oppressed public leader Maulana Abdul Hamid Khan Bhasani rushed to the cyclone-affected area in the south and stood by the side of the endangered people immediately after the devastation of the night of the cyclone on November 12, 1970. The two leaders participated in the relief and rescue operations with party leaders and workers.
After Pakistan’s most underdeveloped and impoverished coastal region was once again threatened by Hurricane Rudra Rosh, the wails of relatives emanated from the grotesque ruins. The stench of rotting corpses caused an extreme humanitarian disaster in the entire coastal township. The air in most of the coastal areas was heavy with sighs due to the lack of water, food and shelter. All that remained was the roar of the sea and the procession of corpses of men and cattle.
