Six Seasons in Bangladesh

Bangladesh enjoys six seasons in a year-each distinct from the other in respect of gaiety, color and complexion.The six seasons not only shape and reshape,the landscape but also mould and influence the life-style of the people.Each of the seasons displays its own characteristics and its own unique weather.The six seasons are Summer, Rainy Season, Autumn, Late Autumn, Winter, Spring.

The Summer is characterized by sweltering heats punctuated at times by devastating nor'wester or the Kalbaishakhi with the accompaniment of thunder, lightning and hailstorm.

The Rainy season comes with its torrential rains often flooding and inundating rivers, meadows, fields and countryside. The country, as if, bathes in fresh waters when the exotic flowers bloom and rhythmic sounds of rainfall resembles a melodious symphony.In this season aFlower called "Kadam Ful" is found everywhere.

Late Autumn
During this season, the land is at its luscious best. Festivals flourish to hail the harvest, the end of the floods, the coming of the new soil and the wonder of the rivers. The country’s troubadours are everywhere, dressed in bright clothes and singing for money. By the season’s end, the air is no longer humid. Fresh scents replace the dry jute smell

In winter the earth dries and dust forms. Warm clothes are pulled out. Young people play tennis, football, cricket and golf.Fogs are covered all over the sky in the morning. Sometime it shows dense fog and the sun does not show as usual.
