তোমাকে চাই

খুব চেয়েছিলাম -তুমি আসবে, 

উত্তপ্ত ওই ভূমিতে শীতলতা আনবে।
মনে প্রাণে চেয়েছি তোমায় ,
রাঙ্গাবে হৃদয় বৃষ্টির ফোঁটায়।
যদি আমি পারতাম –
কয়েক পশলা বৃষ্টি চেরাপুঞ্জি থেকে ধার নিতে,
রাজস্থানের তপ্ত ভূমি কে সিক্ত করতে,
কিংবা অগ্নিসিক্ত আমাজনকে উদ্ধার করতে,

তাহলে তোমার কাছে ভিক্ষে কি চাইতাম ?
বিশ্বাস করো, তোমার ওপর অগাধ আস্থা ছিল।
তাই আমার এই সারা দেহ -মন জুড়ে ছিল

শুধু ভালোবাসা- তোমার প্রতি।
হৃদয় গভীরে রেখেছিলাম -এক ভালোবাসার খনি।

যদি আমি পারতাম পাহাড়ের গা থেকে
ধ্বসে পড়া পাথরগুলো দিয়ে
সুন্দর করে কম্বল বানাতে,
আছড়ে দিতাম আগুন এর লেলিহান শিখাতে,
মেরে ফেলতাম অগ্নিদেব এর অহংকারকে।
একটাই শুধু দাবি ছিল তোমার কাছে।

বলেছিলাম -আগুনের লেলিহান শিখার অবসান ঘটাতে।
আমাজানের প্রাণী-উদ্ভিদদের জীবন নেওয়াতে মেতেছে
যে অগ্নিদেব ,আশা করেছিলাম তুমি যাবে মহিষাসুরমর্দিনী হয়ে,
তার প্রাণ নিতে কিংবা তার কিছুটা তেজ
তুমি তোমার মেঘের পিঠে চাপিয়ে
নিয়ে যাবে সুমেরু-কুমেরুর মতো ঠান্ডা দেশে।
আশ্বাস দেবে আমাজানের প্রাণীদের।

এই কঠিন পরিস্থিতিতে কী করে পথ হারালে,

পথ হারিয়ে নেমে এলে কলকাতাতে?

যাও বৃষ্টি, যাও – আমাজনের জঙ্গলে,

তোমার দক্ষতার পরিচয় যেন মেলে-

খবরের কাগজে একদম সকালে,

প্রতিক্ষায় থাকবো আমরা সক্কলে।

Prayer for Amazon


Rain, Rain!
Come to Amazon.
You can save all of us,
Save the earth, save our lungs.
Save our forests and animals.
Come in form of ‘cats and dogs’.
You can understand the pain,
Tolerated by creatures and man
Who are trying a lot to help them.
But all are going in vain.
Fire have become desperate.
Rain, you only can separate,
Fire from the Forest.
It is all of our request.
Thank you for reading. Let us make a beautiful world together. God bless.

We are the reflection of Nature

A huge storm or a huge flood occurs somewhere in the world. A cool breeze blows gently somewhere. Somewhere, warm weather prevails around us. Somewhere, an earth-quake destroys some zones. Can we blame Nature for these negative actions? We can’t but we should make such arrangements so that next time earth-quake, flood and storm would not destroy our areas.

And we are the reflection of Nature. Some souls kill, some souls maintain peace, some souls protest against violence, some souls are neutral, some souls are very kind. Can we blame a soul for its negative action? No, we can’t. But we should make such arrangements so that next time, no soul can do negative action. For this only, punishment exists and it has a great value.

Thank you for reading. Let us make a beautiful world together. God bless.

Amazon Forest- Lungs of our Planet

In this article the following things will be covered :

  1. Where Amazon Forest is located?
  2. Description of geographical parameters
  3. Why it is called Lungs of our Planet?
  4. The climate of Amazon-forest.
  5. Why it is called Rain-forest.
  6. Reason for the forest fire.
  7. How will this forest fire impact on the environment?
  8. What are the necessary actions?

Location of Amazon Forest

  • Countries of South America are : Brazil,Peru,Colombia,Venezuela,Ecuador,Bolivia,Guyana,Suriname,French Guiana.
  • The majority of the forest i.e 60% is situated in Brazil.
  • 13% of the forest is situated in Peru.
  • 10% of the forest is situated in Colombia.
  • The balance of 17% is situated in the rest of the countries.

Geographical Parameters

  • Area: 5500000 square km.
  • No. of trees: 390 billion
  • No. of species: 16,000
  • Age: 55 million years
  • Dust which enhances fertilization: 56% comes from the Sahara Desert
  • Dust contains phosphorus which enhances plant growth.
  • Age of human life in the Amazon area: 11200 years

The specialty at Amazon Forest

  • There are more than 1300 species of birds, 430 numbers of species of mammals, 380 numbers of species of reptiles and more than 400 numbers of species of amphibians.
  • River Amazon is the largest by discharge volume of water in the world.

Why is it called Lungs of Our Planet

  • The function of Lungs in the human body is to take oxygen from the environment and to circulate it to the bloodstream.
  • The function of the Amazon forest is to supply oxygen and to circulate it to the environment. The carbon-di-oxide, toxins are absorbed by this forest.
  • The area of this forest is too large that it can supply half of the total requirement of oxygen in the world. This is the reason, it is called Lungs of our Planet.

The climate of the Amazon Forest

  • It is located near the Equator.
  • Very hot climate with high humidity.
  • Average temperature is 27 Degree Celsius.
  • Season: one season exists i.e Monsoon
  • Months for maximum rain: December to March
  • Rainfall from December to March: 60 to 180 inches
  • Rainfall during other months: 30 to 100 inches

Why is it called Rain-Forest

  • The distance between the Amazon River and the Amazon Forest is 137 km.
  • The drainage portion of the Amazon river is known as the Amazon Basin.
  • The area of the Amazon Basin is 63,00,000 square Km.
  • Most of the basin is covered by Amazon Forest is known as Amazonia.
  • The Atlantic Ocean provides a moist climate to the Amazon Basin.
  • Due to the large basin, humid climate and tropical location, air near the ground becomes hot and rises. It forms clouds. When it reaches the condensation points, rain occurs. Due to heavy rainfall, it is known as Amazon Rain-forest.

Reason of the forest fire

  • Deforestation.
  • Construction of Trans-Amazonian Highway.
  • Construction of Roads within the forest.
  • Severe drought experienced by the forest in 2005 and 2010.
  • Temperature rise.
  • The number of rainfall has been decreased.
  • Stems of the trees have become dry.

How will this forest fire impact on the environment?

  • The amount of oxygen is decreasing gradually.
  • The efficiency of the lungs of the environment is decreasing.
  • The amount of carbon dioxide is increasing in the environment.
  • One day, when the lungs will not be able to work properly, the environment will suffer from cancer.

What are the necessary actions after controlling the situation.

  • No more development should be done by human beings in the Amazon forest.
  • Let the forest be in its way.
  • People should help the forest to grow and develop again.
  • People in the forest should move somewhere else after planting a lot of trees.
  • A lot of trees should be planted in other areas across the world.

Is it Forest Fire or Bonfire at Amazon forest?

We call the Amazon Fire incident as a Forest Fire. God will say it as Bonfire. Man snatches the space of Forest. Forest never snatches the space of human beings.

If a plant grows below our outdoor unit of Air conditioning machine, we cut it immediately to clean the space. Can Forest kill us when we occupy their space?

We call it Forest Fire so that we can hide our faults. Have we noticed the reason which causes the Forest Fire? When we kill a goat and eat the meat, do you think that butcher is only responsible? We and butcher both are equally responsible for taking the life of the goat.

Human beings have occupied Forest’s space, have cut a lot of trees, have created roads within the Forest. The amount of heat has been increased. The number of rainfalls has been decreased. Some people cut the trees or create fire in some areas so that they can dig the land. They think that they will get goldmines after digging the land. These are the reasons which compel nature to create Forest Fire. These people never try to find the reason behind the Forest Fire and treat these types of incidents as natural disasters.

Let us take care of our Nature which is our savior.
