After the Aila
More than five months have passed since the Cyclone Aila struck Bangladesh affecting more than 3.4 million people in 15 coastal districts. It was a deadly scene with the tidal waves rising thirteen feet high, accompanied by heavy showers. In addition, the winds were blowing at 100 kilometers per hour. All of this gave anyone hardly a chance to move fast to escape. An estimated 200 people were dead and over 1,100 more who have gone missing. People lost their homes and all their sources of income and livelihood. More than 100,000 families in Khulna and Satkheera districts of Bangladesh are surviving with severe shortage of food and water. Most of the land is still submerged under the water. There is little chance of regaining their lands and rebuilding their homes. It seems quite impossible for the humanitarian situation to improve. Debobroto Chakraborty reports for Panos Radio South Asia from Bangladesh.
