Dear Sir

The word Heat wave was an unfamiliar word to the people of Bangladesh even a few years ago. But nowadays people are struggling with this issue almost every day.

Experts advise keeping water, an umbrella, a hat, etc. to overcome the heat stroke during this heat wave with the people at all times. Besides, a cooling center like a flood shelter should be set up in the city for the weak, elderly, and children.

And of course, measures need to be taken against deforestation, the main cause of heatstroke. As soon as possible, an initiative should be taken from government or private authorities to plant trees. The government now must make the countrymen interested in roof gardens, along with the planting of trees on the roadsides, river or canal banks, house yards, and fields. Water sources should be increased in different parts of the country.

We have to maintain the balance of the environment for ourselves. Otherwise, such natural calamities will keep coming. Public awareness should be created in this regard.
