A visit to the sundarbans

I had an opportunity to visit the sundarbans three months ago. It was in the month of February. This month is neither too hot nor too cold. There is very moderate weather in this month. The sky remains clear and bright. The weather is charming.

We, the second year students of Bl College. Khulna undertook the journey. Five young teachers also joined with us. Among the teachers two female teachers namely Mona Lisa
Khan and moushumi farhana were also present with us. All the teachers were very enthusiastic, energetic, active and enterprising. They all extended their whole hearted co operation in our venture. They guided and advised us the whole time of our visit. Their active supervision helped us to make our programmer a success.

Our friends’ nazrul and aminul took their auto camera. One of our teachers is a good cook. He along with our bearers helped in cooking. We hired a launch and started our journey from Khulna. There were all arrangements for cooking khichuri hilsha fish. We had sweetmeat, fruits, eggs, breads with us for our breakfast. We were going though the lake and river in the sundarban areas. It was really very attractive to see the banks on both sides. Now sundarbans has been declared a world heritage site. It is the 52nd world heritage sight in the world it has got special attention as a mangrove forest. The sundarbans is an attractive tourist spot. Many foreigners like to see its natural beauty. For them it’s a beautiful place to visit.

In the forest kotka is the most attractive place. We got down from the lunch. The fishermen were catching fishes in the lake. The bawalees were collecting woods. We went inside the forest. But our teachers forbade us to go too deep into the forest. We could see some foot prints of the famous royal Bengal tighers and some spotted deer. many snakes feared us.

                                 At noon we finished our lunch with khichory and hilsha. In the evening, we started our return journey and reached Khulna at 10 o clock at night. We had a very enjoyable visit to the sundarbans. It is an unforgettable event for me. I shall remember the visit for ever.
