Children Playing in Rain, Bangladesh

Photograph by Jashim Salam, Your Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Environment

Children playing in seasonal rains are a great sight of monsoon and six seasons here in Bangladesh. The effect of climate change is making this rare as less or more rain is causing great disturbances around the country. Heavy rain causes floods and landslides, and makes millions homeless and takes the lives of many others. The climate should behave like normal for our future children to play like this in monsoon rains, and people must take responsibility to reduce pollution and save our world.
