The heatwave in Bangladesh continues to disrupt normal life. At times the heat becomes really unbearable. The temperature hits around 40 degree Celsius in day time which is the maximum in last five years. Some occasional drizzles brought some respite but we need some prolonged showers.

Bangladesh's government has told farmers to install fans in poultry houses so their chickens can keep their cool during the heatwave.

Rifat has a hypothesis to tackle this heat. However severe the heat or cold is, he always thinks that there is still more odd weather coming. He claims that this has made him bear the temperature easier than others.

Well I don't know about that as I prefer not to stay outside longer in day time. But it becomes really unbearable when there is no breeze and aircondition and you are being baked inside four corners of a wall .
