The Sun finally shined yesterday in Bangladesh after 7 days incessant rainfall. The massive rainfall (a 50 years record) has waterlogged many parts of Bangladesh, wreaked havoc on agricultural crops creating millions of Taka damages, disrupted lives of millions and at least 28 people were killed in the flood that ensued.

As Sting says in one of his hit song:

Perhaps this final act was meant
To clinch a lifetime's argument
That nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could
For all those born beneath an angry star
Lest we forget how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are how fragile we are
