THE CYCLONE AMPHEN ON 21ST MAY 2020 TOOK THE SAME 283 YEARS OLD ROOT TO DIVASTATE KOLKATA
The Amphen cyclone reminded the 283 years old memory. On Wednesday the 20st May’2020 the cyclone named Amphen could not mercilessly destroy Kolkata like 1737 year’s cyclone indeed but according to the source the Amphen cyclone which invaded Kolkata on Wednesday has the close similarity with the rout of the cyclone had taken in the year 1737. In the year of 1737 there was no help of radar or man made satellite even there was no existence of meteorological depart in India. Hence there is no scope to get the original rout of 1737 cyclone . But in the year of 1996 in the journal of meteorological depart named Mousam weather research fellow Mr A.K. Senshrma wrote a published a research paper . In that the assumed rout of the 1737 cyclone stated by him is that the cyclone formed under the Sagardeep and having smashed entire Kolkata and central region of Westbengal it had gone over to Bnagladesh ( that time India). Wednesday’s cyclone Amphan’s rout was very much similar to that. From various historical sources it has been derived that entire Kolkata was destroyed by that cyclone completely. Due to the raise of water level at 40 ft in Ganges several ships and water vessels got badly damaged. History research fellow Ranjan Chakaraborty in his research paper had the detailed descriptional analysis about this cyclone. In “Gentlemans’ ” daily of England that time’s detailed report had been published. This report also had been published in the research paper of that time’s famous geologist Bilham’s research. There has been many different opinion that 1737 cyclone was whether really a cyclone or result of an earth quack. Many define the both reasons. Many scientists raised the questions that 1737 cyclone was due to depression in sea or an earth quack. But in that particular night of 1737 there is no any actual proof of earth quack in the official documents in old records. So many of the scientists presume that the reasons of the 1737 cyclone was the only cause of disaster. Their logic is that the exceptional rise of water can happen only by the severe earth quack but there is no any statement made in the contemporary records or documents.
IN PARADEEP THE CYCLONIC EFFECT
The rise of sea wave level touched the height of 2 storied building. Big fishing boats are undulating in the sea like a leaf in the water . As if it is the reminder of 20 years back memory . When in 1999 the terrible cyclone hit the city of Paradeep in Odisha. The people who experienced 1999 cyclone in Paradeep were in terrible fear this time also. This time it is only the tail whip of the Amphen cyclone . But the dweller of Paradeep got dried throat out of the effect of tail slash of the cyclone . After 20 years India moved far ahead but Paradeep people realizes how long one can fight against the super power of nature. This time they could atleast store sufficient the drinking water. But 20 years back suffered people remember that they did not get food and water consecutively three days. Clothes were soaked in rain water and it had been squeezed to release water to drink.
