Speakers in the meeting said, if people want to survive on earth, one of our tasks at this moment is to focus on protecting the environment. At that time, the poet Dipendra Bhattacharya said, 60 years ago the nature of Srimangal was such that it was dark during the day due to the dense forest. To go to Victoria High School from Chaumuhani, one had to pass through the jungle. Once a part of Srimangal glittered like a diamond in the white sand. That is why the area is named Bali Hira. Which is now known as Balishira. He said, Srimangal’s Hail Haor was extended up to the side of the then Dhaka-Sylhet-present Moulvibazar-Dhaka road. Due to high population, the haor is filling up and now it is moving several kilometers away. Many bills have been filled. Where houses are constantly being built. There was a thick forest all along the banks of Srimangal which is now gone.

Dr. Haripad Roy said in his speech that even 30 years ago it was raining in Lauachhara forest. It was cold when we passed through the forest. But today that is no longer the case. If we want to survive, we need to be environmentally conscious.

In the speech of the chief guest, Upazila Nirbahi Officer Ali Rajib Mahmud Mithun said that the natural history of Srimangal that he heard from Sir Dwipend Bhattacharya should be said that after the next 30/40 years, the Lauachhara that is now there, the Kashban that is next to BTRI. Then it will be in densely populated areas. He said, we can prevent such fate with collective efforts. And if we don’t, maybe nature will do its survival by exterminating humans. At this time, he wished to plant 500 tree saplings in Srimangal upazila this month.
