Meherjan looks more than her age because of the turmoil in her life and her continuous fight for survival. Meherjan is now alone after losing everything. As she sees the flames dancing, she remembers the sufferings of her life. River erosion and poverty caused Meherjan to live alone.
The erosion of the Jamuna gradually consumed all her property by devouring her cultivable land first and then her only shelter along with her house, trees, vegetable garden and the bamboo bush.
It is because climate change is the main reason of river erosion. So, we have to stop polluting the environment first. Then we have to dredge our rivers and make embankment to adapt to the change.
