Essay on Natural Calamities

All the living creatures in the earth are the products of nature. All the things are the gifts to those living beings. So, each and every creature has equal right to use all these things. Nature loves all the creatures equally.

But, due to human activities, sometimes nature also cannot bear the activities and it shows its violent form. Those are different kinds of natural calamities or disasters. A natural calamity means a disaster caused by nature.

Human activities create a natural imbalance on the earth that causes such natural disasters. Human beings have been exploiting natural resources very badly. If we are considerate and reasonable, we can save our ecology.
