It really sounds interesting! A baby girl, who was born at a cyclone shelter at Mithakhali village in Mongla upazila in Bagherhat on Saturday night, has been named ‘Bulbuli’; the full name- Bulbuli Akter Banna.

‘Bulbul’ or ‘Bulbuli’ is a common name in Bangladesh society. But the parents of the newborn baby named their child keeping similarity with the cyclone storm codenamed as ‘Bulbul’. It was crossing the region when the baby was born.

Hanufa Begum gave birth to the baby girl at ATC Government Primary School which was turned into a shelter center for providing shelter to the people of the coastal area.

Mongla Upazila Nirbahi Officer Md Rahat Mannan said Hanufa Begum, wife of Bayezid Shikdar of Mithakhali village, gave birth to the baby safely with the help of a midwife from the upazila family planning office. “Both the baby and the mother are doing well,” he said.

The cyclonic storm ‘Bulbul’ completed crossing the West Bengal-Khulna coast near the Sundarbans around 5am on Sunday.

Around 764,000 people were evacuated from seven coastal districts to shelter centers on Saturday. The districts are Baterhat, Khulna, Satkhira, Barishal, Pirojpur, Barguna and Bhola.
