Most people experience four seasons: winter, spring, summer, and fall/autumn. However, those four don't extend to every place on earth. Because of the equatorial location of the tropics, that zone only experiences two seasons: wet and dry. Areas near the Indian Ocean, meanwhile, generally experience three seasons: winter, summer, and monsoon. For various reasons including agriculture, commerce, and cultural tradition, Bangladesh divides these three seasons into six: summer (grisma, in Bengali), monsoon (barsa), autumn (sharat), late autumn (hemanta), winter (shit), and spring (basanta).
