Those who don't own any
land are hired as daily workers and their income does
not always allow them to survive : there is no field
work during the dry season.
And when the rainy season brings water, it also increases
the risk of disease propagation, and the level of hygien,
already low, become worse.
A too violent monsoon floods the fields and wastes
the harvests. Villages are flooded and houses are destroyed.
With no place to stay (they don't own the land where
they have a house), many poor villagers who have lost
everything try to find a job in big cities like Calcutta
