The name Cox's Bazar originated from the name of a British East India Company officer, Captain Hiram Cox, who was appointed as the Superintendent of Palonki (today's Cox's Bazar) outpost. He succeeded Warren Hastings, who became the Governor of Bengal following the British East India Company Act in 1773. Cox embarked upon the task of rehabilitation and settlement of the Arakanese refugees in the area. He rehabilitated many refugees in the area, but died in 1799 before finishing his work. To commemorate him, a market was established and named after him, called Cox's Bazar. Cox's Bazar was first established in 1854 and became a municipality in 1869.
After the Sepoy Mutiny in 1857, the British East India Company was highly criticised on humanitarian grounds, specially for its opium trade monopoly over the Indian Sub-Continent. However, after its dissolution on 1 January 1874, the company's assets, including its armed forces, were acquired by the British Crown. After this takeover, Cox's Bazar was declared a district of the Bengal Province under the British Crown.

A day labourer is a person who leads his life by the sweat of his brow. He is healthy, strong and stout.
He lives with his family in a slum and leads a subhuman life. He is usually employed in agricultural or construction work. He works from morning till evening, according to the direction of his employer. He gets up early in the morning and goes out in search of work. In the evening, he gets his wages. Then he goes to market, buys his daily necessaries and returns to his house. He has both pleasures and pains. If he earns more, he gets pleasures. When he fails to do that, he gets pains. A day labourer’s life is really till of hardship. He often works in a very bad working condition. Sometimes he is given to do risky jobs. But he is little paid for such risky and hazardous jobs. A day labourer works in extremely bad weather.
If he does not find any work, his family starves, if he falls sick, he and his family suffer most. It is true that a day labourer tenders valuable service to the society. He contributes a lot lit the development of a country. So, we should show due respect to a day labourer.

The river is surrounded by Gabura Union in Shyamnagar. About 45,000 people now live in fear of sleeping at night. It is surrounded by 26 km of earthen embankments resistant to the tidal salinity of rivers and seas. The town was formed by cultivating the Sundarbans in the early 18th century. If there was no need for embankments at first, then in the 1960s, embankments were also built in Gabura along with other coastal areas. The coastal embankments are currently under the control of the Water Development Board (Pa, U, Bo) of the Government of Bangladesh.
All the embankments have been repaired by soil every five years from the beginning. Embankment is one of the transportation routes for the locals. Most of the residents of Gabura are poor and landless. Many of the aristocrats have settled in the city. Education, health and social environment are lagging behind due to lack of adequate schools, colleges and medical services. All in all, the Sundarbans, the river and the sea have been living in harmony with the abominable Bengal.
On the one hand, earthen embankments are being destroyed by waterlogging. On the other hand, the government authorities have failed to address the issue of climate change on the coast. But cyclones named Sidr, Aila, Nargis, Fani, Bulbul and Ampan are repeatedly destroying the environment.
