Cyclones : Amphan & Yaas UPSC NOTE


  • Super Cyclonic Storm Amphan was an extremely powerful and catastrophic tropical cyclone 

  • It caused widespread damage in Eastern India, specifically in West Bengal and Odisha, and in Bangladesh, in May 2020

  • It was the strongest tropical cyclone to strike the Ganges Delta.

  • Very Severe Cyclonic Storm Yaas was a relatively strong and very damaging tropical cyclone that made landfall in Odisha and brought significant impacts to West Bengal during late May 2021

Why in News

  • After Cyclone Amphan hit West Bengal in May 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Sumita Mukhopadhyay and her son visited the Sundarbans with relief material.

  • Prof. Mukhopadhyay, a teacher at Bethune College, realized the widespread destruction required more help, leading her to connect with four women teachers from other State Government-run colleges.

  • The NGO's core mission now focuses on helping "tiger widows," women whose husbands were killed by tigers in the Sundarbans due to escalating human-tiger conflicts.

  • Aims to empower and uplift the lives of these vulnerable women through research-based programs.

  • Funding for the NGO's relief work comes from donations by members, friends, and relatives, according to Prof. Mukhopadhyay.
