Village elders named the youngster Mahasen after he was born early on Thursday morning at a shelter in the Patuakhali coastal district, only hours before the eponymous cyclone slammed into the seafront.
“Jyuotsna Begum gave birth to the boy at Boalia Union Council cyclone shelter and villagers who were in the shelter named him Mahasen,” said Mahmud Alam, the government administrator for the area. “Our health workers later attended to her and both the boy and the mother are doing fine.”
Alam said that he had sent some new clothing and 2,000 taka (Rs 1,400) on Friday to the boy’s father Forkan Mridha after he learnt that the cyclone had partly damaged his tin and mud-built house.
