          A natural disaster is a terrible accident e.g. a great flood, a big fire or an earthquake. It usually causes great suffering and loss of a large sum of money. The casualties are injured or died. Some people are homeless and need medical care.

Often heavy rainstorms that last. For a brief time can cause a flood. But not all heavy storms are? followed by flooding. If the surrounding land is flat and can absorb the water, no flooding will occur. If, however, the land is hard and rocky, heavy rain cannot be absorbed. Where the banks are low, a river may overflow and flood adjacent lowland

          Nobody likes paying taxes. Even those who know that taxation is necessary and just are reluctant to pay taxes. It is not pleasant to see part of your monthly income taken away from you in income tax. Ignorant people think this is an injustice and make a grievance of it; so it is just as well that we should know why we are taxed, so that We can see the fairness of the system.
         Every country must have a government of some sort, or life would be impossible. The primary duties of a government are to protect the life and property of the citizens, to maintain law and order and settle dispute between citizens, in a just and orderly way through the law-courts, to defend the country from foreign foes, and to maintain the roads and highways. Besides, many governments maintain and direct education, provide hospitals for the sick; and attend to sanitation. All these great public duties need money : an army and navy have to be kept up, the police force and the judges have to be paid, schools have to be provided and teachers supported, expert health officers and sanitary engineers have to be employed. Now where is all the money needed for the public service to come from ? The question is answered by another. For whose benefits are all these service maintained ? The answer is, for the benefits of the public. It is the people as a whole, rich and poor, that benefit by security of fife and property, by the sound administration of justice, by the maintenance of roads, by the public hospital, public schools, and good sanitation. Therefore it is only right that the public, the individual citizens of the country should contribute the money needed; for the money they give comes back to them in the shape of these public benefits which all enjoy.
          So long, therefore, as we have a good and efficient government so long as our money is being used in the right way, and so long as the burden of taxation is distributed fairly, as different classes can bear it, we have no right to grumble at having to pay our share of the taxes.
