The daily life of people in Mahottari has been affected by the cold wave for the past two weeks. People have been forced to stay indoors as a result of the severe cold in central, western, and southern regions of the district including the headquarters Jaleshwar.

There has been a decrease in the mobility of people in the urban and rural areas of the district including Jaleshwar due to the cold weather. Means of transportation have started running at a minimum level.

Meanwhile, traders say that the sale of warm clothes has increased rapidly in the market. However, the number of people coming to shop for other items has decreased in the market.

According to the health authorities, there has been an increase in the number of children and the elderly falling sick and seeking treatment. Doctors say that the number of patients in the district hospital has increased due to the cold.

Farmers have said that the winter crops including pulses, oilseeds, and vegetable crops have started rotting due to the cold.

To protect people from the cold, all 15 municipalities in the district have arranged for the burning of firewood in common places in the villages. Likewise, the contingent of the Nepali Army based in Jaleshwar is working to provide hot water and tea in the poor Dalit settlements.

Also, all 323 schools across the district have been closed.
