THE BACK HOME: BANGLADESH Bangladesh is a small country of south east Asia. It was free from Pakistan in 1971. For the liberation many people (about 30 lacks) sacrificed their lives. It has an area of about 1 lack 47 thousand 5 hundred and 70 Square kilometre. The capital city of Bangladesh is Dhaka. Almost of our country speak the Bengali language. In 1952 we gained our mother tongue. It was a glorious acquisition for us. Although Bangladesh is a small country but a large number of people lives their (about 16 core). Normally Bangladesh is independence it can be tell but actually the people of Bangladesh is not free from financial problems. Bangladeshis are very peaceful and hospitable. They love to live all together and family bonding remarkable. We are mainly Muslims but Hindus, Buddhists and Christians also live here. Bangladesh has many age old traditions. People observe different festivals on different occasions. EID-UL-FITAR, EID-UL- AZHA, Pahela Baishakh etc is the most common traditions. Naturally Bangladesh is so beautiful. Bangladesh is a River-irrigated country. The Padma, The Meghna and The Jamuna are the main big Rivers of this country. Jute, Rice, Tea, Sugarcane, fruit, Cotton etc are the main crops of the country. Sundarbans, the only mangrove forest of the world is one of them. We have the longest sea beach of 155 Kms at Cox’s Bazar. The national beast of this country is Royal Bengal Tiger. The national game of Bangladesh is Hadudu. Also cricket is internationally well recognized. The national bird is Doyel. The national flower is Shapla. The national fruit of the country is Jack-fruit. The shatgombuj Mosque, The Buddhist Bihar, Mahastangar etc are also visible place. By consideration whole side Bangladesh is so beautiful. So I feel proud for my country. I love my motherland not only because I born and brought up here but, because it its evergreen nature, beauties six season, it’s flowing rivers, its verities of birds and so on. My motherland is gifted with very fertile soil. Its fertility is maintained as rivers carry alluvium to them. So, plenty of rice, jute, sugarcane, potato, tobacco, pulse, oil, seed, vegetable, spices, tea, etc are grown here. Our seasonal fruits like is mango, jack fruit, litchi, guava, black berry, pineapple, banana, coconut, water melon etc. are great attraction to the people of home and aboard. Our six season appear to is with six different look. Each of them has an identical character. Spring is the best of them and termed as king of season. Hot and dryness of summer is sub-situated by its sweet and fleshy fruits. Coldness of winter is balanced by the date juice and different vegetables like Cauliflower, cabbage, tomato, carrot, radish, brinjal, bean etc.
In autumn the fields look like a vast sheet of gold due to the ripe paddy of golden color. The rainy season appears with a different attraction. Sometimes it’s rains for days together. The fields, canals, tanks and rivers are full of water. The nature looks like a vast sheet of silver. Moving around by country boats is of great interest in this season. Our water reservoirs are full varieties of tasty fishes.
We are fortunate that we have several world heritage sites.. Our national economy is mostly depending upon agriculture. Little development occurred here in industrial sector. Due its poor literacy rate national progress and development is very slow. Acute unemployment caused us to be drowned in corruption, violence and social crime. Even then people of different religion live here with peace and harmony. I feel very proud when the foreign visitors praise our hospitality.
