Bangladesh Authors: Must Books for Every Library Collection

We tend to gauge periods of history by the quality and nature of books written in that age. Fact and fiction are able to record the values of communities with equal power. The style, in which books are written contribute as much to the impression conveyed to readers, as the content and graphics. Many new terms are often coined for the first time in books, while others drop out from popular usage, but remain in their crypts of pages.

From Art to Life: Bangladesh Galleries

Art Galleries have become preserves of the rich, but Art cannot honor such boundaries. Art also defines communities, and remain as symbols of people long after their live presence has been extinguished. Many chimeras of the mind which impose imagined divisions between people melt in to insignificance when Art is used as an eclectic bridge. Paris and Chittagong may be continents apart, but the quaint Bangladesh city has a delicious slice of France in its Panchlaish quarter.

Music for a Cause in Bangladesh

Music for a cause can work miracles for the soul! The magical effect of lyrics on our senses is incredible enough as it is, but to spend money on a DVD which helps the poor adds so much to the value of a purchase. It certainly beats listening to pirated music on an MP3 player, never mind how much of a fashion that has become!

Towards a Golden Era for Bangladesh: Sonar Bangla!

You cannot have anything to do with Bangladesh if you think the term has something to do with sound! 'Sonar' in Bengali means 'golden', and those who love this fertile land are fond of referring to their region as 'Sonar Bangla' or 'Golden Bengal'. It does not matter, in this sense, whether you are an Indian citizen from West Bengal, or from what is now the sovereign nation of Bangladesh, the cultural and historical ties of the region are not to be denied. This area has a rich heritage of cultural and intellectual achievements over the ages.

Art Belongs to All in Bangladesh

Art is very much like Bengal, or should that be the other way around? Either way, art is one of the cultural elements that bind the people of Bangladesh with those of West Bengal and Tripura, both of which are in India. The entire land was one before the British divided it when leaving the sub-continent; the separation is of course irrelevant when it comes to art!

Why You Should Eat Food like a Bird in a Bangladeshi Home

Food unites Greater Bengal! You may divide Bengalis between the Eastern and Western parts of this region, and while the West is part of India, the Eastern bit is a country in its own right. However, this division did not exist before the 20th century, and is largely political in nature. A common culture binds the people together, and nowhere is this more evident than in the food Bengalis eat.

Bangladesh - Farming and Fertility

Bangladesh is one of the most fertile areas on Earth, yet it is often plagued by natural disasters on a scale most of us cannot even imagine. For example, Hurricane Katrina was responsible for the deaths of nearly 2,000 people, yet the devastating Bhola Cyclone of 1970 killed roughly 250 times as many in Bangladesh. Cyclones, floods and droughts bring death and disease to the people of Bangladesh, yet they also bring life by renewing the fertility of the land. The Monsoon floods that cause the country's rivers to overflow their banks spread rich and nutrient-packed soil over the low-lying islands that constitute the broad river deltas where most of Bangladesh's crops are grown. To compare, the historic floods of the river Nile in Egypt allowed farmers to build one of earth's first great civilizations, yet since the construction of the Aswan High Dam the floods have stopped and farming in the valley and delta of the Nile has become much less productive.
