Hey guys, I’m always on this sub replying to shit so I thought I’d share some news here as well..
So last year, after I graduated from high school, my parents took me to Bangladesh under the guise of a 2 month vacation; they told me after summers over, we’ll go back and you can attend university. But they lied to me, they had no such plan. They planned on moving to Bangladesh and getting me married and settled down. I just turned 19 last month. they were acting like nothing bad just happened and everything was normal; they were acting like they didn’t just uproot my life again for the third time. they’re soooo non confrontational, they’re literally acting like nothing happened.
I would ask them time and time again, when will we go back, when can I attend university, they’d say “we thought it would be better for you to stay here and find a good husband” but I DONT WANT THAT.
They’re completely ignoring me, my mothers such a special bitch; she knows the trauma I went through these p... keep reading on reddit ➡
I absolutely believe that had the partition not happened then a lot of the terrible geo political things that occurred after it would not have happened. But what people usually don’t bring up with this topic is how would this hypothetical india be able to handle this many people? Another thing to consider each of these countries by themselves is ranked in the top ten in terms of population.
I am curious to know different perspectives on how Bangladesh has managed to completely turn its economy around. Even two decades ago, Bangladesh was one of the poorest countries in the world, and the poorest country in South Asia. In 2000, Bangladesh's per capita income was lower than Nepal. In 2010, Bangladesh's per capita income was half of India and Pakistan's, and same size of Nepal.
According to latest reports by IMF:
Bangladesh's per capita income is $2100 (300% growth) in ten years. It's per capita income is same as India's (who was ahead by $700 in 2010), 1.5x the size of Pakistan (who was ahead by $650 in 2010), and double the size of Nepal's.
If IMF and WB's predictions are taken into account, by 2030, Bangladesh's per capita will be hovering around $4500, while India's will be around $3500 (if grows at 7%, but unlikely), and Pakistan's a little lower than $3000.
The only country in the world that ever managed to generate such growth is China. It's per capita income i... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hello, 20F Bengali here. Born and brought up in the middleeast. I've never been to Bangladesh but I haven't been deprived of the Bengali culture either. Recently, due to personal issues, I've been thinking about moving to Bangladesh on my own. It's funny cause I wouldn't have ever fathomed that idea, ever. In the end, it's my own motherland that's going to help me out. I really am not aware of the scene in BD, the living conditions, the neighborhoods, things to avoid, all that jazz. So I was hoping to get some insight from you guys, if you have any advice, insights, any precautions I need to take or if you think that this is a bad idea all together please please let me know, I would really appreciate it and it would help me out a ton. Here are some things I need to know about-
Now hear me out, South Asia has one of the most interesting pieces of history that not a lot of people know about. Early civilisations, Mughal Empire, the British rule, formation of India, and my personal favourite, the genocide of Bangladesh in 1971 (weird calling a genocide your favourite but I mean the story). The last one took place less than 50 years ago and is the last known genocide that no one knows about! Nixon and Kissinger were involved in covering up the whole thing because they were allies with pakistan during the cold war!
Anyway you get the gist. You’ve covered so much of american, european and east asian history and I think this would be a good series to educate a lot of people as well as something different
EDIT: I would also like to include Africa and all the asian countries you haven’t covered as well
Think about this.
He was a great leader who lead us to an independent country. But post liberation war Mujib was corrupt. His death was necessary. We'd be like North Korea today where we would've worshiped him like North Koreans worship the Kim Jong family.
You can see my point point with Sheikh Hasina. She's basically fulfilling Mujib's vision. Some people fanboys him so much. Literally making him a Demi God of some sorts.
I can't seem to run it without a vpn. Onek cheshta krsi, but vpn chara hoy na
Is there any sub or discord server for programmers / developers/ engineers of BD(if there is please let me know)?
If there is none why don't we make one?
It would be awesome to learn together and getting help from deshi people!
Edit:Created one! please visit r/BdProgrammers
I mean visit some of the larger cities and tourist attractions, not every single place in the country.
EDIT: Without using translation services.
You can't have a different opinion. Sometime Political people knocks in message to know my location :p you know who they are. People gets triggered easily.

I'm writing about this super cool guy who is just like me (but y'know, super cool, awesome, strong, smooth talker, you get the gist) and after attaining god like superpowers accidentally commits a genocide that would be considered the 15th largest genocide by death toll, did I write myself too far into a hole?
INFO: this kid is like 14 years old but i'm sure he can easily recover from this, just wondering what reddit thinks about my concept.
I just finished reading the book called "Bangladesh, the legacy of blood", and I have to say, the history after the independence is very interesting. Sheikh Mujib's assassination and the whole plot behind it, the freedom fighters getting divided into smaller factions, Khandakar Moshtaque's takeover, the Jail Masacre, Khaled Mosharrof's failed coup d'etat attempt, how Ziaur Rahman took advantage of all these tensions, and quickly rose to power and eventually became the president, the sepoy rebellions, Ziaur Rahman's assassination and so on. This period was very violent and scary, considering all those innocent officers who died because of the sepoy rebellions, the honest and hardworking leaders who died. Everyone who is a Bangali should read about these periods...
I get it this country isn't the land of opportunities. Always wanted to be an entrepreneur man : ( but I think it's not possible to startup my own company over here. Bangladeshi people tends to not invest in industry that much. This type of mentality of our people is what stops us from being a prosperous nation. Also adults are stupid af. They doesn't know how economy works and what is communism or capitalism. Doesn't know how to maintain their money or what to do with.
Leaves me with just doing jobs. So what is there except for being a Doctor or Engineer to become successful in this country.
According to various statistics and economic research that has been done, Bangladesh is considered one of the fastest growing economies in the world. While other developed countries of Asia are finally plateauing and even going through economic decline with declining birthrates and high government expenditures, do you wish to see Bangladesh take the role as a major economic power? Bangladesh has a lot of advantages that the developed Asian countries don't have like a young workforce, large foreign investment coming in, huge labor pool etc.
I know a lot of people wouldn’t approve of this! But this is just a hypothetical situation! I believe there would have very few disputes and a lot of lives would have been saved! It is completely alright to have an unpopular opinion if you aren’t spreading any hate to any person or belief!
Edit 1 : a certain comment made me curious, what we would call this land mass? And no, akhand Bharat won’t work.
I'm a Marxist Leninist who will eventually visit Bangladesh (Not sure due to COVID19) with my family and I am wondering if Bangladesh will be hostile to my politics, I have heard that many leftist organisations in Bangladesh are either on the fringes of irrelevance or that they don't even believe in Marx whilst claiming to do so, I have also heard the government is extremely oppressive to anyone in opposition of them, but will the general public care about me being a Communist? (To clarify, I am a minor, so would I be in less danger?)
