Bangladesh inspires and agitates you  


Bangladesh ...
  • That country at the bay of Bengal, shallow
       alluvium nerved by numerous rivers, one of the
       world's poorest countries
  • That country with the world's densest
  • That country where people with different
       religions manage to live side by side in peace
  • That country of the unpropertied day laborers
       whose primary work is in the paddy fields
  • That country where 40 % of the land is
       flooded during rainy seasons
  • That country without pebbles
  • That country of ample markets and low prices
  • That country that is dominated by men
  • That country with a woman as the Prime
        minister and a woman as the opposition leader
  • That country where nobly robed women sit
       in trishaws of emciated men
  • That country with sweet tea and hot dishes
  • That country of scenic paddy fields littered
       with waste
  • That country where you can experience the
       Islam in a different way
  • That country of piercing looks, of self
       confident curiosity and of timid respect
  • That country of music and klaxons
  • That country where your eyes will discover
       swirling vibrancy while your mind can find peace

    My Bengal of gold, I love you.
    Forever your skies,
    your air set my heart in tune
    As if it were a flute.
    In spring, O mother mine, the fragrance from
    your mango grove
    Makes me wild with joy
    Ah, what a thrill!
    In autumn, O mother mine,
    In the full blossomed paddy fields
    I have seen spread all over sweet smiles.
    Ah, what a beauty, what shades, what
    an affection
    And what a tenderness!
    What a quilt have you spread at the feet of
    Banyan trees
    And along the banks of rivers!
    O mother mine, words from your lips
    Are like nectar to my ears.
    Ah, what a thrill!
    If sadness, O mother mine, casts a gloom on
    your face,
    eyes are filled with tears!

    National anthem of Bangladesh
    Rabindranath Tagore
