What is Bangladesh? Is it a third-world country suffocated in a sweltering heat and suffering from nationwide poverty, political corruption, natural disaster and mistrust? Or a golden country burning with an insanely beautiful culture and community, jade green paddy fields, the warmest colours of humanity and generosity, and ripples of silver water colliding with fertilising monsoon rains and smiles of the simplest joys and freedoms? Or, a pair of both these worlds?
At the moment, I'd like to forward you to the Wikipedia article for Bangladesh. The article is extremely thorough and informative, and voted one of the best articles on Wikipedia.
