My experience of Bangladesh

Our experience of Bangladesh is complicated. The Bengali people all work together to help refugees from different countries and provide them with a home, food and other important things. However, in Bangladesh there is fighting going between different cultures and even the countries around the outside.

congenial_theory: When I visted our grandparents in Dhaka, the Capital of the country, there were lots of high building full of flats. It was loud and smokey with lots of people to meet. There were hundreds of shops and I bought lots of dresses there. We ate samosas, rice, chicken and vegetables.

Chatty_ temperature:When I visited Sylhet, in the North it was actually quite fun. I visited loads of places, helping my Uncle prepare for his wedding. The town had a market centre with shops selling accesories and open shops selling food. People spoke Bengali but in a different accent to how they speak in the Capital. We ate lots of rice and chicken and even pigeon.

There are offices around Bangladesh, helping people in crisis in nearby countries. On TV the adverts were explaining that people were living on the streets and were very poor. They were asking the families to help other people, giving them the resources they need.

If you had £1 it would buy you a roof for a family, clothes for them or medicines.

Bangladesh is our families home. They country is trying to help the countries around them; offering food and help or a place to live. However, Bangladesh is suffereing from the yearly floods and storms and so needs help from the rest of the world to care for their neighbours.

    Hi congenial_theory and chatty_temperature, thanks for your post! I gave you both a star or excellent storytelling. It's great to hear your experiences of your families' homes. You also make an interesting point about the conflict between Bangladesh wanting to help others but needing help itself. I wonder if any one else has experiences of Bangladesh? Or if any other BNC members thing they could suggest what Bangladesh should do next; should they keep helping other people or help themselves first? Or maybe there's a third option?

    Thank you Olivia, we were looking at a map of Bangladesh and our teacher realised Myanmar used to be called Burma! She hadn't realised it was the same place.

    My experience of Bangladesh was amazing because I actually got to see how they work together.

    Hello Olivia!
    I think Bangladesh should help themselves and others. I think if they kept helping people something good is going to happen to them. Maybe that lucky thing that might happen to them, can help them.

    My experience was great and I have had so much fun and there are so many things to tell everyone about. This might sound weird but when I went there I had to eat with my hands but sometimes we could eat with a fork or a spoon. People in Bangladesh are different but it doesn't matter who we are because we all live in the same world and we are all like a family so we should respect and love each other,the same way we love our own family.

    This is so interesting! I didn't know they had floods and every year as well! I am going to try and find somewhere where I can donate some money to the Bengali people so they can have things.

    Excellent post. I completely agree that Bangladesh have to much to deal with as it is; the refugees coming into their country is dong nothing but preventing the developing of the country. I admire the incredible Bengali's passion to help and support those in need however they are already so many people in their own country who are homeless or disadvantaged. I think the United Nations are turning a blind eye on the Rohingya refugee crisis and Aung Sung Suu Kyi should definitely strive to take more positive action to achieve peace In her own country - a noble peace prize winner is a tyrant. I understand that Bangladesh share a similar culture to the Rohingya however if the refugees keep flooding in their would surely be a civil war - something Bangladesh will not be able to cope with. The UN should perhaps send the Rohingya to a more stable country or - better yet - send the Bengali supplies and money to support the Rohingya.

    I think people should work together because two is greater than one , four is greater then three and if bangladesh can work together with other countries bangladesh can go from zero to hundred.

    I think that they should work together because they don't want to be enemies and I am from their.

    Bangladesh is a poor country that tries to settle in new people and refeegies. I mostly had a hard time there because when it rained it felt like there is going to be a flood there.

    every single country should help Bangladesh because we are all a family and we should stick together.
