Bangladesh a country of diversity and harmony Bangladesh, the largest and active most riverine delta, is nestling 170 million (apprx.) lively people in its 147570 land area; having Dhaka, a 400 years old city, as the capital.

In 1971 Bangladesh emerged from a bloody war as an independent country. The Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman declared the independence of Bangladesh from Pakistan on 26 March, 1971, in response to years of political, economic, and social marginalisation faced by the people of East Pakistan (now Bangladesh). As the founding leader of Bangladesh, Bangabandhu played a pivotal role in guiding the nation during its formative years. Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s vision of building “Sonar Bangla” (Golden Bengal) was for a prosperous, self-reliant and equitable Bangladesh. He articulated this vision during his leadership and sought to transform the newly independent country into a model society where people could live with dignity, freedom, and prosperity.

The official language is Bangla, however, English is widely spoken. The people of Bangladesh heroically fought for their mother tongue Bangla, on 21 February 1952. Later, in 1999 UNESCO officially recognized the day as ‘International Mother Language Day and since 2000 the day has been observed all around the world.
