Ever been curious to find out about how other cultures than your own live. Now there is an opportunity to learn about one; culture of Bangladesh. Organized by the Bangladesh Embassy, Bangladesh Festival 2017 is set to be held on 18th of November, within the Embassy’s compound. It will be the first such event for the Embassy since it opened its doors in Addis Ababa just last year.
The event is open for people to visit to learn more about the country’s culture; food, music, clothing and so on.
According to Wikipedia, the culture of Bangladesh refers to the way of life of the people of Bangladesh. It has evolved over the centuries and encompasses the cultural diversity of several social groups of Bangladesh. The Bengal Renaissance of the 19th and early 20th centuries, noted Bengali writers, saints, authors, scientists, researchers, thinkers, music composers, painters, and film-makers have played a significant role in the development of Bengali culture.
The Bengal Renaissance contained the seeds of a nascent political Indian nationalism and was the precursor in many ways to modern Indian artistic and cultural expression. The culture of Bangladesh is composite and over the centuries has assimilated influences of Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity.
It is manifested in various forms, including music, dance, and drama; art and craft; folklore and folktale; languages and literature; philosophy and religion; festivals and celebrations; as well as in a distinct cuisine and culinary tradition.
The music and dance styles of Bangladesh may be divided into three categories: classical, folk, and modern. The classical style has been influenced by other prevalent classical forms of music and dances of the Indian subcontinent and, accordingly, show some influenced dance forms like Bharatnatyam and Kathak.
Bangladesh is famous for its distinctive culinary tradition, delicious food, snacks, and savouries. Steamed rice constitutes the staple food, and is served with a variety of vegetables, fried as well with curry, thick lentil soups, egg, fish and meat preparations of chicken, mutton, beef, duck. Sweetmeats of Bangladesh are mostly milk based, and consist of several delights including roshgulla, shondesh, roshomalai, gulap jam, kalo jam, and chom-chom.
Several other sweet preparations are also available. Bengali cuisine is rich and varied with the use of many specialised spices and flavours. Fish is the dominant source of protein, cultivated in ponds and fished with nets in the fresh-water rivers of the Ganges delta.
More than 40 types of mostly freshwater fish are common, including carp, varieties like rui (rohu), katla, magur (catfish), chingŗi (prawn or shrimp), as well as shuţki machh (dried sea fish) are popular. Salt water fish ilish is very popular among Bengalis, can be called an icon of Bengali cuisine. Unlike neighbouring West Bengal, serving dishes with beef is not a taboo in Bangladesh. Beef curry is a very common and essential part of Bengal cuisine.
Bangladeshi people have unique dress preferences. Bangladeshi men traditionally wear Panjabi on religious and cultural occasions. Bangladeshi men wear lungi as casual wear (in rural areas) and shirt-pant or suits on formal occasions.
Shari is the main and traditional dress of Bangladeshi women also and some young female also wear salwar kameez. In urban areas, women can also be seen wearing Western clothes. The women also have a different preference to which types of Sharee or any other popular dess like Salwar kameez they would like to wear.
Whether it may be silk sharis, georgette sharis, or designer sharis, each particular fabric contributes to representing the culture overall. Weaving the fabric for these dresses is a traditional art in Bangladesh.
