Bangladesh (বাংলাদেশ)

Bangladesh is situated to the eastern side of the Indian Subcontinent, flanked by India in The West, North and North-East and Myanmar to the South-East and Nepal slightly removed to the North. It is situated between 20 0 34' and 26 0 38' North Latitude and  88 0 01' and 92 0 41' East Longitude. It has an area of 147,570 Sq. Km. and a population of nearly 140 million. It has a population density of 900+ persons per Sq. Km., which is the highest in world.

Bangladesh is a tropical country. Threaded by rivers, dotted with paddy fields and covered by lush green vegetation, Bangladesh is famous for its natural beauty. Due to the monsoon rainfall and the silt carried by the three great rivers, the Padma (the Ganges), the Brahmaputra and the Meghna, the soil of Bangladesh is also very fertile.

Bangladesh has a history of Mongoloid, Austro-Mongoloid and Austro Dravidian settlers. The People of the country have come to know as Bengalese. There are also minority tribal communities such as the Santhal, Chakma, Marma, Kol, Vil, Munda, Monipuri, Garo and Khasia.

Rajshahi (রাজশাহী )

The Division of Rajshahi in the northwestern corner of Bangladesh is bordered on the east by the mighty Jamuna River and the Padma/Ganges River on the south, and shares a disputed border with India to the north and west, making access to Gaud, one of the most interesting archaeological sites in all of Bengal, almost impossible. During Partition, the ancient capital of Gaur was split through the middle and now part of it lies in Bangladesh and part in India.

The city of Rajshahi is the divisional headquarters of Rajshahi division as well as the administrative district that bears its name and is one of the six metropolitan cities of Bangladesh.
