TOP 10 DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BANGLADESH AND INDIA

MANY OF US DON’T NOT KNOW MUCH ABOUT BANGLADESH. INDIA IS DIFFERENT BECAUSE IT REPRESENTS A LOT IN THE WESTERN MEDIA AND BOLLYWOOD IS SO BIG THAT EVERYONE KNOWS A LOT ABOUT INDIA. BEFORE THIS IF YOU DID NOT KNOW ABOUT BANGLADESH AND YOU WANT TO KNOW, THEN STAY TUNED.

THIS IS THE TOP 10 DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BANGLADESH AND INDIA.

10. LANGUAGE:

ON NUMBER TEN WE HAVE THEIR DIFFERENCE OF  LANGUAGES. IN BANGLADESH THEY SPEAK BENGALI OR BANGLA. 90% OF PEOPLE SPEAK BANGLA AND ITS THEIR OFFICIAL LANGUAGE. BUT ENGLISH IS THEIR SECOND LANGUAGE BECAUSE OF OFFICIAL AND LEGAL PURPOSES.LANGUAGE BANGLADESH HAS A LOT OF ISLAMIC INFLUENCE. SO A LOT OF WORDS ARE RELATE TO URDU OR ARBI LIKE ASALAMALAKUM FOR HELLO, KHUDA HAFIZ FOR BYE ETC. BUT IN WEST BANGLADESH THEY HAVE HINDI AND INDIAN INFLUENCE BECAUSE OF THE INDIAN BORDER NEARBY. BANGLADESHI PEOPLE SPEAK A LOT OF LANGUAGES SUCH AS CHITTAGONIAN, SYLHETI, CHAKMA, AND RANGPURI. SO IT’S JUST FOUR LANGUAGES IN THE LIST. IN INDIA A LOT OF PEOPLE SPEAK BENGALI NEAR TO 242 MILLION PEOPLE. TO PUT THAT IN PERSPECTIVE FOR YOU 242 MILLION PEOPLE IS MORE THAN THE POPULATION OF COUNTRIES LIKE PAKISTAN, BRAZIL, AND INDONESIA. IN INDIA THEIR MAIN LANGUAGE IS HINDI. BUT THEY HAVE A LOT OF LANGUAGES LIKE TAMIL, TELUGU, MALAYALAM, AND GUJARATI.

09. FOOD:

FOODON NUMBER 9 WE HAVE THEIR FOOD. IN INDIA THERE’S MORE OF VEGETARIAN FOOD AS THE MAJORITY POPULATION IS HINDU. NOT EVERYONE IS VEGETARIAN AND IF SOME PEOPLE ARE HINDU THEN IT’S NOT NECESSARY THAT HE IS VEGETARIAN. SO IN INDIA, THEY USE A LOT OF LENTILS, POTATOES, OKHRA AND A LIL BIT OF BEEF AS WELL. BUT EVERYTHING IS ALLOWED IN BANGLADESH. BUT THE MOST FAMOUS IS SEAFOOD AND THEY LOVE THEIR SEAFOOD. THERE’S ACTUALLY A FAMOUS PROVERB ‘MACHE BHATE BENGALI‘. IT MEANS BENGALI BY FISH AND RICE. THE MOST COMMON INGREDIENTS ARE FISH, FISH HEAD, EVERY SORT OF SEAFOOD, MUSTARD IN ANY FORM OF OIL, PASTE AND OBVIOUSLY ALL THE ONIONS YOU CAN THINK OF. BANGLADESHIS EAT ALL THIS WITH RICE, PARATHA, AND ROTIS.

08. POPULATION:

POPULATIONON NUMBER 8 WE HAVE POPULATION. THIS YEAR POPULATION OF BANGLADESH IS 167,012,355 PEOPLE AND INDIA’S POPULATION IS 1.36 BILLION. SO YOU CAN SEE THAT INDIA’S POPULATION IS 8 TIMES OF BANGLADESH’S. SO AGAIN WHAT’S GONNA BE A MASSIVE DIFFERENCE AS INDIA IS MUCH MORE LARGER COMPARED TO BANGLADESH. SO THE POPULATION SIZES IS JUSTIFIED. WHENEVER I READ ABOUT POPULATION, I RECOGNIZE ITS A BIG NUMBER BUT MY MIND CAN’T EVEN ENVISION THAT MANY PEOPLE IN ONE PLACE. BUT THEN I START HAVING LIKE AN EXISTENTIAL CRISIS BECAUSE OF I’M LIKE WOW I’M ONE PERSON IN LIKE A BAJILLION PEOPLE OUT THERE. ANYONE ELSE??

07. AREA OF THE COUNTRY:

ON NUMBER 7 WE HAVE THE SIZE OF BOTH COUNTRIES. BANGLADESH AS A COUNTRY IS ABOUT 147,570 KM² LARGE AND INDIA IS 3.287 MILLION KM². SO IF WE COMPARE IT WITH USA AND IF WE COMBINE PENNSYLVANIA AND NEW JERSEY BANGLADESH IS SLIGHTLY LARGER AND LITTLE SMALLER THAN IOWA. INDIA, ON THE OTHER HAND, IS THIRD OF THE USA.AREA OF THE COUNTRY ADMITTEDLY I PERSONALLY HAVE NO IDEA HOW BIG IS PENNSYLVANIA NEW JERSEY OR IOWA ARE BUT HOPEFULLY THAT MAKE SENSE TO SOMEBODY WATCHING OUT THERE. BANGLADESH IS SURROUNDED BY BURMA AND INDIA. BUT INDIA IS SURROUNDED BY BANGLADESH, PAKISTAN, CHINA, BHUTAN, BURMA, AND NEPAL. FUN FACT FOR THE DAY FOR YOU.

06. RELIGION:

ON NUMBER 6 WE HAVE RELIGION. IN INDIA 78.9% OF PEOPLE ARE HINDU, 14.2% MUSLIM AND CHRISTIAN, SIKHS AND OTHER MINORITIES MAKE UP THE REMAINING 5%. It’s OPPOSITE IN BANGLADESH.RELIGION OVER THERE 89.1 % PEOPLE ARE MUSLIM 10% ARE HINDU AND 0.9% ARE THE REST. NOW IS THE TIME FOR A LITTLE HISTORY LESSON EARLIER BANGLADESH WAS KNOWN AS WEST PAKISTAN AND WHEN PAKISTAN WAS CREATED AFTER SEPARATING FROM INDIA IN 1947 IT WAS THE ONLY COUNTRY FORMED ON THE BASIS OF RELIGION. SO IT MAKES THAT WEST PAKISTAN WHICH IS CURRENT DAY BANGLADESH IS PREDOMINANTLY MUSLIM.RELIGION

05. FLAG:

ON NUMBER 5 WE HAVE FLAGS. BANGLADESH FLAG IS GREEN IN COLOR AND HAS A RED DISC IN MIDDLE. THE RED DISC REPRESENTS SUN RISING OVER BENGAL AND ALSO BLOOD OF ALL PEOPLE WHO DIED FOR THE INDEPENDENCE. THE GREEN COLOR REPRESENTS THE GREENERY OF BANGLADESH.FLAG INDIAN FLAG IS A LITTLE COMPLICATED. THE FLAG HAS 3 STRIPES AND IN THE CENTRE BLUE WHEEL. ORANGE REPRESENTS COURAGE AND SACRIFICE, GREEN STRIPE REPRESENTS CHIVALRY AND FAITH  AND WHITE STRIPE REPRESENTS PEACE AND TRUTH. THE WHEEL IS CALLED ASHOKA CHAKRA AND THAT’S THE LAW OF DHARMA. IT JUST MEANS INDIANS MAIN LIFE SHOULD BE TRUTH AND VIRTUE. WHICH IS PRETTY FAIR. IT SHOULD BE EVERYONE’S PRINCIPLES.

04. TRANSPORT:

TRANSPORTON NUMBER 4 WE HAVE TRANSPORT. INDIA IS MUCH LARGER THAN BANGLADESH. SO IT HAS MANY TRANSPORT OPTIONS. INDIA HAVE 68,500 KM RAILWAY LINE AND ROAD UP TO 4,699,024 KM AND MORE THAN 350 AIRPORTS. I AM REALLY SHOCKED AS THAT’S A HEFTY NUMBER. IN BANGLADESH THERE’S ONLY 2460 KM RAILWAY LINE AND 20000 KM ROADS AND ONLY 18 AIRPORTS. AND AS I SAID BANGLADESH IS SMALLER THAN INDIA. BUT MANY PEOPLE IN BANGLADESH EVEN USE CARS OR  MOTORBIKES OR EVEN WALK OR EVEN BUS. SO THAT’S WHY 80% ROUTES ARE BUS ROUTES.

03. CURRENCY:

CURRENCY CURRENCY

ON NUMBER 3 WE HAVE CURRENCY. NOW EVERY COUNTRY HAS THEIR OWN CURRENCY. IN INDIA THEY USE INDIAN RUPEE BUT IN BANGLADESH THEY USE BANGLADESHI TAKA. 63 BANGLADESHI TAKA IS EQUAL TO 1 CANADIAN DOLLAR, OR 83 TAKA IS EQUAL TO 1 US DOLLAR. WHERE 54 INDIAN RUPEE IS EQUAL TO 1 CAD, OR 71 RUPEE IS EQUAL TO 1 USD. SO IF ANY IS WONDERING WHAT THE EXCHANGE RATES WERE I JUST DID THE WORK FOR YOU. SO YOU’RE WELCOME.

02. CELEBRATIONS:

ON NUMBER 2 WE HAVE CELEBRATIONS. IN BANGLADESH MAJOR CELEBRATIONS ARE ISLAMIC LIKE EID-UL-FITR, EID-AL-ADHA. BUT THEY EVEN HAVE BENGALI CALENDAR.CELEBRATIONS WHICH CONSIST OF DIFFERENT CELEBRATIONS LIKE POILA BOISHAKH. THIS IS THE 1ST DAY OF BENGALI CALENDAR AND IT REPRESENTS THE 1ST DAY OF CROP SEASON. ON THIS DAY THEY CLEAN THEIR HOUSES AND MEET THEIR RELATIVES. THERE ARE FESTIVITIES ALL OVER TOWN AND MANY PRODUCTS ARE SOLD LIKE HANDICRAFTS ETC. A VERSION OF THIS IS CELEBRATED IN INDIA AS WELL. THEY ALSO HAVE NABANNA WHICH IS THEIR HARVEST SEASON. IN INDIA ALSO THERE ARE A LOT OF CELEBRATIONS LIKE DIWALI, EID, GANESH FESTIVALS, HOLI, AND LOT OF THEM. THERE’S A LOT OF THEM WHEN I WAS DOING MY RESEARCH, WIKIPEDIA HAS NEARLY ABOUT 81 OF THEM. HOW DO PEOPLE EVEN REMEMBER THAT MANY CELEBRATION. I CAN BARELY REMEMBER PEOPLE’S BIRTHDAYS.

01. DRUGS:

ON NUMBER 1 WE HAVE DRUGS. AND I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT MEDICINES. BANGLADESH DOESN’T HAVE A MARKET OF ILLEGAL DRUGS. BUT BANGLADESH IS KNOWN AS A TRANSIT COUNTRY.DRUGS DRUGS ARE MADE IN THE NEIGHBOURING COUNTRIES AND THEY TRAVEL THROUGH BANGLADESH. INNOCENT BY FAULT BUT GUILTY BY ASSOCIATION. ON THE OTHER HAND, INDIA IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST OPIUM PRODUCER FOR PHARMACEUTICAL MARKET. BUT IT GETS DIVERTED TO INTERNATIONAL DRUG MARKET. INDIA EVEN PRODUCES METH AND KETAMINE. SO HOPEFULLY THERE WERE SOME FACTS THAT YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT IN THE WORLD.
