Bangladesh

Bangladeshi Farmers

Farmers in Bangladesh often struggle with flooding caused by cyclones. The flooding lasts for two to three months and causes damage to homes, crops, and animals. To counter these issues, many farmers in the areas switched from raising chickens to ducks, which are able to survive the conditions as they can swim and fly. 1)

One of the poorest countries

Bangladesh is located in South Asia on the Bay of Bengal. It is a relatively young country, as its history dates back only fifty years. Over the years, this small country has experienced wars, military coups, cyclones, famine, and extreme poverty. It is one of the poorest countries in Asia. 2)

Dhaka

The capital of the country is Dhaka. It is a city of 17 million, the main center of garment, textile, food, and metal industries of the country, as well as a market for the trade of jute, rice, oilseeds, sugar, and tea. It is the origin of muslin, the fine fabric of silk, cotton, or wool, produced there by numerous weavers. 3)

Rickshaw use

In Dhaka one of the main means of transport is rickshaws. About 400,000 of them hit the streets of the city every day, which is a world record. 4)

Dhakeśwari Hindu temple

In the center of the city is the Dhakeśwari Hindu temple, from which the city probably got its name. The temple probably dates back to the 11th century and is dedicated to the ten-armed goddess Dhakeśwari. 5)
