  • The Colorful Cultural life of the tribal people of Bangladesh also plays an important part in the Cultural life of Bangladesh.
    The picturesque hill ranges of their peripheral regions on the north -east,east and south-east, ordering Mymensingh ,Sylhet,and Chittagong Hill tracts are inhabited by a number of tribal people, whose culture and way of life are as varied and colorful as the natural beauty of our land.Dress,ornaments,tools and weapons ,rituals,customs,traditions and crafts are sharply different from the people of the plains. No cogent history, but some legends, is to be found about any of the quasi-tribal groups living at present in Bangladesh. According to the legend a,still in current, each appear to be a sub-segment of a nomadic tribe who prowled in the neighboring lands for their sustance in the hoary past and ultimately wended its way into naturally forlorn lurking pockets of Bangladesh following incessant feud for either land or leadership. This supposition may be held to be correct for the Northerners as well as east-enders only since we have definite proof that the Westerners were brought as immigrants by different colonial peers
    from Santalparganah,Nagpur and Ranchi of India in the late-medieval period. Whatever may be the case, they are now sharing Bangladeshi nationhood at full length.But,they are gradually forgetting their hereditary style of life with the fast expanding urbanization.
    REALLY SORRY TO SEE THAT BANGLADESH WAS NOT A PARTICIPANT OF THIS WONDERFUL EVENTS,WHEREAS,BANGLADESH HAS A RICH HERITAGE ABOUT THIS EVENTS.

  • great developments
