Culture of Bangladesh

Bangladesh has a long history in its cultures. The land, the rivers, and the lives of the Bengali people formed a rich heritage with marked differences from neighbouring regions. 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 anascent political Indian nationalism and was theprecursor in many ways to modern Indian artisticand cultural expression. The culture of Bangladesh is composite and over the centuries has assimilated influences of Hinduism , Jainism , Buddhism , Islam , 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.
