40TH YEAR CELEBRATION FOR BANGLADESH IS TODAY!  The day when the liberation war with Pakistan ended.  I was 23 years old and I don’t recall seeing it in the news,  but I am enjoying visiting in this country.  Two of my grandsons were born here in Bangladesh.  It is interesting that I am almost as old as Pakistan and my sons are almost as old as Bangladesh.  Both of my sons have spend time working here in this country filled with many friendly hospital Bengalis.  It is a country of 150 million people with 15 million living in the capital of Dhaka.  At least 88% of the people are Muslim.  With time constraints in today’s schedule I didn’t have time to locate photos of the National Flag, Flower, Bird, or Animal.  Of course the Bengal Tiger has eluded me!  I once took a photo of a tiger’s track that the guide thought was maybe less than an hour old!  I decided to post this photo which not only was handy in my flash drive, but showed the friendliness of Bengalis in this village near Mymensingh. We have visited this village twice this year.

Day 46

THIS BENGALI LADY POSED FOR ME as I was returning from a trip to Farmgate on Victory Day to get my glasses adjusted. On 16 Dec 2011 Bangladesh celebrated the 40th anniversary of its victory against Pakistani troops in the 1971 Liberation War.
