Villages and rivers are the backbone of Bangladesh. There are about 68,000 villages in Bangladesh. Most of the people still live in Bangladesh village. Life here is slow, air and food are fresh as opposed to the cities. Food is made from fresh vegetables directly coming from the field. People make different types of rice cakes so tasty and authentic.
The profession of most of the people in the villages is farming. But people also have other professions. There are normally different areas in every village based on their profession like the potter, fisherman, blacksmith, etc. In this photoblog, we’ll take you to visit the life and nature of a remote Bangladesh village located in the southwest part of the country so that you can get an idea about how they are and how people live there.
Lifestyle in Bangladeshi Villages
People live in the beautiful houses here made of clay. Roofs of them are made of burned clay called “tali” which protects them very well from the rainwater.
Cattles are raised by almost every family
They are used for plowing lands, getting fresh milk, and in cow carts which are used to transport goods, especially rice, wheat, potato, and other things produced on the fields to bring home.
Chickens, ducks, and pigeons are raised for fresh meat and egg.
Fresh vegetables come directly from the field to be added in the menu
