marigold flower garden | How to Plant, Grow, and Care Planting Marigolds need lots of sunshine. Though they grow in almost any soil, marigolds thrive in moderately fertile, well-drained soil. Sow them directly into the garden once the soil is warm, or start seeds indoors about a month to 6 weeks before the last spring-frost date. The seeds germinate easily, but watch out for damping off if you start them inside. Separate seedlings when they are about 2 inches tall. Plant them in flats of loose soil, or transplant them into the garden. Space tall marigolds 2 to 3 feet apart; lower-growing ones about a foot apart. If planting in containers, use a soil-based potting mix. Care Germination from large, easily handled seeds is rapid, and blooms should appear within a few weeks of sowing. If the spent blossoms are deadheaded, the plants will continue to bloom profusely. When you water marigolds, allow the soil to dry somewhat between watering, then water well, then repeat the process. Do not water marigolds from overhead. Water at the base of the plant. Do not fertilize marigolds. Too rich a diet stimulates lush foliage at the expense of flowers. Marigolds bloom better and more profusely in poor soil. The densely double flowerheads of the African marigolds tend to rot in wet weather. Pests/Diseases Farmers and gardeners have long known that marigolds make important companion plants all over the garden. Not only does the scent of the marigold (Tagetes spp.) repel animals and insects, but the underground workings of the marigold will repel nematodes (microscopic worms) and other pests for up to 3 years. Marigolds themselves are hearty but may be prone to gray mold, bacterial leaf spot, powdery mildew, Alternaria leaf spot, damping off, and root rot. Harvest/Storage In flower arrangements, strip off any leaves that might be under water in the vase; this will discourage the overly pungent odor. Marigolds can be dried for long-lasting floral arrangements. Strip foliage from perfect blossoms and hang them upside down.

Gangatia Jomidar Bari, kishoreganj || গাংগাটিয়া জমিদার বাড়ী কিশোরগঞ্জ Gangatia Jomidar Bari(গাংগাটিয়া জমিদার বাড়ী) is located at the Gangatia(গাংগাটিয়া) union of Hossenpur upozela(হোসেনপুর উপজেলা) from the Kishoreganj(কিশোরগঞ্জ) district. But it has a direct road from Kishoreganj town. I didn't know that and visited there via the Hossenpur Upozela(হোসেনপুর উপজেলা). It was almost reaching a place after having round a turn of 360 degree(for example a 20 minutes or road, but I have reached there using another one that required 80 minutes). But the countryside beauty of our Bangladesh enthralled me a lot during the ride. This Jomidar Bari(জমিদার বাড়ী) is currently known as Manob Babur Bari(মানব বাবুর বাড়ী) as the current owner's name is Manab Babu(মানব বাবু) who is the last descendent of the Gangatia Jomidar(গাংগাটিয়া জমিদার). When I have reached there, it was around 12:00pm at the day. He was surprised as I was alone to visit there. He invited me to his Boithok Khana(বৈঠকখানা) and there we had a long chat on various topics. It was an wonderful moment and our time ran away within a blink. I wanted to prolong the conversation for another few hours, but unfortunately I had to cover other places and was running out of time. He has requested me to have a lunch with him as it was the lunch time when I was returning from there. Manob Babu(মানব বাবু) has fisheries project near from his house. He also suggested me to have a visit on his project. But once again, I was running out of time. So couldn't visit those projects. While returning from there, he gave a driver and a motorbike with me so that I do not face any problem to find the shortest path while returning. His hospitality and the generosity impressed me a lot. According to the Manob Babu(মানব বাবু), they are the possible smallest Jomidar(জমিদার) from the Bangladesh. He also mentioned that their forefathers came here from India, a Brahmin family(very strictly following Brahmin). During the war of 1971, the Pakistani armies and their Bangladeshi allies have done lot of damage to their house. Right now he is living there with his wife and sister. Neither he nor his brothers(all his brothers are passed away) have any children. Gangatia Jomidar Bari(গাংগাটিয়া জমিদার বাড়ী) is mainly a small house that is having an array of Roman styled columns at the front. The architecture and the style of the building from the front side is amazingly beautiful. Very few travelers use to visit here. This Jomidar Bari(জমিদার বাড়ী) is a small one, but it has a massive boundary. The front door is also decorated and stylish. (গাংগাটিয়া জমিদার বাড়ী) This one is built lastly. They use to live in this building. How to Go: Below is the shortest direction to visit the Gangatia Jomidar Bari(গাংগাটিয়া জমিদার বাড়ী). 1) Take a battery driven vehicle from the Bot toli(বটতলী) of Kishoreganj(কিশোরগঞ্জ) town. Its around 20 taka per person. It takes around 25 minutes to reach near Gangatia(গাংগাটিয়া). GPS Coordinate of the tempo stand is (24°26'29.65"N, 90°46'36.86"E). Dropping zone to leave the battery driven vehicle is (24°27'14.96"N, 90°42'8.58"E). 2) You'll find nothing here. So start walking by asking direction to the local people(10/12 minutes of walking). They know this as Manob Babur Bari(মানব বাবুর বাড়ী). GPS Coordinate of the Manob Babur Bari(মানব বাবুর বাড়ী) aka Gangatia Jomidar Bari(গাংগাটিয়া জমিদার বাড়ী) is (24°27'45.63"N, 90°42'11.82"E). Most of the Hindu Jomidar Bari(জমিদার বাড়ী) from Bangladesh are in a very poor condition. That time the owners were facing difficulties for religious upheaval and other adverse situations, thus they have sensed an urgency to leave this country for their own safety. But fortunately, here they are still living with pride, may be they were too much friendly with the peasants.

Sonargaon Sonargaon (সোনারগাঁও) also transcribed as meaning (City of Gold) was a historic administrative, commercial and maritime centre in Bengal. Situated in the centre of the Ganges delta, it was the seat of the medieval Muslim rulers and governors of eastern Bengal. Sonargaon was described by numerous historic travellers, including Ibn Battuta, Ma Huan, Niccolò de' Conti and Ralph Fitch as a thriving centre of trade and commerce. It was an administrative centre of Fakhruddin Mubarak Shah's sultanate, the Bengal Sultanate and the Kingdom of Bhati. The area is located near the modern industrial river port of Narayanganj in Bangladesh. Today, the name Sonargaon survives as the Sonargaon Upazila (Sonargaon Subregion) in the region. History Pre-Muslim period The name Sonargaon came as the Bangla version of the ancient name Suvarnagrama. Buddhist ruler Danujamadhava Dasharathadeva shifted his capital to Suvarnagrama from Bikrampur sometime in the middle of the 13th century. In early 14th century, Bauddha ruling in this area ended when Shamsuddin Firoz Shah (reigned 1301–1322) of Lakhnauti occupied and annexed it to his kingdom. Muslim period Muslim settlers first arrive in Sonargaon region in around 1281.Sharfuddin Abu Tawwamah, a medieval Sufi saint and Islamicphilosopher came and settled here sometime between 1282 and 1287. He then established his Khanqah and founded a Madrasa. Firoz Shah built a mint in Sonargaon from where a large number of coins were issued. When he died in 1322, his son, Ghiyasuddin Bahadur Shah, replaced him as the ruler. In 1324 Delhi Sultan, Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq, declared war against him and after the battle, Bahadur Shah was captured and Bengal, including Sonargaon, became a province of Delhi Sultanate. The same year, Sultan Muhammad bin Tughlaq, son and successor of Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq, released him and appointed him as the governor of Sonargaon province. After 4 years of governorship, in 1328, Bahadur Shah declared independence of Bengal. Delhi Sultan Muhammad bin Tughlaq sent his general, Bahram Khan, to depose him. In the battle, Bahadur Shah was defeated and killed. Bahram Khan recaptured Sonargaon for the Delhi Sultanate and he was also appointed the governor of Sonargaon. When Bahram Khan died in 1338, his armour-bearer, Fakhruddin Mubarak Shah, declared himself the independent Sultan of Sonargaon.Fakhruddin sponsored several construction projects, including a trunk road and raised embankments, along with mosques and tombs. 14th century Moroccan traveller, Ibn Batuta, after visiting the capital in 1346, described Fakhruddin as "a distinguished sovereign who loved strangers, particularly the fakirs and sufis". After the death of Fakhruddin in 1349, Ikhtiyaruddin Ghazi Shahbecame the next independent ruler of Sonargaon. Ilyas Shah, the independent ruler of Lakhnauti, attacked Sonargaon in 1352. After defeating Ikhtiyaruddin Ghazi Shah, he became the sole ruler of whole Bengal for the first time in history and thus he became the founder of a sultanate of the unified Bengal. A squadron of the Chinese fleet of Zheng He, commanded by the eunuch Hong Bao, visited Sonargaon in 1432. The information about that expedition comes from the book of one of its participants, the Muslim translator Ma Huan. In 1451 Huan wrote his experience in details in his book Yingyai Shenglan (The Overall Survey of the Ocean's Shores). Sonargaon is the eastern terminus of the Grand Trunk Road, which was built by the Pashtun emperor Sher Shah Suri and extended approximately 2500 kilometres from Bangladesh across northern India and Pakistan to Kabul in Afghanistan. Isa Khan's rule When Taj Khan Karrani was the independent Afghan ruler of Bengal, Isa Khan obtained an estate in Sonargaon and Maheswardi Pargana in 1564 as a vassal of the Karrani rulers. Isa Khan gradually increased his strength and in 1571 he was designated as the ruler of the whole Bhati region. In 1575 he helped Daud Khan Karranifight the Mughal flotilla in the vicinity of Sonargaon. Daud Khan Karrani died in the Battle of Raj Mahal against Mughals in 1576. Akbar then made Isa Khan the zamindar of Sonargaon, making him one of the Baro-Bhuiyans. However, he continued resisting Mughal rule. With the help of his allies, he stood defiant against Mughals in battle against Subahdar Khan Jahan in 1578, Subahdar Shahbaz Khan in 1584 and Durjan Singh in 1597. Isa Khan died in September 1599. His son, Musa Khan, then took control of the Bhati region. But after the defeat of Musa Khan on 10 July 1610 by Islam Khan, the army general of Mughals, Sonargaon became one of the sarkarsof Bengal subah. The capital of Bengal was then shifted to Jahangirnagar (later named Dhaka). Bangladesh period Lok Shilpa Jadughar (Folk Art and Craft Museum) of Sonargaon was established by Bangladeshi painter Joynul Abedin on 12 March 1975. The house, originally called Bara Sardar Bari, was built in 1901.

Hefazat-e-Islam Bangladesh • Hefajat-e-Islam Bangladesh (Bengali: হেফাজতে ইসলাম বাংলাদেশ;) also known as Hifazat-e-Islam Bangladesh is an association based fundamentalist Islamic group in Bangladesh, was formed in January 2010. This group was formed in 2010 to protest against the secular education policy of Bangladeshi government. In 2011, they held violent demonstrations against the women's equal rights policy of the government and in 2013, and became headlines after holding large rallies asking the government to take action against the Shahbag protesters, who are demanding capital punishment of Bangladesh liberation war criminals. In 2013 this group warned the government with a 13-point charter, which includes banning the right of women to work outside, execution of so-called atheist bloggers and stopping Shahbag protests. Although, the German ambassador in Bangladesh Albrecht Conze opined that Hifazat's demands fundamentalism in Bangladesh, diplomats from the US Embassy in Bangladesh met with the leaders of Hefazat. Long march in April On April 6, 2013, Hefajat-e-Islam organized a long march towards the Motijheel area in Dhaka from Chittagong, Sylhet and Rajshahi to push for their 13-point demand. Awami League leader Nowsher Khan has died of head injuries during a clash between his party activists and those of Hifazat-e Islam at Bhanga in Faridpur district. Hefajat supporters also attacked at a rally of Ghatak Dalal Nirmul Committee in Dhaka from their procession, and several people including a policeman were injured in an attack. Hefajat supporters also attacked on Projonmo Chattar in Shahbag, which injured Professor Afsar Ahmed, the ProVC of Jahangirnagar University. They threatened the journalists, and even beat a female journalist from Ekushey TV, named Nadia Sharmin. May 5 violence On May 5, 2013, Hefajat arranged a siege and rally at the capital city, Dhaka in the demand of their 13-points. They attacked the Communist Party of Bangladesh's office atMotijheel and burnt it. The supporters of the Hefajat-e Islam vandalized and torched at least 50 vehicles and several buildings during their rally at Motijheel. A clash was also carried out by them in front of the ruling party Awami League's headquarter at Paltan, Dhaka. Hefajat supporters set fire to book stores located beside the south gate of the National Mosque Baitul Mukarram during their program, inadvertently burning copies of Quran and Hadith. They also assaulted two on-duty television journalists working for private channels before the rally. Because of their violent act during the rally, top leaders of the Hefajat-e Islam have been accused in 12 cases of murder, vandalism, arson and destruction of properties and other charges. In the early hours of 6 May security forces, drawn from police, the elite Rapid Action Battalion and paramilitary Border Guard Bangladesh jointly launched an operation named2013 Operation at Motijheel Shapla Chattar to prevent Hefazat's violence by driving them out from Dhaka. At the beginning of operation, police cut the power supply in the city’s commercial area, but the total operation was live telecaste over few TV channel. 2 Television channels were stopped by government for broadcasting misleading informations. Hefajat activists continued to strike in Narayanganj, Hathazari and Bagerhat on Monday morning, hours after Hefajat men were flushed out of the capital’s Motijheel area resulting death of at least 27 people including two policemen and a BGB soldier. During the clash Hefajat men hurled cocktails, vandalized and torched vehicles, set fire to a police outpost on the highway. Some sources confirm that at least 38 people were died, which is also rejected by government. According to government estimates, the number of casualties in this operation was 11, including a few law enforcement members. Hefazat-e-Islam claims that thousands of their members were killed; Human Rights Watch rebutted that claim. A local media named "Independent" reported the total number of deaths to be over 30, and possibly up to 50. According to different media sources, the death toll rose to 27, including some law enforcement forces. Twenty of the victims, including two policemen and a BGB soldier, were killed in Narayanganj, and six were killed in Hathazari in Chittagong. The government has filed 12 cases against top leaders of the Hefajat-e Islam for murder, vandalism, arson and destruction of properties and other charges. Because of the differing views, Human Rights Watch called for an independent body to investigate the protest deaths, the poet and activist Farhad Mazhar said the government and media were making a cover-up and disinformation campaign. Hefazat claimed thousands of their men died on this operation which has not been supported by the free press, Human Rights Watch, Odhikar's June report, or the government.

The Bengali Language Movement, also known as the Language Movement (Bengali: ভাষা আন্দোলন Bhasha Andolôn), was a political movement in former East Bengal (today Bangladesh) advocating the recognition of the Bengali language as an official language of the then-Dominion of Pakistan in order to allow its use in government affairs, the continuation of its use as a medium of education, its use in media, currency and stamps, and to maintain its writing in the Bengali script. When the Dominion of Pakistan was formed by the partition of India in 1947, it was composed of various ethnic and linguistic groups, with the geographically non-contiguous East Bengal province (that was renamed in 1956 as East Pakistan) having a mainly Bengali population. In 1948, the Government of the Dominion of Pakistan ordained Urdu as the sole national language, sparking extensive protests among the Bengali-speaking majority of East Bengal. Facing rising sectarian tensions and mass discontent with the new law, the government outlawed public meetings and rallies. The students of the University of Dhaka and other political activists defied the law and organised a protest on 21 February 1952. The movement reached its climax when police killed student demonstrators on that day. The deaths provoked widespread civil unrest. After years of conflict, the central government relented and granted official status to the Bengali language in 1956. In 1999, UNESCO declared 21 February as International Mother Language Day, in tribute to the Language Movement and the ethno-linguistic rights of people around the world. The Language Movement catalysed the assertion of Bengali national identity in East Bengal and later East Pakistan, and became a forerunner to Bengali nationalist movements, including the 6-Point Movement and subsequently the Bangladesh Liberation War and Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. In Bangladesh, 21 February is observed as Language Movement Day, a national holiday. The Shaheed Minar monument was constructed near Dhaka Medical College in memory of the movement and its victims.

TOBACCO Cultivation Harvest and Curing Tobacco is a relatively easy plant to grow and can be grown as far north as Canada and Alaska with the proper planning and preparation. Tobacco seeds are extremely small (Fig. 1) not much larger than a pin prick and care should be taken when sowing seed as to not sow to thickly. Tobacco seed require warm temperatures for germination of about 75-80 degrees. Seed should be started indoors 4-6 weeks before your last frost date. Start by sprinkling the tobacco seed onto the surface of a sterile seed starting mix and lightly water in. DO NOT cover the seed with any soil as they need light for germination and covering can slow down germination time or if covered too deeply the seed won't germinate at all, watering in lightly is all that is needed. Seed will begin to germinate in about 7-10 days with some tobacco varieties taking a few days longer to begin germination (Fig. 2). If your seed don't germinate right away be patient, it can take up to 2 weeks for some tobacco varieties to germinate. The soil should be kept moist but not soggy and should never be allowed to dry completely out. Care should be taken when watering freshly emerging tobacco seedlings because the force of the water can uproot the tiny seedlings causing them to die. The best way to water seedlings is from the bottom, the way this is accomplished (if you are using a pot with holes in the bottom) sitting the container with the seedlings into a pan of water for only a few seconds or a bit longer, the potting mix will wick the water up into the seedling container allowing your seedlings to be water without getting the leaves wet. "Transplanting into trays/flats" The next step is to transplant the tobacco seedlings into a larger container such as a pot or transplant cell tray as seen in Fig. 3. so that they can develop a good root system. Under 'normal' conditions the tobacco seedlings will be large enough and ready for moving into pots or cells after 3 weeks from the beginning of germination. Once seed have germinated and seedlings are big enough you can grasp them Fig. 5 proceed to transplanting into your pots. Transplanting into containers is easily accomplished by making a small hole into the soil and inserting the roots of the tobacco seedling and backfilling the hole with a little soil mix, Fig 4. Once you have them potted in, water in with a plant starter fertilize solution such as miracle grow or seaweed/fish fertilize emulsions. Fig 1 Fig 2 Fig 3 Tobacco Seed Tobacco Seedlings Transplanted Tobacco Seedlings Tobacco seeds Seedlings beginning to germinate. Potted seedlings. Fig 4 Fig 5 Tobacco Seedling Planting Tobacco Seedling Closeup Transplanting seedlings into trays Close up of a seedling getting transplanted The initial fertilizing you gave at the potting stage should be sufficient food for the plants until they reach transplanting stage, (Fig. 6) which normal takes approximately 3-4 weeks. If your plants begin to yellow or look stunted another dose of fertilize may be needed but do so sparingly, over fertilization while in pots or trays may burn the plant's roots and may also lead to overgrown spindly plants. Tobacco plants are considered 'transplantable plants' meaning they, like tomato plants, can be planted bare root with out the need for any soil attached to the roots. If you have large containers or seedling flats you can sow the seed very thinly and leave the seedlings there until they reach the size for transplanting outdoors and pull the plants and transplant directly into your garden but I recommend using pots or celled trays. This is a much easier way to to do it but also has it's drawbacks. Once planted, bare root the plants will go through a sort of 'transplant shock' where some or most of the largest leaves may yellow and wilt and the plant may appear it is going to die, but it will not, the main stem and bud of the plant will continue to strive and in a week or so will begin to grow and flourish. By growing your seedlings in containers or celled trays there is no transplant shock and plants begin to grow immediately. If you are growing your tobacco seedlings in a greenhouse or indoors they should be "hardened off" before you transplant into your field or garden, but is not always necessary as long as your plants are not spindly and weak and weather conditions are favorable. This period allows the plant to adjust to outdoor weather conditions. A week of hardening off should be ample time but 2 weeks is even better.

Raw Jute in its natural form is very coarse and hard. For softening it has to be passed through a SOFTENER. The emulsion of oil and water and the pressure of fluted rollers through which it is passed makes the fibre damp and pliable. After 2 to 3 days this meshy structure of jute is passed through a sense of carding machines which are arranged in an increasing order of fineness. The BREAKER CARD as the machine is so termed breaks down the meshy structure into individual long entities of filaments as far as possible and also removes dust and other impurities The product now becomes more finer, softer and cleaner in appearance. It is then passed through the INTER AND FINISHING CARDS where the strands are further cleaned and become much more finer and softer. The silver as it comes out from the Finisher Card is only moderately uniform, while the fibres of which it is composed are somewhat mixed up, far from being straight or parallel. The fibre, therefore, is passed through a series of 'DRAWING FRAMES'. The sliver after being successfully passed through each of these frames now becomes more uniform and also reduced to a more suitable length for the SPINNING FRAME. The general appearance of the resultant product at this stage is soft, pliable, dry and straight The next process which the fibre undergoes is on a Spinning Frame. This consists of 4 1/4" and 5 1/2" Slip Draft Spinning Frame, where the sliver is drawn out to the required count of yarn and twisted to the degree for the purpose for which the yarn is intended, and ultimately wounded to a BOBBIN (twisting increases tensile strength of the fibre). Several of these bobbins are run in succession and the yarn is wound to form a bigger package. This winding is referred to as ROLL WINDING. The Finished Yarn as it now may be termed is finally twisted on a TWIST FRAME. Twisting frames are of various types and any one may be used depending upon the ply of the twine desired. The yarn from the roll winder is run down on to the twisting frame in opposite direction to that of the component yarns to prevent untwisting and maintain strength in finished TWINE The Warp and Weft Yarn are spun to similar bobbins in COP WINDING AND WARP WINDING machines Warp Yarn is later beamed in a BEAMING machine by moistening along with water heavily and winding them on to loom beam in a compact and hard matter covering the entire space. Later the woven fabrics is dampened for the purpose of preparing the fabric for finishing in a DAMPING MACHINE. The fabric is then calendered in a CALENDERING MACHINE. After the cloth is cut into requisite sizes the seam of the bag is sewn in OVERHEAD OR HERAKLE SEWING machine and hemmed in a HEMMING MACHINE. The collected bags are suitably baled in HYDRAULIC PRESS before they are shipped

Magura Lathi Khela A 100-year old tradition Lathi khela (Bengali: লাঠি খেলা) is a traditional Bangladeshi martial art – a kind of stick fighting practised mainly in Bangladesh. A practitioner is known as a lathial. Etymology The word lathi is the Bengali word meaning stick, while khela means a sport or game. Therefore, lathi khela translates as a game of sticks. Instruments The lathi is normally made of the male bamboo and sometimes bound at short intervals with iron rings. A typical lathi measures 6 to 8 feet (2 to 2.4 m). Some are shorter and may be wielded like a baton or bludgeon. In the past, sticks could be paired with shields, as can still be seen in nori bari (mock stick-fight) demonstrations. History Stick fighting has an ancient history in South Asia, tracing back to the region's aboriginal[clarification needed] inhabitants. Rich farmers and other eminent people hired lathial for security and as a symbol of their power. Duels were used as a way to protect or take land and other possessions. A proverb in some South Asian languages is "whoever wields the lathi keeps the cow". Zamindars (feudal lords) sent groups of lathial to forcefully collect taxes from villagers. Lathi training was at one time included in the Bratachari system of education. Although lathi is practised in Indian and Bangladeshi villages, urbanisation has led to its decline as a rural martial art in recent decades. Until 1989, an annual nationwide lathi khela convention was held in Kushtia, Bangladesh, where troupes from all over the country took part. Due to the drop in practitioners and spectators, the convention is now held once every three years. Even in the districts where lathi troupes once flourished, only several now remain. Today, lathi khela is most often seen during festivals and weddings. Matches are held in West Bengal for certain puja rituals, and a similar sport called chamdi is played during Eid in North Bengal. Practice Lathial group performed acts like Baoi Jhak (group fight), Nori Bari (mock fight with sticks), Fala Khela and Dao Khela (mock fight with sharp weapons) and Chhuri dance to music, in the presence of hundreds. These groups may learn the arts of dao khela (knife fighting) and fara khela (sword fighting), both of which are preserved today in the form of mock-fights. Matches are generally one-on-one, but the art includes mock-group fights or baoi jhak. In lathi the centre of energy is the heart chakra, and practitioners fight in a more upright position. The 100-year-old Lathi Khela Mela, a traditional festival of Magura district, was held on Friday amid much fanfare. Organised by Dumurshia villagers, the day long event was held at Dumurshia high school premises under Mohammadpur upazila in Magura district. Some eight 'lathial' groups from four upazilas of Magura and adjoining districts took part in the event. Every year, this traditional mela has been held on this day at Dumurshia village. The fair attracts a large number of enthusiastic visitors every year. Robiul Islam, principal of Babu Khali Adarsha Degree College said Lathi khela is an ancient tradition of Bengal. But now the popularity of this art-form is on the wane. We must work together to re-introduce this spectacular art form to the urbanites and uphold our heritage. Shorif Teheran Tutul, a lecturer said that this mela is one of the prime festivals of the locals. A village fair was also held in which traders from different upazilas of the district attended with their goods. People of all ages thronged the venue to enjoy the festivities along with a cultural show where local artistes entertained the audience.

Boga Lake is the most beautiful natural lake in Bangladesh. It is also known as Bagakain Lake or Baga Lake. is a lake located in Ruma Upazila in the hill district Bandarban, Bangladesh. It is a natural sweet and deep water lake. Its height from sea level is nearly 2,000 feet (610 m). Geologists believe that it was created by collection of rain water in the crater of a dead volcano almost 2000 years ago. The lake is rectangular in shape.A local legend tells that the lake was created after the inhabitants of a Khumi village killed and ate a deity who later reappeared to them in the form of a dragon. Instantly an earthquake occurred, the hillside caved in, and the village disappeared and formed a deep lake.The water color of the lake varies at different times at a day depending upon the sun light, humidity and clouds. Description: The lake is bounded on three sides by mountain peaks covered with thick bamboo bushes. The area of the lake is 18.56 acres (75,100 m2). It is a closed lake and there is a small spring named Boga chhara, which is 153 metres (502 ft) deep. There is no outlet for draining out water from the lake. The lake is composed of the soft rocks of the Bhuban Formation. The main source of water is the spring. The water is crystal clear and under the lake the water there are rocks and boulders all over. Tourism: There are small tribal communities like the Bawm, Tripura and Khumi located around the lake. In the rainy season, it is quite difficult to stroll beside the lake. The road from Ruma to Boga Lake is still under construction.The lake attracts tourists because of its scenic beauty but it is inaccessible by any means of transport. Only those who take the trouble of walking through the hilly bushes sometimes visit the lake. Due to the acidity of the lake, there is no immediate vegetation on its banks and no fish in its waters either. There are around 20 cottages located in the Bogalake surrounding. The most popular cottage is Siam Didi's cottage along with Laram's cottage and Robert cottage. Accommodation cost is per head basis TK. 100.00 only. Foods are also arranged by the cottages. Foods are fresh and hygienic. Food menu includes plain rice, potato vorta, pulse, egg fry and vegetables pricing TK. 100.00 only. There is no need to advance reservation. Before entering Bogalake, tourists need to take permission from army camp situated there. There is also a church for the local people. Most of them are Christian. Behind the church, locally made hard drinks are found, which are also good in taste. But visitors do not hike to Boga Lake for fishing, they come to the lake to marvel at its size, its magnificent views and to be able to enjoy a wonderful quiet moment of rest surrounded by natural beauty and wonder. বগালেক বাংলাদেশের প্রাকৃতিক সৌন্দয্যের মধ্যে অন্যতম। পাবত্য জেলা বান্দরবনের রুমাবাজারে বগালেকের অবন্থান। সমুদ্র পৃষ্ঠ থেকে প্রায় ১৫০০ ফিট উপরে বগালেকের অবস্থান।

Hardinge Bridge is a steel railway bridge over the river Padma located at Paksey, Ishwardi, Pabna in western Bangladesh. It is named after Lord Hardinge, who was the Viceroy of India from 1910 to 1916. The bridge is 1.8 kilometres (1.1 mi) long. Construction Construction of the through truss bridge began in 1910, though it was proposed at least 20 years earlier. It was completed in 1912, and trains started moving on it in 1915. Brief history Hardinge Bridge construction (1910) The construction of a railway bridge over the Padma was proposed in 1889 by the Eastern Bengal Railway for easier communication between Calcutta and the then Eastern Bengal and Assam. In 1902, Sir FJE Spring prepared a report on the bridge. A technical committee reported that a bridge could be constructed at Sara crossing the lower Ganges between the Paksey and Bheramara Upazila stations on the broad gauge railway from Khulna to Parbatipur Upazila. The construction of the bridge started in 1910 and finished two years later. The bridge comprises 15 steel trusses. The main girders are modified "Petit" type. The most difficult task of the operation was to prevent bank erosion and to make the river flow permanently under the bridge. For this, two guide banks of the "Bell-bund" type named after J. R. Bell were built on either side, each extending 910 metres (3,000 ft) upstream and 300 metres (1,000 ft) downstream from the bridge. The ends of the river banks were curved inward and heavily pitched with stone. হার্ডিঞ্জ ব্রিজ হার্ডিঞ্জ ব্রিজ বাংলাদেশের পাবনা জেলার ঈশ্বরদী উপজেলার পাকশী রেলওয়ে স্টেশন সংলগ্ন একটি রেলসেতু। এটি বাংলাদেশের সবচেয়ে দীর্ঘ রেলসেতু হিসেবে পরিচিত। পাবনা জেলার পাকশি রেলস্টেশনের দক্ষিণে পদ্মা নদীর উপর এই সেতুটি অবস্থিত। এই সেতুর নির্মাণকাল ১৯০৯-১৯১৫। তৎকালীন ভাইসরয় লর্ড হার্ডিঞ্জের নাম অনুসারে এই সেতুর নামকরণ করা হয়। হার্ডিঞ্জ ব্রিজের দৈর্ঘ্য ১,৭৯৮.৩২ মিটার বা ৫৮৯৪ফুট বা ১.৮ কিমি এর উপর দুটি ব্রড-গেজ রেললাইন রয়েছে। অবস্থান হার্ডিঞ্জ ব্রিজ ঈশ্বরদী উপজেলাধীন পাকশী ইউনিয়নে অবস্থিত। হার্ডিঞ্জ ব্রিজ ঈশ্বরদী উপজেলার একটি ঐতিহ্যবাহী স্থাপনা। ঈশ্বরদী উপজেলা সদর হতে প্রায় ৮ কিমি দক্ষিণে পাকশী ইউনিয়নে পদ্মা নদীর উপর সেতুটি অবস্থিত। ইতিহাস ১৯০৯ খ্রিস্টাব্দে সেতু নির্মাণের সমীক্ষা শুরু হয়। ১৯১০-১১ খ্রিস্টাব্দে পদ্মার দুই তীরে সেতু রক্ষার বাঁধ নির্মাণ হয়। ১৯১২ খ্রিস্টাব্দে সেতুটির গাইড ব্যাংক নির্মাণের কাজ শুরু হয়। পাশাপাশি সেতুর গার্ডার নির্মাণের কাজ শুরু হয়। গার্ডার নির্মাণের জন্য কূপ খনন করা হয়। ২৪ হাজার শ্রমিক দীর্ঘ ৫ বছর অক্লান্ত পরিশ্রম করে ১৯১৫ খ্রিস্টাব্দে সেতুটির নির্মাণ কাজ শেষ করেন। তৎকালীন অবিভক্ত ভারতের ভাইসরয় ছিলেন লর্ড হার্ডিঞ্জ। তাঁর নামানুসারে সেতুটির নামকরণ করা হয় হার্ডিঞ্জ ব্রীজ। সেতুটির নির্মাণে ব্যয় হয়েছিল ৩ কোটি ৫১ লক্ষ ৩২ হাজার ১ শত ৬৪ টাকা। সেতুটির দৈর্ঘ্য ৫ হাজার ৮ শত ফুট। ব্রিজটিতে ১৫টি স্প্যান আছে।

How to cultivate fish in pond A fish pond, or fishpond, is a controlled pond, artificial lake, or reservoir that is stocked with fish and is used in aquaculture for fish farming, or is used for recreational fishing or for ornamental purposes. In the medieval European era it was typical for monasteries and castles (small, partly self-sufficient communities) to have a fish pond. Growing Fish in Your Homemade Pond Records of fish ponds being used can be found from the early period of the middle ages. "The idealized eighth-century estate of Charlemagne's capitulary de villis was to have artificial fishponds but two hundred years later, facilities for raising fish remained very rare, even on monastic estates.". As the middle ages progressed, fish ponds became a more common feature of urbanizing environments.This meant the people who had access to these fish ponds were able to access a food supply in a controlled environment not unlike pastures for cattle and sheep. However fish ponds were a difficult environment to maintain. They were a marker of power and authority, since only rich nobles and institutions such as monastery's could afford to maintain them. During the winter, supplying fresh food for a castle garrison was a constant struggle. Nobles had access to meat from deer parks, but this didn't supply the needs of whole households. Though fish ponds required maintenance by the community to keep them healthy, they were an elegant way of giving monasteries and noble houses access to fresh fish. Some of the more popular species of fish farmed in fish ponds were carp and pike. From the 14th century onward these fish proved to be a popular feature of artificial fish ponds.

Cyclone Aila Severe Cyclonic Storm Aila was the worst natural disaster to affect Bangladesh since Cyclone Sidr in November 2007. The second tropical cyclone of the 2009 North Indian Ocean cyclone season, Aila formed over theBay of Bengal on May 23. A relatively strong tropical cyclone, it caused extensive damage in India and Bangladesh. The storm was responsible for at least 339 deaths across Bangladesh and India; more than 1 million people were left homeless. Health officials in Bangladesh confirmed a deadly outbreak of diarrhea on 29 May, with more than 7,000 people being infected and four dying. In Bangladesh, an estimated 20 million people were at risk of post-disaster diseases due to Aila. Meteorological history Late on May 21, 2009, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center reported that a Tropical Disturbance had persisted about 950 kilometres (590 mi) to the south of Kolkata, in India and had developed within the Southwest Monsoon. Preparations In the Bhola District of Bangladesh, an estimated 500,000 people evacuated to higher areas and shelters as Aila neared landfall. Tourists were advised to stay in their hotels due to the short amount of time to prepare for the storm. Impact Bangladesh Torrential rains from Aila resulted in 190 fatalities and at least 7,000 injuries across the Khulna and Satkhira Districts. Across 11 of the nation's 64 districts, approximately 600,000 thatched homes, 8,800 km (5,500 mi) of roads, 1,000 km (620 mi) of embankments, and 123,000 hectares (300,000 acres) of land were damaged or destroyed. Approximately 9.3 million people were affected by the cyclone, of which 1 million were rendered homeless. One year after the storm, 200,000 people remained homeless.Total damage amounted to 18.85 billion taka (US$269.28 million). More than 400,000 people were reportedly isolated by severe flooding in coastal regions of Bangladesh. Numerous villages were either completely submerged in floodwaters or destroyed. Dozens of people are reportedly missing throughout the country. Astorm surge of 3 m (10 ft) impacted western regions of Bangladesh, submerging numerous villages. Several rivers broke through embankments, causing widespread inland flooding. In Dacope Upazila alone, more than 50,000 people were left homeless. Despite warnings to remain at port, numerous fishing vessels sailed into the storm. Port officials stated that more than 500 fishermen had gone missing since the storm made landfall. In Patuakhali, a dam broke and submerged five villages. Numerous homes were destroyed by the subsequent flooding and tens of thousands of people were left stranded in the villages. In Chandpur, two pontoons sank while docked in port. An estimated 58,950 animals were killed by the storm with up to 50,000 deer missing. On the island of Nizum Dwip, nearly all structures were severely damaged or destroyed, leaving roughly 20,000 people homeless. Environmental impact The Sunderbans,a region which houses 265 of the endangered Bengal tigers, was inundated with 6.1 m (20 ft) of water. Dozens of the tigers are feared to have drowned in Aila's storm surge along with deer and crocodiles. As of 27 May 2009, one tiger has been found alive; it was found in a waterlogged cowshed following the cyclone's landfall. Additionally the forest remains under an estimated 2.4 m (7.9 ft) of water. On 27 May, conservationists have begun a search for the tigers throughout the forest. The search teams were supplied with fresh drinking water for the tigers as their natural water source was inundated with salt water from Aila's storm surge. Aftermath Bangladesh Immediately following the storm, a 33-member team of the Bangladesh Navy was deployed to the affected regions. The Red Cross also quickly responded, supplying water purifying tablets and other relief items. The Deputy Commissioner of Satkhira district allocated ten tonnes of rice and Tk.100,000 (US$1,450) in immediate relief funds for that district. The government later allocated Tk. 1.2 million (US$17,143) and 1,000 tonnes of rice for the affected areas. These amounts further increased to Tk. 12.3 million (US$175,714) and 2,500 tonnes of rice. Five days following the impacts of Aila, the Bangladeshi Health Organization confirmed that a widespread outbreak of diarrhea which has infected over 7,000 people. Another outbreak of water borne diseases, namely dysentery, has infected over 3,000 people. At least two people have been confirmed to have died from diarrhea and two other fatalities were reported. Officials feared that the outbreak would lead to many fatalities in isolated areas that have not received aid and have been without food and clean water for nearly a week.

Gulistan is an over crowded street of Dhaka city in Bangladesh. It means 'Flower Garden', but there are no flower gardens at this place. Several important streets are connected to Gulistan which makes it busy and crowded. The street is full of roadside shops. Thousands of people visit this place for their daily needs. The road is always occupied with traffic and passersby. One of the oldest transports of Dhaka City ‘Tom Tom’ can be seen in this street. There is a shrine right at the middle of the road. It is called “Golap Shah’s Shrine”. Thousands of people show their devotion to this shrine everyday and make donations so that their desire can be fulfilled. There is one major bus stand situated in Gulistan, called the Gulistan (Fulbaria) Bus Station. Most of the buses here are public and the number of buses is very few according to the number of passengers. People often get on top of the bus as there are no longer spaces inside the bus. Some people can be seen hanging at the doorways. Banga (or Bango) Bazar is the prime shopping place here. New and fashionable clothes can be found here with reasonable price. There are hundreds of shops inside the place. The narrow pathways make it hard to roam inside the vicinity. The place is so congested and hot that it is hard to stay long time inside the complex. There used to be a Cinema complex (‘Gulistan Cinema Hall’) here which was one of the oldest architectural monuments. Even though the design was not eye catching and the structure was bizarre, it was one of the modern buildings in Dhaka city. The 11-km-long Gulistan–Jatrabari Flyover was opened in October 2013 to ease traffic jams and reduce travel time from the usual one hour to just five minutes. Osmani Uddyan park, Dhaka City Corporation, Dhaka GPO, Bangabandhu National Stadium, Baitul Mukarram and many other important infrastructures are very close to this street.
