We’re erasing South-Asian civilization with our obsession with the West. We use English words in our conversations to sound “internationally smart” (or however they want to sound). Some use really bad English just for the sake of it. I myself don’t know good Bangla and yet I was about to say these people should be made to stand on the gallows. I just learnt this word “gallows“. And the thing I wrote about being made to stand on gallows is extreme, forget that part.
I think I am a patriot, like I will have our flags flapping furiously…in some places.
Well. I hate it … I get that it’s an international language, but how are we to conserve out nationality that way? We need to f*cking lay down the rule of speaking “nationally” on media . We can’t let our history disappear.
But these “internationally national” guys are forming a cult of demons playing “international” harps to please the ears (ew, ears?) of their peers . Thanks a lot. We are losing the language our ascendants shed a sea of blood for. I am mad people can’t take pride in their own language. This ass trend needs to stop.
Bangladesh is relatively obscure from the public. It’s sad. I was wondering about putting our flag in the blog’s widget captioning, “This is Bangladesh’s flag and you should know that.” Seriously! Almost everyone can tell what the flag of the Yanks and the Brits looks like. Even us!
Why you ignore Bangladesh? It’s Bangladesh. It’s my country; I blog from this place among the pitiable shambles of this developing-country (but you aren’t giving our language a chance on the media!)
