History
Bengali is part of the South Asian subcontinent, one of the world's ancient peoples. The Bangladesh region has seen the establishment of an independent state several times over; its territory once included the current Indian West Bengal, Bihar, and other states. By the 16th century, Bangladesh had developed into the most densely populated part of the sub-continent, with the most developed economy and most cultural prosperous part of the region. In the second half of the 18th century, Bengladesh was a province of British India. After the 1947 partition of India, Bangladesh was divided into Eastern and Western parts, with the Eastern part going to Pakistan and the Western part going to India. In March 1971, East Pakistan declared independence, and, in January 1972, established the People's Republic of Bangladesh.

Economic and Cultural Customs
Bangladesh's economy is dominated by agriculture. The main crops are rice, wheat, woven, cotton, sugar, and paper. Bangladesh is the home of jute. Jute fibers produce a long, flexible and shiny fiber, said to be the "golden fiber." Bengladesh's production accounts for 75% to 80% of the total world production of jute.
