Talk Talk Talk... It's Genuine!
The Bangladeshi people I met are VERY genuine and truly are interested in you. I read a tip here on VT that they'd walk into your hotel room and wouldn't leave - just to keep chatting with you. Well, it happened to me and while strange by American standards they have a real interest in who you are and want to share their culture with you. So don't be freaked out when they walk in and wont leave. It means they like you and now I have lifelong friends in Bangladesh!
I was living in Sri Lanka when I went to Dhaka so I jumped straight from one cricket crazy nation to another. Unlike one-time world champions Sri Lanka though, Bangladesh have taken it up quite recently and with rather less success so far!
In 2000 the Bangladesh 'Tigers' became the 11th official Test-playing nation. Since then they've played 20 one-day internationals and 26 Test matches... and haven't won a single one! They did technically manage a draw against the West Indies but only because it got rained off. Sorry guys but more like pussycats than tigers at the moment!
I'd love to be in Dhaka when they do finally win though, as all these losses haven't dampened the local enthusiasm for the sport and it's played by pretty much everyone, pretty much everywhere.
Maynamati War Cemetery, Comilla
Before the war (i.e. WWII) Maynamati was a hamlet of a few dozen huts, but during the war a large military camp was established there as the war came as close as Myanmar (Burma). Several ordnance depots and a number of military hospitals, both British and Indian, were in the area, including Nos. 14 and 150 British General Hospitals; and the majority of the burials in Maynamati War Cemetery were from the various hospitals. Graves from isolated places in the surrounding country, and some from as far afield as Burma, were moved into the cemetery by the Army Graves Service and later on by the Commission; and it was found necessary to transfer also graves from small cemeteries at Dhaka, Faridpur, Paksey, Saidpur, Santahar and Sirajganj where they could not be maintained. The cemetery was started by the Army and laid out by the garrison engineer. It is dominated by a small flat-topped hill crowned with indigenous flowering and evergreen trees. Between the entrance and this hill lie the Christian graves, and on the far side of it are the Muslim graves. There is a separate section where lies the graves of unidentified soldiers. On a terrace about half-way up the hill, facing the entrance, stands the Cross of Sacrifice, and on the other side a shelter looks over the Muslim graves to a tree-framed view of the countryside beyond. There are now over 700, 1939-45 war casualties commemorated in this cemetery. Everyday profile of a dead solider is kept open in turns from the registry book at the entrance.
In this cemetery lie the bodies of British, African, Indian, Australian and Japanese. the lands in Bangladesh occupied as Commonwealth War Cemeteries were assured in perpetuity to the Imperial War Graves Commission, under the British Commonwealth and Empire, by the Government of Bangladesh.
The cemetery, a kilometre down the road leading from Comilla to Sylhet and nine kilometres from the railway station, is a short distance past the Comilla Cantonment Military Hospital.
