Bangladesh is country which is a melting pot of races. Therefore, it has a mixed and contaminated culture. Bangladeshi culture is influenced by three great religions- Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam in successive order, with Islam having the most pervading and lasting impact. Like a colorful montage, the cultural tradition of our country is a happy blending of many variants, unique in diversity but in essence greatly symmetrical.
