Farmers of Bangladesh

Bangladesh is an agricultural country. About eighty percent of our total population are farmers. Farmers are the life of our nation. They supply food for us. They are self-employed. In this way they are solving our unemployment problem. They are leading an important role of our economic but they live under the poverty level. The food grains they produce are essential for us but they don’t have good food, shelter or cloths. They are honest, sincere, simple and gentle. They struggle hard to live their life. Poverty is their constant companion.  They are God fearing. They accept it without complaint to God. Hardship of their life not dried up their smile, kindness, love, affection and sympathy. Sometimes they are seen working all over the night. For refreshing or forgetting their tiredness or pains a they sing melodious song like Baul song, Bhatiali, Bhawaiya, Marfuti murshidi. It makes our environment charming. Even they are poor, they are very nice and hospitable. If you ask for a glass of water, they will bring it and often with something extra to go with the water.
The farmers arrange a party for getting new crops. This party called as ‘Nobanno Utshob’ (Festival of foods made by new paddy). In this party the farmers welcome their neighbors and guests by chira, murri and many kinds of pittha (home made cakes). In this way they celebrate their ‘Nobanno Utshob’.
