BANGLADESH - গণপ্রজাতন্ত্রী বাংলাদেশ

Bangladesh বাংলাদেশ, pronounced: [ˈbaŋlad̪eʃ] , lit. "The land of Bengal"), officially the People's Republic of Bangladesh (গণপ্রজাতন্ত্রী বাংলাদেশ Gônôprôjatôntri Bangladesh), is a country in South Asia, bordered by India and Myanmar, at the apex of the Bay of Bengal. It is separated from Nepal and Bhutan by the narrow Siliguri Corridor. It is the world's eighth most populous country and the ninety-third largest country by area, making it one of the most densely populated nations on Earth.  The official language is Bengali, which is also spoken in the neighboring Indian states of West Bengal and Tripura. Dominated by the fertile Bengal delta, Bangladesh is rich in biodiversity and is home to the world's largest mangrove forest, a mountainous east and a 600 km  coastline that has one of the world's longest beaches.



These two beautiful covers sent by my good friend Sumanto Kumar from Rajshahi GPO in Bangladesh. He is a cover collector too. The covers posted on July 14, 2015 and received on July 31, 2015. Thank You Sumanto for the beautiful covers.

These nice covers sent by Sumanto from Bangladesh, my another cover collector friend. He did a very good job by requesting for perfect postmarks from GPO, while sending the covers back to me. We cannot expect a perfect postmark from bangladesh if we drop the letters into post boxes. He added additional postage on the backside of the cover. Thank You Sumanto for the big help.
