The land in which one live is dear to him. Like others I have a country of my own. The name of my country is Bangladesh. It became Independent on the 16th December, 1971. Bangladesh is a small country. Its land area is about 1,47,570 square kilometers. Most of the people are Muslims. But people of other religions live here in peace. There are sixty four districts in our country. Bangladesh is an agricultural country. Its main crops are rice, jute, tea, sugarcane etc. Many kinds of fruits also grow here. Jackfruit, mangoes, bananas, pineapples, guavas etc. are the main fruits. Dhaka is the capital of Bangladesh. I love my country very much. But it has a large population of about 150 million. Bangladesh is a wonderful country. I feel proud that I am an inhabitant of this country.
