Thanks for publishing about Bangladesh so nicely. It's really an honor for us. Because I'm from Bangladesh. And this site is very good with these kind of stuffs. Thanking you for your website. One thing I would like to mention, the information you're giving that is wrong, I guess. The land area of Bangladesh, at present it is 1,47,610 sq km (56,990 sq mi)The country has an area of 147,610 square kilometres (56,990 sq mi) and extends 820 kilometres (510 mi) north to south and 600 kilometres (370 mi) east to west. Bangladesh is bordered on the west, north, and east by a 4,095 kilometres (2,545 mi) land frontier with India and, in the southeast, by a short land and water frontier (193 kilometres (120 mi)) with Burma (Myanmar). On the south is a highly irregular deltaic coastline of about 580 kilometres (360 mi), fissured by many rivers and streams flowing into the Bay of Bengal. Hope it'll be corrected. Thanks again.
