  2. 2. Intro ductio n Bangladesh did not exist as a distinct geographic and ethnic unity untill independence. Bangladesh got its independence on 1971.It had been a part of Indian empire.So,there is a huge influence of indian culture in Bangladeshi culture & tradition.But however Bangladesh also has its rooted culture. In this presentation I will emphasize on Bangladeshi rooted culture and tradition
  3. 3. What is CULTURE ? Characterstics of a perticular group of people,defined by everything from language,religion,cui sine, social habits,music & arts. What is TRADITION? The way of thinking,behaving or doing something that has been used by the people in a perticular group,family,society for a long time. For example: dance,costume,tips,celebra tions,games and others
  4. 4. Difference between culture & tradition Culture Tradition Ideas, customs and social behavior of a particular social group Transmission of customs and beliefs from one generation to another.  can be seen in a social group.  can be even seen in a family.   is created by a particular social group of people, over a period of time.  can be created by individuals.
