  1. From my experiences of traveling to Bangladesh – okay, mainly to Dhaka and Chittagong – I’d say that there is a goodwill toward India.

    The people who had seen or participated in their 1971 liberation struggle ans seen the suffering and extreme privations that it brought upon, are superannuated or dead. The feelings of gratitude or thankfulness deteriorate organically over time. But then, there are lots of cultural bonding, including the sharing of a common language with a couple of states in India.

    There is a lot of people-to-people interaction in formal and border trade, lots of Bangladeshis migrate to India is search of work and find assimilation easy in our open society. These are factors, rather than grand media announcements, that build a strong bond.

    Bangladeshis by and large are quite liberal in their outlook. There are almost no political issues to sully the atmosphere. On the contrary, the Indian govt discretely helps wherever required.
