Publishing this in case someone wants to add or correct anything :))
Primary school education is compulsory for those aged 6-10 by the Compulsory Primary Education Act in 1990 but often times children do not get access to schools and are put into work often underage as a means to support their family or themselves even though laws have been in place to restrict child labor. It goes both ways because as much as child labor sucks, without working the kids and their families will not make enough money to survive, which is also reflective of the fact that Bangladesh doesnt have a good social security system. So basically there are gov schools for this but there also exist private schools and madrasas as well. More info (x) (x)
I’m uncertain as to what you would like to know about technology could you expand a bit more please.
Well since I come from a Muslim background i can only comment on that section of the community. Overall what i’ve noticed is that most people arent really deeply rooted to praying and it’s become an individualistic commitment towards Allah, so whilst people are Muslims, they might not be doing the 5 prayers a day. it’ll depend from person to person and their level of spirituality i guess.
Overall I think it depends on the person. Most women when out in public will wear a range of clothing from burqas to saris and salwar kameez to shirts/pants. But i think many have chosen to be more selective with what they wear due to the amount of harassment that they might face from random guys out in public, and also with the recent unrest with extremist political parties, many people have dressed more conservatively. But also it depends on class as well as any special occasions. Mostly have to dress modestly so as not to offend elders and uphold certain societal values. For guys though,they can get away with wearing anything: lungi, shirt, suit, pant, idk whatever they feel like it basically.

ps. i think it’s pretty important to tell people about the ‘71 Liberation War as most people outside of Bangladesh are hardly educated about it.
