The problem with Bangla is that, barely any Bangladeshi speaks the language properly.

The regions we're talking about, they've adopted the language in their own way, and this has happened over hundreds of years. But the thing that surprises all is, even though everyone speaks differently, they all write shudho bangla. Speaking shudho bangla was the case until recently in natoks, but this is changing to bring these natoks to life I guess.

The ONLY other way of learning shudho Bangla, according to my understanding, is by watching Bangladeshi channels. Most importantly, watch Bangla news channels. They're available online, and can be accessed by anybody.

Arnab: I understand your argument. But guiding this boy to learn procholito Bangla ahead of his GCSE exams can be a bit of a disaster...he can't write "korsi khaisi ghumaisi" in his exam.
