PS: what's with the Sunny Diego quip? Chip a bit heavy on the shoulder?
What's with the kneejerk reaction at that comment? Is there something in that comment you didn't like? Thinking a bit much - or may be more than what's necessary?

Come'on guys don't fight please.

Ok back on topic.
  • Put your disguise skills at use and spend a day as mendicant/fakir? Himu-ish...a bit.
  • Climb a taal-gaach, eat tari and taal'er shash watching the stupid movie Taal
  • Helicopter ride over area x
  • Random act of kindness to a poor person. NOT because you can feel better but because of the rewarding joy or smile ..even for a fleet second... on their faces.

Who's fighting? Am I missing something.

Bringing fighting back on topic:

Watch or participate in Bali Khela.

Attend a wedding in rural Bangladesh. Like a pure traditional Bangladeshi wedding devoid of any Indian/Bollywood customs.

I am talking about a tin-shed house with little red banners decorating the front. In the corner of the uthan, cooking is going on in lakri and you can smell the delicious food. Stray dogs are everywhere and trying to get any bones or leftover unused meat. Little children are dressed up in colorful clothes and signs are cut in style or cursive Bangla. On the side, pandel is set up for the guests. It's hard to explain the atmosphere but I have attended few and its truly an unique experience. Its very different from the Dhaka community center weddings.

I'm sure this has already been mentioned, but I went to a jatra in the middle of winter. It was brilliant.

Quiet village...open field, hundreds of people and then the play itself being acted out in the middle of it all. The music, the colors, the ambiance...unforgettable.

Though, I think...this might be a dying art

Wow !
Is that a complex or amphitheater or what ??
I understand the significance of the place but didn't know that there was something built in that specific location.

I'm surprised you guys didn't know of the monument at Meherpur.

This was one of the liberated areas early on in during the liberation war and this is where Tajuddin Ahmed and his cabinet formed the provincial government of Independent Bangladesh.

Meherpur was later renamed as Mujibnagar.

Here is my take on things to do in Bangladesh which is truly a unique experience (not in any order):

- Ride a rickshaw through Dhaka University
- Eating out (might need another post so keepign short): includes Fuchka stand/Juice Bar/Puran Dhaka Specialities and then compare the bill with prices abroad
- Going to a DVD store
- Attending a 1 week full fledged wedding : Mehendi, Wedding, Reception
- Putting flowers at Shaheed Minar on 21 Feb
- Being apart of Qurbani activites (not for faint hearted)
- Watching an ODI with BD in it
- Visiting the ship breaking yard in Chittagong
- Visiting a tea garden
- Riding on top of a bus
- Staying at a village
- Riding the Rocket Steamer
- Walking in the rain
- Trying to drive a rickshaw or a van
- Going into the Sundarbans (on my to do list)
- Sitting at a tea stall on the highway
- Riding on a horse tom tom ride

I don't know why this is in your to do list, passing through the mountain like street breakers which are spread all over DU in rickshaw is not the pleasant thing for me
