Tip Your Hit to the Bengali Language for International Mother Language Day

On February 21, 1952, forming part of a movement promoting the Bengali language, numerous activists and students were martyred in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Following that atrocity, UNESCO decided to honor those who lost their lives through International Mother Language Day. 

Bengali is the seventh most spoken language by about 215 million people worldwide as a first or second language. Bengali is the official language of a few Indian states and Bangladesh and, including West Bengal, Tripura, and Assam. It is the second-largest spoken language in India. Interestingly, it is also an official language of Sierra Leone commemorating the over 5000 Bangladeshi soldiers who participated in the Peacekeeping Force.

Gender is not defined in the Bengali language. The grammar of the language has no gender; there is no gendered noun in the Bengali language, which makes it very easy to pick up the language as a newcomer. A Bengali student will be able to understand many basic words, their structures, and usage in a short time. The writing and word-formation are also easy compared to other languages.
