About Bangla Blogs ~ Blog Directory

A backgrounder on Bangla blogs

Blogs in Bangla have been around since and the first noted Bangla blog was authored by Saukanya Mazumdar. She and Debashish, the founder of this directory, also write the first ever primer on staring a Bangla blog at blogger.com using Unicode. The tutorial written in English as well as Bangla has since helped many bloggers to jump-start to Bangla blogging. If you want to start a Bangla blog of your own, this is the place you must start with.


Bangla Ready Reckoner

Bangla or Bengali is an Indo-European language spoken by the populations in the Indian state of West Bengal and the neighboring country of Bangladesh. There are also significant Bengali-speaking communities in Assam (another Indian state also neighbouring West Bengal and Bangladesh) and in immigrant populations in the West and the Middle East.

Bengali is an English word referring to both the language and the people speaking the language; in Bengali the language is called Bangla and the people are called Bangali. The traditional area of habitation of Bengali peoples is called Bengal in English and Bongo in Bengali. The region is now broken into two fragments, the western part, West Bengal (or Poshchim-Bongo) being a state in India and the eastern part, Bangladesh (East Bengal or PurboBongo) being an independent country.

Bengali is usually written in the Bengali script. This is a Brahmic script, very similar to the Devanagari used for Hindi and Sanskrit. Each base symbol represents a syllable, and other symbols can be added to change (or suppress) the vowel of that syllable. Consonant clusters are often indicated by ligating two symbols.
