The people from the Origin of Bangladesh. These people are from Eastern part of South Asia. They speak Bangla/Bengali. They are mixed with various races, the most significant one is the mongoloid. Believe it or not, its true. That's why many Bengalis from Bangladesh have a very round face with high cheek bones, flat noses, small or chinky eyes, full lips, black strong hair, very short. Bengalis usually have a tan, or a very light brown color. Some do have a more tanned yellow skin. Many Bengalis look Filipino, Malaysian, Cambodian, Hispanic, Indian, Nepalese, Indonesian, and such. This proves that we have mongoloid blood in us. The main religion of Bangladesh is Muslim, Hinduism, and Buddhism. Many Bengalis like hip hop and pop music. The girls love Kpop (Korean Pop) music now and so do some guy but they prefer more of English music such as rap or rock. A significant amount of Bengalis live in Japan, South Korea, USA, and Malaysia.

people coming from bangladesh. THEY AREN'T THE SAME AS INDIAN PEOPLE. WE ARE ALSO OF MONGOLIAN DECENT. WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT, THAT'S THE TRUTH. bengalis are also more oriental looking than indian people in general, if you've noticed. 3 out of 5 of the nobel prize winners from the indian subcontinent/southern asia are bengali. bengalis as a mass are very deep thinkers, though not the most athletic. they are a rather close knit community, and even fought against the pakistani army (which had tanks, while bengalis had spears) to keep their language.
