Let us take a look into what the Bangladeshi blogs around the world are saying lately.
* Culture: Shapps posts his thoughts about the verdict of a British court against a Bangladeshi woman who was convicted for shaking her child violently to cure it from 'evil spirits'.
* Cricket: Bangladeshis are crazy about cricket. They were all cheering when Bangladesh put the world champion Australia on back foot in a recent test but did lose the game eventually. Mezba writes how some Bangladeshis resorted to superstition to bring luck to their favor.
* Economy: Shafiur discusses the political economy of investment in Bangladesh highlighting the case of Niko.
* Podcast: Joe at Bongo Vongo posts readings of English translations of two short stories of Rabindranath Tagore as podcasts: - 'The Hungry Stones' & 'The Victory'.
* Painting: Kazi Rubaiat Imam posts a link to an interview with Hashem Khan, Master artist of Bangladesh, who happens to be his teen idol.
* Identity: Nashat gives her thoughts on the clash of religion and identity.

Shafiur posts some questions and answers on why the recent pre-election violences in Dhaka are causing much chaos in Bangladesh.
* Politics: The Bangladeshi blogosphere erupted with reactions when journalist blogger Tasneem Khalil revealed that the Bangladesh government has spent a lot to 3 US PR lobbyists to improve its image and a recent report on Bangladesh in the TIME magazine was the fruit of that effort.
* Human rights: Mash criticizes the strategy of war against terror. Citing the recent police brutality on journalists during Australia-Bangladesh cricket match, he comments that as long as Governments in the third world continue to terrorize their citizens the environment that creates violence will not cease.
* Language: Adda posts an eye opener- 'half of the world's 6000 languages are in danger of disappearing in just a few generations', while discussing on the Mother Language Day.
* Entertainment: Razib Rashedin reviews the movie 'Khela Ghor (Dolls house)' and rates it as one of the best Bangla movie he has seen in recent days.
