Bangladesh has a mixed and variety of culture enriched by its ancient animist, Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim roots. Weaving, pottery and terracotta sculpture are some of the earliest forms of artistic expression. The best known literature of Bangladesh is the work of the great Bengali poets Rabindranath Tagore and the national poet Kazi Nasrul Islam. Among modern writers Humayun Ahmed is prominent. He is a versatile genius regarding novel, short story, television drama, movie and song.  

Folk theatre is widely seen at the village level and usually takes place during harvest time or at village fairs. There are many folk dances, but classical dance is largely borrowed from Indian models. Muslims and Hindus live here in relative harmony. Buddhists today form only a tiny minority of the population. 

Muslim festivals follow a lunar calendar. They observe fasting during the month of Ramadan, then comes the Eid-ul-fitar- the largest religious festival of Muslims. At the full moon 14 days before the start of Ramadan, Shab-e-Barat is a sacred night when alms and sweets are distributed to the poor. Hindu festivals follow a different calendar but they generally fall at much the same date each year. The Holi Festival or Festival of Colours, commonly known as the spring festival, is celebrated in the first week of March. Durga Puja is celebrated during October, and statues of the goddess astride a lion, with her ten hands holding ten different weapons, are placed in every Hindu temple.

Rice is the staple food of the people. A typical Bangladeshi meal consists of beef (or sometimes mutton, chicken, fish or egg) and vegetables cooked in a hot spicy sauce, yellow watery lentils (dal) and plain rice. Fish is part of the staple diet; however, over-fishing has led to a scarcity of river fish and more sea fish are appearing on menus. Alcoholic drinks are not widely available or accepted because of religious constraint.
