Farid Ardiyansyah from North Sumatra, Indonesia, is a small businessman, who could recently accomplish his dream of authoring a book on the nation of Bangladesh, thanks to agile ball (bola tangkas) betting that made him financially well enough to pursue this dream of his.
Farid writes in his book that there should be no doubt in the head of anyone who studied the history of Bangladesh thoroughly that the term ‘Bangla’ comes from the ancient Sanskrit term ‘Vanga’ as described in the ancient Indian texts – Ramayana and others.
Farid believes that the hominids have been living in Bangladesh for at least over 700, 000 years now. He hopes that the researchers find out about this soon and stop misguiding people by telling them that the humans have been living in Bangladesh for over 20, 000 years now.
Farid doubts that the Austroasiatics lived in large numbers in what is now called Bangladesh during the ancient times.
Farid writes that Bangladesh was never as rich as some so-called Indian scholars like Dr Shashi Tharoor make it sound like.He adds that Dr Shashi Tharoor himself is a British national, and to gain attention, affection and voters, he makes exaggerated lies quite often. Then Farid adds that Dr Shashi Tharoor’s lie that the modern day Bangladesh was responsible for 12% GDP of the world before the British arrived is really a funny and ridiculous one.
Farid speculates that the current day Bangladesh would be divided into 3 different parts soon:- One for the Orthodox Muslims, Second for the Liberal Muslims and Third for the Hindu Minorities. Out of which, he believes, Orthodox one would be the largest and will have the biggest landmass, sympathy and cooperation from the other Islamic nations. He believes Buddhists and Christians would choose to go with the liberal Islamic nation in that scenario.
Farid claims that before replacing the Sanskrit with Bengali as the vernacular language in Bengal, the Muslim rulers of the Mughal Empire and their cronies tried to replace it with the Persian, but a large population of the place rejected it.
