Bangladesh village game game – ‘Bangladesh’s only game that is fun, not violent’
A village game in Bangladesh’s tribal areas of Jhalabhat and Banjul is getting a lot of attention from locals after being described as the only one of its kind in the country.
The game was first announced by the National Game Centre in 2013 and was played by the local community in a communal setting for over five years before it was brought into the national game.
The game is now widely available across the country, but in a tribal area it is still rare.
The team behind the game is based in Dhaka and have been running it since 2014.
The tribe of about 100 families in Banjuls tribal area of Jhalkur village game is currently playing it at a campground.
Its aim is to build community cohesion by ensuring everyone is playing together and ensuring the games is enjoyable.
“We want to create a positive atmosphere and encourage people to participate in games.
We are also trying to ensure that our game is not a dangerous one and that people play in the right spirit,” said Sajjad Ahmed, a member of the tribal community and a village elder.
The tribal game is played in communal areas to ensure everyone plays in a positive spirit, according to Ahmed.
“It is very important for us to keep the game in communal environment.
People play together and enjoy each other’s games.
The people who play here are the ones who bring good cheer and entertainment to the games,” he said.
The villagers in BanJul village game are also getting more support from the local government and from the national capital.
The tribal game was developed under the leadership of Dr Abdul Hameed, a professor in the department of game studies and a game expert.
The project was started after he was made aware of the growing interest in tribal games, said Dr Abdul, adding that the project has been funded by the tribal village centre and a national grant.
“The project was launched in March 2016 and it has already received over Rs 50,000.
We have also been getting some funding from the Ministry of Home Affairs for the project, which has also gone up,” he added.
According to Dr Abdul he is hoping to bring the game to Bangladesh by the end of this year.
The village game was made to be played by a single group of players, who could also have families, so it could be played in groups of up to five people, he said, adding it was not an official game in the tribal area.
