    Did the Bengali language go through changes after the partition?..maybe more Hindi influence in India vs Arabic influence in Bangladesh affecting intelligibility.

    What are various genetics-based(endogamous) ethnic groups in Bangladesh? From all the data in G25 etc, they are all lumped together as this generic "Bangladesh-Bangladeshi" as if they're all the same ethnic group. There has to be non-income/status based endogamous units, right? If not, bravo! And absolutely incredible for a very highly populous country.

    Seriously...why do Bengalis like fish so much? I get that it's a coastal region but then again so is much of South Asia while lacking the same emphasis on fish. Is it due to the river delta?

    Malayalis love their fish too... it's a staple in tropical regions where the sea tide/winds are strong and there are backwaters/deltas.

    Goans and some parts of Tamil Nadu and Orissa heavily consume fish too.

    Sea is right there with huge source of food, so it would be crazy not to.

    Not sure how common it was for other Nepali villages, but both side of my family's villages consumed fish (wild from the streams/rivers) much more than meat from wild fowls/mammals. I assume both wild-sourced fish/meat was a-okay per Hindu religion(atleast manusmriti which dictated the way of life back then).

    In Nepal? Thats pretty far inland...guess it's just hard for me to imagine anyone preferring fish to animal meat, especially if there isnt abundant fish like there is in a coastal area. It is not appetizing to me at all(no offense to any fish enthusiasts).

    I prefer fish over any other protein. Maybe fish is an acquired taste lol
