Bengali, or Bangla, is an Indo-Aryan language spoken predominantly in Bangladesh and in the Indian states of West Bengal and Tripura by approximately 200 million people. After Hindi, Bengali is the second most spoken language in the Indian subcontinent, and among the top 10 most spoken languages in the world. The language has a rich literary heritage and underwent a renaissance in the late 19th century.

The Bengali-to-Latin transliteration scheme is the one followed in the English Wikipedia and can be seen here.

যদি এই বইটা সম্পাদনা করতে চান, ভালো ইংরেজি ব্যাকরণ জানেন আর অভ্র দিয়ে টাইপ করেন (ও জা বাংলা কিবোর্ড আপনার আছে)। বাজে দেকতে যখন মনে হয়ে যে বাংলা মানুষরা কোন ভাষা জানে না।
