Most nations around the globe strive on duel identities. For instance, when one talks about the United States, it is known as the melting pot. So, when it comes to Bangladesh, the alias is 'food nation.' Food is everywhere; even in the most dingy corner of Bangladesh one is likely to find the best food. Well, lets just say, the more unhygienic and 'gooey' the better it strikes the taste buds. The variety of street food is endless. The mouth-watering yet extra-fattening street-side tehari or kichuri is an option for many students who are known as the 'rice-lovers.' While, the extra spicy, 'morich lovers' can go for all kinds of street munchies including the soggy Bangladeshi version of bhelpuri, jhalmuri or even the delectable water-borne disease free-seasonal fruit aam (mangoes) or pyara (guavas) makha.
