First I am not Indian. Secondly the old timers on this forum know my views and my attitude. I have no issues with Walton in particular or BD in general. More power to both of them. My issue is that some Bangladeshi posters tend to hype up everything about BD, it’s economy and business. Reality is a little different especially when ones sees the pervasive and abject poverty in BD, which doesn’t sync up with with the hype. You guys write about Walton as if it is the next Samsung. BD’s success is based on low cost garment production and garment business is all about the lowest production cost. This business is very sensitive to even slightest change in production cost and shifts continuously. So I would be a little conservative in popping the Champagne bottle. Same issue with the Indians. Indian and BDs GDP are grossly inflated.

Would you like some pepper with all that salt?

It is silly for either Pakistanis or Indians to think that BD is a country like them.

Unlike their countries, BD is a homogenous unitary country with an all powerful central government and next to no ethnic issues.

The only reason that they have living standards comparable to BD is that they had a 24 year headstart in independence as otherwise BD would be appreciably richer than both of them.

Anyway BD sees neither as any sort of be benchmark and should set it's sights on countries such as Indonesia now as it has passed both of them in terms of nominal per capita GDP now.
BDeshis really hardworking ppl.

His real name is Vishwaman.
You Bangladeshis are funny, I deal with Bangladeshis every day going to work and returning and I am a good tipper, so I am contributing to BD's economy. Please show some respect.

You guys are on a Pakistani forum but you still think you live in East Pakistan. There are options available on the forum, which you can use to figure out my nationality in 30 seconds.

A Japanese engineer was talking to me about this what you say Head Bobbling of the Indians. He was telling me, I still do not understand if it is a 'Yes' or a 'No' when they move their heads to answer a question. He was in India on a construction mission of a big chemical project.

I have seen this phenomenon in Japan when I talked to Indian kitchen boys here. I am not sure if it is a "yes" or a "No". Only an impoverished Indian can answer it.
I can answer it :laugh:

It is more prominent among South Indians.. especially those from the deep south. It does not mean yes or no.. it means 'I understand what you are trying to tell me'. :cheers:

What about GDP per capita in constant prices? :pop:

More evidence that you are Indian, Vishwaman. Tipping is commonplace in the US or even in BD, nothing to brag about.
But the cheapskate in you just can't get used to living with it hence you keep referring to it.

I don't routinely deal with people looking down their noses at people and waste time with them, but what the hell - I'll take the bait.

You do realize there is Ashraf and Atraf in every country (if you are insistent on that concept) and your pent-up desire to paint a whole nation as Atraf is a massive fail in every sense of the word. If this psychosis makes you feel better then keep on being that way - no one else cares.

Projection of inner insecurities...

Ashraf and Atraf is reflected in people's behavior and your behavior and axe-grinding amply shows who you are.

If you don't like non-Pakistanis interacting on this forum - then why don't you ask the mods, they'll clarify this for you I'm sure.

@The Eagle and @WebMaster bhais, what do we tell this guy... this subject is coming up too much nowadays. Maybe we should clarify. :-)

I also think we should thank this gentlemen for totally hijacking the thread now.

Good luck to Walton. The US is a tough market to crack, but associating with Danby will help matters. If the brand is accepted, Walton can sell directly.

Who the fook do you think you are?

Polluting this thread with your false sense of superiority.

Paying good tips to prop up the BD economy?

Are you for real?

Bengalis can call out other Bengali’s for that type of false bravado.

Not you.

I was going to say that if he is going to a restaurant where desis are waiters, then his auqaat and class is clear.

For places I eat at - the waiters/waitresses are all whites. :-)

Not that it matters.

I don't think there was ever any bravado bandied about (certainly not from my side and/or from others in Bangladesh section).

Certainly not against Pakistanis. Now we may have "corrected" the usual Sanghi Indian Shupapawa bravado, so there is that.

Facts are what they are...for some people good news in some country like Bangladesh (whom they have a hatred for) is not palatable.

That is (again) a personal problem no one can help with.

If your mentality is so low that you see negativity in everything and not the good side of anything - then it is sad.

The fact that Bangladesh is doing a bit better than before cannot be bad news for Pakistanis or Indians. There are plenty of opportunities in Bangladesh for citizens of those countries to participate in (whether for trade, education, jobs or of any other kind). Bangladesh is wide open for business.

For some malcontents - an axe to grind is just a constant need.

I am going to "ignore" this guy - had enough of his BS.

"I have nothing against Bengali's but"

They have nothing against us, providing we're beneath them.

I mean come on, it's not like there's no historic pretense for such attitudes?

Keeping others down is the only way certain people cope with their miserable underachieving lives.

Keep yapping, it's not like you'll ever achieve anything

People have mouths - they will pass opinions.

If I had a dollar every time I got someone's useless uninvited "opinion" about what Bangladesh and Bangladeshis are capable of, I'd be a rich man by now.

None of the improvements that happened in Bangladesh over the last fifty years happened because someone did us a favor or gave us a handout, they happened because Bangladeshis kept an objective in front of them and worked toward it. Even being exploited and f*cked over constantly by Indians every year.

But puffery and hubris is the last thing we want as a country.

The British planted the seeds of hate among subcontinentals of differing extractions, and some still can't get out of these hate principles. Totally stupid. Some folks just can't be helped.

Don't pay attention to negative people - they are never an asset to themselves or their own countries.

The majority of Pakistani and Indian posters here are very positive and supportive of Bangladesh' development efforts.

That guy who hijacked the thread had issues with Pakistanis in PDF since day one he got here. Which was ten years ago.

Right @MastanKhan bhai? :lol:

Just a regular malcontent.
