If you are doing well, Good congrats! I'm sincerely happy for any S. Asian nation that does well. If you are truly doing good and feeling so insecure that you have to compare yourself to India because of your hubris, you get smaller than you actually are..

We do not like to see India as our benchmark for comparison. I only compared BD to India here as it's a thread about BD opened by an Indian. When a country needs to compare itself to India then something is seriously wrong with said country.

China till 80s was in a similar state but turned around its path by making sports a part of its culture. It was able to do that due to a different governance system that can’t be replicated in other countries that easily.
For Communist nations Sports/Olympics was always part of the nation culture

The Govt notion behind this was a sport culture in the nation promotes a healthy population
The healthy population in turn provide good soldiers

Also for propaganda purpose both domestic and external that Communist nation's people are physically superior and victorious compared to their opponents

How is it same? Does your Olympic team have more gov officials than athletes? So what is it, a team of 500 with 126 athletes? Else you cannot say it's the same.
Well our total contingent number was 228 out of which 126 were athletes while the rest are support staff. It's not uncommon for countries to send a good number of support staff...particularly when their whole contingent is numbered under 20

You don't even read things you yourself quoted. Don't be in a rush mate.

Bangladesh has other priorities quite honestly since 1971.

Also, for our Indian friends.

So you utterly failed at the Olympics and now to make yourselves feel better you're pointing to a country in a worst off situation ?

India has 8 times the population of Bangladesh. It's GDP is much larger and India sent several times more athletes.

You're only making your own country look worse by doing this. You're only showing off your own inferiority complex.

did my post talk about competing with China...stay on topic or leave

How so? It is not us who are comparing, imagine having 0 medals and opening threads belittling India’s achievements.
