#AboutMyCulture Challenge

@aaronli: Hi Steemians, I am grateful to be the first guest host of a @sndbox challenge! This challenge is all about cultural storytelling. A culture is full of stories. Every town, city and nation has treasured narratives about the people and places within it. Culture is the glue that helps to create the communities that we are all a part of. So, Steemians, would you like to introduce your community to us? What about your city? This challenge is a great place to start!

The #aboutmyculture challenge is meant to encourage all Steemians to learn more about one another through the blockchain we are all connected to. With this challenge, I encourage you to share a story from home. @sndbox will sponsor this challenge and all upvote prizes.

Challenge Topics & Example Ideas

Participants are encouraged to choose a single topic and share the story behind it. The topic must be related to your local culture. This “topic” could be a festival, local custom, unique food, local art, architecture, or something in nature.

Here’s an example:

Bamboo scaffolding in my hometown; Hong Kong. Focusing on bamboo, I would share the story of the art, history, technique and how it is a signature of my community. Here’s a great example from @prch who is introducing this unique construction style: https://steemit.com/cn/@prch/bamboo-scaffolding-in-hong-kong-construction

Dear @sndbox Our culture is written here.

 What is your cultural topic? 

 We are native to Bengali culture and we are born Bengali because of our cultural Bengali.  

 Why did your choose it?

 After birth, we hear the first Bengali language from mother's mouth. Mother brought us in Bangla language and made our life involved with Bengali culture. We have been teaching our parents since we were born, we are residents of Bengali culture. I am proud of myself as a citizen of Bengali culture. 

What makes it special to you and your local culture?

 There are many rituals and cultural shows in our Bengali culture. Our Bengali culture has a lot of importance in First Boishakh.We celebrate Pahela Boishakh with great pleasure. Our parents teach us rituals through many of our cultural festivals.We celebrate Hilsa fish and panta rice in the morning of Pahela Baishakh. First Boishakh is a very important event for Bengali culture. First Boishakh is an important event for our nation which we celebrate with great pleasure. This festival is a festival of Bengali origin.This is the first festival of Baisakh, which is considered to be a very important festival for Bengali culture.
