Why does Bangladesh have a special relationship with India?

The region that is now Bangladesh was once part of the Indian province of Bengal. Later, when India was divided into India and Pakistan, it was known as East Pakistan. Bangladesh came into being only in 1971,when the two parts of Pakistan split, after a bitter war in which India played a major role in helping Bangladesh become independent. Most of Bangladesh is very low lying, flat land. It is one ofthe most densely populated regions in the world. The two great rivers, the Ganges and the Brahmaputra meet here, to form a maze of waterways that make up the world's largest delta. As a result, Bangladesh is prone to frequent floods that cause great damage.

Facts about Bangladesh

Area: total: 144 ,000 sq km land: 133 ,910 sq km water: 10 ,090 sq km
Background: Europeans began to set up trading posts in the area of Bangladesh in the 16th century; eventually the British came to dominate the region and it became part of British India. In 1947 , West Pakistan and East Bengal (both primarily Muslim) separated from India (largely Hindu) and jointly became the new country of Pakistan. East Bengal became East Pakistan in 1955 , but the awkward arrangement of a two-part country with its territorial units separated by 1 ,600 km left the Bengalis marginalized and dissatisfied. East Pakistan seceded from its union with West Pakistan in 1971 and was renamed Bangladesh. A military-backed caretaker regime suspended planned parliamentary elections in January 2007 in an effort to reform the political system and root out corruption; the regime has pledged new democratic elections by the end of 2008. About a third of this extremely poor country floods annually during the monsoon rainy season , hampering economic development.
