  • Bengalen (bengalisch বাংলা/বঙ্গ : Bānglā/Bôngô) bezeichnet eine geografische Region im Nordosten des indischen Subkontinents mit wechselvoller Geschichte. Im heutigen Sprachgebrauch wird darunter meist das bengalische Sprachgebiet verstanden, während die Grenzen der Region nicht klar definiert sind. Historisch (zur Zeit der britischen Kolonialherrschaft) wurden auch angrenzende Teile von Bihar, Jharkhand und Odisha zu Bengalen gezählt. Nach der Teilung Bengalens 1947 im Zuge der Unabhängigkeit Indiens von der britischen Kolonialherrschaft entstanden auf dem Gebiet Indiens die indischen Bundesstaaten Westbengalen und Tripura, im östlichen Teil entstand 1971 der Staat Bangladesch. Die äußerst fruchtbare, steinlose Schwemmlandregion ist Namensgeber für den südlich gelegenen Golf von Bengalen, ein Randmeer des Indischen Ozeans. (de)

  • Bengal (/bɛnˈɡɔːl, bɛŋ-/ ben(g)-GAWL; Bengali: বাংলা/বঙ্গ, romanized: Bānglā/Bôngô, pronounced [ˈbɔŋgo]) is a geopolitical, cultural and historical region in South Asia, specifically in the eastern part of the Indian subcontinent at the apex of the Bay of Bengal, predominantly covering present-day Bangladesh and the Indian state of West Bengal. Geographically, it is made up by the Ganges-Brahmaputra delta system, the largest river delta in the world, along with mountains in its north bordering the Himalayan states of Nepal and Bhutan, and east bordering Myanmar. Politically, Bengal is divided into Bangladesh to the east and the Indian state of West Bengal. In the past, at the time of the Bengal Sultanate and colonial period, this area included the states of modern-day Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, Assam, Tripura, Mizoram, Meghalaya, Nagaland, and Manipur in India, and some parts of Myanmar or Burma (Rakhine State). In 2011, the population of Bengal was estimated to be 250 million, making it one of the most densely populated regions in the world. Among them, an estimated 160 million people live in Bangladesh and 91.3 million people live in West Bengal. The predominant ethnolinguistic group is the Bengali people, who speak the Indo-Aryan Bengali language. Bengali Muslims are the majority in Bangladesh, and Bengali Hindus are the majority in West Bengal. The area was divided during partition of India, initially between India and East Pakistan. Outside this region, the Indian state of Tripura and Assam's Barak Valley have a Bengali-majority population, which also has a significant presence in the states of Arunachal Pradesh, Delhi, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Uttarakhand. Dense woodlands, including hilly rainforests, cover Bengal's northern and eastern areas; while an elevated forested plateau covers its central area. Highest elevation point of this region is Sandakphu (3636 m; 11,930 ft), located in the Darjeeling district of West Bengal. In the littoral southwest are the Sundarbans, the world's largest mangrove forest and home of the Bengal tiger. In the coastal southeast lies Cox's Bazar, the longest beach in the world at 125 km (78 mi). The region has a monsoon climate, which the Bengali calendar divides into six seasons. At times an independent regional empire, Bengal was a leading power in South Asia and later the Islamic East, with extensive trade networks. In antiquity, its kingdoms were known as seafaring nations. Bengal was known to the Greeks as Gangaridai, notable for mighty military power. It was rescribed by Greek historians that Alexander the Great withdrew from India because he anticipated a counterattack from an alliance of Gangaridai. Later writers noted merchant shipping links between Bengal and Roman Egypt. The Bengali Pala Empire was the last major Buddhist imperial power in the subcontinent, founded in 750 CE and becoming the dominant power in the northern Indian subcontinent by the 9th century CE. It was replaced by the Hindu Sena dynasty in the 12th century. Islam was introduced during the Pala Empire, through trade with the Abbasid Caliphate. Following the formation of the Delhi Sultanate in the 13th century, Islam spread across the Bengal region. During the Islamic Bengal Sultanate, founded in 1352, Bengal was a major trading nation in the world and was often referred to by Europeans as the richest country to trade with. It was later absorbed into the Mughal Empire in 1576. The Bengal Subah, described by the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb as the Paradise of the Nations, was the empire's wealthiest province, and became a major global exporter, a center of worldwide industries such as cotton textiles, silk, and shipbuilding. Its economy was worth 12% of the world's GDP, a value bigger than the entirety of Western Europe, and its citizens' living standards were among the world's highest. Bengal's economy underwent a period of proto-industrialization during this period. The region was conquered by the British East India Company after the Battle of Plassey in 1757, and it was defined as the Bengal Presidency of the British Raj. Bengal made significant contributions to the world's first Industrial Revolution, but later suffered its own deindustrialisation. East India Company policies, such as increasing agriculture tax rates from 10% to up to 50%, alongside drought and epidemics, contributed to famines such as the Great Bengal famine of 1770. This resulted in the deaths of between 1 million and 10 million Bengalis. Bengal played a major role in the Indian independence movement, in which revolutionary groups were dominant. Armed attempts to overthrow the British Raj began with the Sannyasi and Fakir Rebellion, and reached a climax when Subhas Chandra Bose led the Indian National Army allied with Japan to fight against the British. Many Bengalis died in the independence struggle, and many were exiled in the Cellular Jail, located in Andaman. The United Kingdom Cabinet Mission of 1946 split the region between India and Pakistan, an action popularly known as the partition of Bengal (1947), dividing the area between predominately Muslim and Hindu populations. This action was opposed by both the Prime Minister of Bengal, Huseyn Shaheed Suhrawardy, and nationalist leader Sarat Chandra Bose. They campaigned for a united and independent nation-state of Bengal. The initiative failed owing to goals of British diplomacy and communal conflict between Muslims and Hindus. Subsequently, West Bengal became a part of India and East Bengal became a part of Pakistan. In 1971, East Bengal became the independent nation of Bangladesh through the Bangladesh War of Independence. (en)

  • Bengala ( /bɛŋˈɡɔːl/; em bengali: বাংলা/বঙ্গ; romaniz.: Bānglā / Bôngô) é uma região geopolítica, cultural e histórica no sul da Ásia, especificamente na parte oriental do subcontinente indiano no ápice do golfo de Bengala. Geograficamente, é formado pelo sistema delta do Ganges-Bramaputra, a maior formação desse tipo no mundo; junto com as montanhas ao norte que fazem fronteira com os estados do Himalaia, Nepal e Butão e leste com Mianmar. Politicamente, Bengala está atualmente dividida entre Bangladexe (que cobre dois terços da região) e os territórios indianos indígenas de Bengala Ocidental, Tripurá e o Vale de Baraque de Assão (cobrem o restante do terço). Em 2011, a população de Bengala foi estimada em 250 milhões, tornando-a uma das regiões mais densamente povoadas do mundo. Entre eles, cerca de 160 milhões de pessoas vivem em Bangladexe e 91,3 milhões de pessoas vivem em Bengala Ocidental. O grupo etnolinguístico predominante é o povo bengali, que fala a língua bengali, uma língua indo-ariana. Os muçulmanos bengalis são a maioria em Bangladexe e Bengali. Os hindus são a maioria em Bengala Ocidental e Tripurá, enquanto o vale de Baraque contém proporções quase iguais de hindus bengalis e muçulmanos bengalis. Fora da Bengala propriamente dita, os territórios indígenas de Jarcanda, Biar e as ilhas Andamão e Nicobar também abrigam comunidades significativas de bengalis. Florestas densas, incluindo florestas tropicais montanhosas, cobrem as áreas norte e leste de Bengala; enquanto um platô florestal elevado cobre sua área central. No sudoeste litoral estão os Sundarbans, a maior floresta de mangue do mundo e lar do tigre de Bengala. No sudeste costeiro encontra-se Cox's Bazar, a maior praia do mundo a 125 km (78 mi). A região tem um clima de monções, que o calendário bengali divide em seis estações. Às vezes um império regional independente, a Bengala era uma potência líder no Sudeste Asiático e depois no Oriente Islâmico, com extensas redes de comércio. Na antiguidade, seus reinos eram conhecidos como nações marítimas. Bengala era conhecida pelos gregos como Gangaridai, notável pelo poder militar poderoso. Foi descrito pelos historiadores gregos que Alexandre o Grande se retirou do sudeste da Ásia, antecipando um contra-ataque de uma aliança de Gangaridai. Escritores posteriores notaram ligações mercantes entre Bengala e o Egito Romano. O império bengalês de Pala foi a última grande potência imperial budista no subcontinente, fundada em 750 e se tornando a potência dominante no subcontinente do norte da Índia no século IX, antes de ser substituída pela dinastia Hindu Sena. no século XII. O Islã foi introduzido durante o Império Pala, através do comércio com o califado abássida. O Sultanato de Bengala Islâmico, fundado em 1352, foi absorvido pelo Império Mogol em 1576. A província de Bengala Subá, do Império Mogol, tornou-se um importante exportador global, um centro de indústrias mundiais como têxteis de algodão, seda e construção naval. Bengala foi conquistada pela Companhia Britânica das Índias Orientais em 1757 pela Batalha de Plassey e tornou-se a presidência de Bengala do Raj Britânico, que experimentou a desindustrialização sob o domínio britânico. A empresa aumentou as alíquotas de impostos agrícolas de 10% para até 50, causando a Grande Fome de Bengala de 1770 e as mortes de 10 milhões de bengalis. Bengala desempenhou um papel importante no movimento de independência da Índia, em que os grupos revolucionários eram dominantes. Tentativas armadas de derrubar o Raj Britânico começaram com a rebelião de Titumir e atingiram o clímax quando Subhas Chandra Bose liderou o Exército Nacional Indiano aliado ao Japão para lutar contra os britânicos. Um grande número de bengalis morreu na luta pela independência e muitos foram exilados em Cellular Jail, localizado em Andamão. O Reino Unido Gabinete Missão de 1946, dividiu a região na Índia e no Paquistão Popularmente conhecido como partição de Bengala (1947), oposta pelo primeiro-ministro de Bengala Huseyn Shaheed Suhrawardy e líder nacionalista Sarat Chandra Bose. Eles fizeram campanha por um estado-nação unido e independente de Bengala. A iniciativa fracassou devido à diplomacia britânica e ao conflito entre muçulmanos e hindus. Mais tarde, o Paquistão decidiu que a Bengala Oriental se tornaria a nação independente de Bangladexe pela Guerra da Independência de Bangladexe em 1971. A cultura bengali tem sido particularmente influente nos campos da literatura, música, construção naval, arte, arquitetura, esportes, moeda, comércio, política e culinária. (pt)
