Heritage of Bangladesh
With the introduction of modern technologies, bullock carts, like many other well-known heritages of Bangladesh, are on the verge of disappearance. In the course of time, the age-old transportation of rural Bangladesh has lost its value to the modern speedy vehicles. The bullock cart race is a common scene in the rural areas of Jessore during winter. At the end of winter, after all the paddy has been harvested and the farmers have taken all their produce home, when the vast areas of crop fields become open, the villagers of Jessore organize a bullock cart race, which is a major event in the area, since people travel from far away to join there.
