  •  There are also infrastructure issues. (4+ / 0-)

    Bangladesh is a much poorer country than India, and therefore its infrastructure is beyond frightening.  You want to see dangerous kludges, go to India and look, really look at the electrical wiring overhead.  It's a rat's nest of wires, and some of them are exposed or so ancient that the casings are failing.  Now consider that the infrastructure in Bangladesh is worse.  The miracle is that there aren't more such disasters.

    It's just a horrible mess, and the solutions have to encompass the entire society.  Bangladesh's government is infamous for its corruption, so any solution will have to come from the ground up.
