Hey my lotter i am a Bangladeshi citizen and i am proud to be Bangladeshi. Though My country is not a rich country, I love my country, it take care of me like my mother. I am sorry to say that i am shocked because some of our Bangladeshi brother feels shy to say or show that they are Bangladeshi When I found their profile in the my lot they dont fill up their country. I dont say it for Not only the Bangladeshi But also for them who dont learn yer how to love his or her country. Do u think all of my lotter frnd is there any real reason for that? if not what do u say about for them?

I wonder why some people are ashamed of telling people about where they are from. In my opinion, all of us should be proud of our own country. That is the place where we were born and that's where our parents and their parents live and brought us into this world. I know that some people are proud to say that they are from the US and Canada or UK or any of those rich countries and some people, just like what you have mentioned are ashamed to admit that they came from a poor country. There is nothing to be ashamed of and I agree with you that all of us should be proud of our own country. I am from Malaysia and I would not hesitate to mention that to anybody no mater what that other person would think. I have friends from Bangladesh and I am glad that they are proud to tell me about their country and that should be the way!

well dear their is no point to be shy they are from a free land,where people have enough to eat,they care for each other yes they have problems but who don't have one of my very best friends on the internet is from Bangladesh and they are very loving people if we know and appreciate them , then why don't they tell them if they didn't had a free country, what would had become of them that is all i can add "if their is a stone in your house, it has a certain value in your eyes, even if it is worthless to others.And the home where you live in ....you should be proud of it"

I'm not hesitant to disclose my nationality (I was born Indian, but through naturalization I am American now). However, I do feel that nationalism is an obsolete idea that plays no role in the global society today. Ideas like nationality help identify say, locations and origins and also national borders help navigation, but aside from that putting any value or pride towards nationality I think is a bad thing. It prevents people from seeing humans as what they are... humanity. Instead, people see themselves as American, Indian, Chinese, British, etc. I am human, and that is that. You know what I mean? My 'nationality' is irrelevant in the sense of who I am. It's simply a way to identify me in say, a spreadsheet or something, a convenience if you will.

If they do not want to show their nationality, let us respect them, maybe they just do not want to be asked about sensitive topics about their country. I am glad you are proud of where you came from. I am proud of my origin too! I am a filipino, from the land of the promise and pearl of the orient... WOW PHILIPPINES! "be happy"

This is a great discussion, mhrmasum! I have often wondered when I go to someone's profile page that has requested to be added to my list of friends why it is that they would wish to hide their location. It does cause one to question their motives for being here. I've found this to be true on some of the other sites that I frequent also. I, like you am proud of where I live and don't want to hide it.

Hey there, Yes its sad. Iam an Indian and iam proud of my country. People should be proud of their nationality no matter if its poor or rich. Rich countries have their own problems. Money cant solve every problem ...as we can c people living so complicated lives in the developed countries. No country is perfect and i think every citizen has the duty to make his/ her country rich and prosperous. Blaming the government wont serve the purpose. Cheers, Tutul

I think they have their own reason not to shown their nationality but I think everyone won't get ashame showing their nationality. Because all country has their own unique thing and every people will proud with their country. I'm a Indonesian, I'm proud with my country although my country isn't a good or rich country and has bad system of goverment. Keep post Happy myLotting...

Probably some people don't want to be "boxed" as where they came from. They want to be known as individuals seeking enlightenment.

I asked about that some time ago, and the responses were somewhat surprising. ew people said they didn't want to encourage stalkers. I never realized the world was that small. Maybe they're celebrities in hiding.

THat was completely new to me because i never really thought of it before User names may indicate something but not necessarily so I guess the only way to check that out is go to the user.s profile and siee if his country is mentioned Rest assured that the government knows everything there is to know about us Good Luck from a proud Canadian Land of the Free and to me the greatest country in the world

I think that all countries have great things about them as well not so nice things. I wish that all My Lot members would list their home country and whatever that is it would be fine. I think that your brother should feel proud that he is from Bangladesh. It may be difficult for him to love his country. I was shocked when I looked the number of My Lot members and which countries they came from. Not specified was many thousands of people. It would be better if we got a clear picture of where every person on My Lot comes from. My friend that I worked with when I was 19 comes from Bangladesh and she is such a lovely person. I am a British citizen and my country isn't perfect. I see no reason why anyone should want to hide their nationality on My Lot, but this happens a great deal.

Your discussion reminds me of how we were oppressed and colonized by different nations. it was the time when all Filipino people gathered up together and fought for our freedom hand and hand. Having our nationalities is our own identity. we would know that we are free. Being ruled by all other foreign nation/s simply means that we are not free. we don't have freedom. Being a Filipino is a great honor though all was left to us are the remains of the past. We still try to keep and preserve our being Filipinos. For these people who tend to hide their nationalities, i guess they are just afraid that they would be discriminated. I don't know much about it but I i have met some people middle east and they said when they reveal their true nationalities other people would simply ignore them.

hi there, i don't think that my friends are shy to tell about their nationality. i am from India and am proud of my country. i have a friend who is from Sri Lanka and she never feels shy to tell or talk about her country. among my friends no one has ever felt shy to tell their nationality. when people feel shy i feel that they don't know anything about their country and their hometown. happy mylotting!

Well, I don't love my country and sometimes I am ashamed of it, but I am not afraid to admit where I am from. I think some people, especially from countries that get a bad rap, don't always want to share. I think it is a shame though because for me I love meeting new people and finding out where people are from and learning about different languages and cultures. That sort of thing has always fascinated me and I have met people from all over the world. I am glad you like your country. It'd be nice to live in a country one could be proud of. Mine unfortunately has been responsible for a ton of violence and hateful acts which are not worthy of appreciation and so despite that it is a first world country with luxuries that many countries cannot even access in the most expensive of places, I would gladly give it up for a friendlier place, even without the luxuries.

I have no problem in showing my nationality either. Every country has things that represent it and that the citizens must be proud of. More than that, in my profile I even completed as my location my native village, not the city I live in most of the time. It's in that village that I grew up and it made me who I am today!

Yes This Is The General Problem With My 1 Friend When I Requested To Show Your Nationality Card He Feels Shy And Refuse To Show & When I Ask Reason He Did'nt Tell Any Reason And Smile As I Feels Proud To Be A Pakistani But He Did'nt Think That Thing And Always Refuse To Show His Nationality & This Is The Cheap Way
