বাড়াবাড়ি (What does this mean?)

আমাকে নিয়ে সে বাড়াবাড়ি রকমের আধিপত্যপ্রবণ ছিল। এমনকি আমার আশপাশে ছেলেবন্ধুদের উপস্থিতিও সে সহ্য করতে পারত না। পরিচয়ের পর মাত্র দুবার আমরা নৈশভোজে গিয়েছিলাম।

    বাড়াবাড়ি means "Too much" as in the sentence "I can't stand him anymore; he is doing too much and getting on my nerves!".

    Do you get it? It is mostly used to insult or talk offensively about someone. This "too much" is NOT the same as "many", which in Bengali would be অনেক or অনেক বেশি etc.

    A slightly less offensive (but still offensive) way if saying বাড়াবাড়ি is অতিরিক্ত . অতিরিক্ত actually means "extra" but in this type of context it can also refer to "(doing) too much".

    I hope you understood this explanation. If you didn't, please ask me again and I will try to help you more.
