The Bengali New Year (PAHELA BAISHAKH)
We have our own calendar called Bangla Shon what is passing her 15th century
(according to 14th April 2016 is the 1st day of Bengali New Year 1423).
The Bengali New Year begins at dawn, and the day is marked with singing, processions,
and fairs. Traditionally, businesses start this day with a new ledger, clearing
out the old.
People of Bangladesh enjoy a national holiday on Pahela Boishakh. All over the
country people can enjoy fairs and festivals. Singers perform traditional songs
welcoming the New Year. People enjoy classical JATRA plays.
Like other festivals of the region, the day is marked by visiting relatives,
friends and neighbors. People prepare special dishes for their guests.
The festivities from the deep heartland of Bengal have now evolved to become
vast events in the cities, especially the capital Dhaka. In Dhaka and other
large cities, the festivals begin with people gathering under a big tree. People
also find any bank of a lake or river to witness the sunrise. Artists present
songs to welcome the New Year, particularly with Rabindranath Tagore's well-known
song "Esho, he Boishakh".
People from all spheres of life wear classic Bengali dress. Women wear saris
with their hair bedecked in flowers. Likewise, men prefer to wear panjabis.
A huge part of the festivities in the capital is a vivid procession organized
by the students and teachers of Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka.
Pahela Boishakh is celebrated with grandeur and colors in Dhaka and other parts
of Bangladesh. The celebrations are started at the break of dawn with a rendition
of Rabindranath Tagore's song "Esho he Baishakh" by Chhayanat under
the banyan tree at Ramna (the Ramna Batamul). An integral part of the festivities
is the Mongol Shobhajatra, a traditional colorful procession organized by the
students of the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka (Charukala). The procession
has a different theme relevant to the country's culture and politics every year.
Different cultural organizations and bands also perform on this occasion and
fairs celebrating Bengali culture are organized throughout the country. Other
traditional events held to celebrate Poila Boishakh include bull racing in Munshiganj,
wrestling in Chittagong, boat racing, cockfights, pigeon racing and village
