Shuvo Noboborsho-Happy New (Bangla) Year
The Bangla new year celebration is tomorrow... The year ended with a sad news that is Bangladesh lost the test match against Australia where they had a great chance to win .. any way-
"Noboborsho" that means "new year" is celebrated largely every year in Bangldesh. Today, the last day of the Bangla year, known as Chaitra Shankranti is also the last day of the traditional Chaitra Parba festival.
This is Bengali 1413. wow.. I can remember the huge celebration of 1400 .. :D
Now what I do in every Noboborsho? yeah At the morning me and some of my friends (tareq, amit, jony and others) first gather at Shahbagh.. then start from "Ramna Botomul" .. thus the journey begins ... we roam all the day in the Dhaka University area..
color our face in charukola .. :P
Thousands and thousands of people gather in this whole area. In one side of "Shishu Park" Fakir alamgir sings song all the day .. At TSC (teachers students center of DU) lots of boys and girls gather.. father-mother with their children.. all together just walk, walk and walk ..
All the ladies wear nice colorful sarees which gives us extra energy to walk around all the day under the hot sun..
Then at charukola we ride on the famous "Nagor Dola".. riding there is a lot of fun..tareq.. the top view .. he he he
The rally of charukola students is another "chomok" of the day ... every year it starts at 9 from "charukola prangon" then it moves round the "doyel chottor", "science faculty" and back to "Charukola again" Huge colorful masks, dummies of national bird, animal etc. are the main decoration.. this year I heard that the charukola students have arranged it with their own money .. government didn`t pay at all. ..
See! how huge a rally could be !
Yeah may be one of them is me :p
Then and then when its noon .. then everybody becomes tired and try to find some shadow to take breath.. all the ladies got priority then .. i get no problem at all when i need to leave my place for a beutiful lady :P
Then and then at after noon we again start journey .. listen to"BAUL gan" .. "Amar sadh mete na langol choshe .." or "Age ki sundor din kataitam.. "
Oh I forgot the panta bhat .. yeah thats not special for me on this very day .. coz me and my friends are used to with that .. so we dont waste our valiable money buying "Panta" in "Boishakhi mela" :p
I dont know may be the whole post became a document .. or an essay .. essay on "Ekdin Pohela Boishakhe" ha ha .. But i am excited to celebrate the day .. And I WISH U ALL A WARM "shuvo noboborsho" .. tomader jibon hok ei shishutir moto pobitro.....
