Bengali New Year, also known as Pohela Boishakh, Bangla Nabobarsho or Naba Barsha is on April 15, 2019. The festival will be grandly celebrated in West Bengal and Bangladesh. Even Bengalis all around the globe will celebrate Pohela Boishakh. The auspicious day marks the first day of the first month (Baishakh) of the lunisolar Bengali calendar. Pohela Boishakh also coincides with the other regional festivals like Vishu (Kerala), Puthandu (Tamil Nadu), Baisakhi (Punjab), and Bihu (Assam), when people celebrate the new year with their own local traditions and customs.

Misti alor jhikimiki sobuj ghase ghase,
snighdho haway duliye matha fuler koli hase,
Pakhir gane poribese mayabi ek dhoa,
dilam tomay subho nababorsher chhoya.

Bondhu tomar bhalobas har janala khola rekho,
Moner akash meghla hole amay kintu deko….
Jhor bristi katiye abar dekhabo alor hasi,
Ami achhi, thakbo jeno tomar pasa-pasi.
Shubho Poila Boisakh!

Notun Surjo, Notun Pran, Notun Sur, Notun Gan,
Notun alloy katuk adhar, par hoye jao okul pathar,
Katuk Bishad Asuk Horso,

Choitrer Raater Sheshe
Surjo Ashe Notun Beshe,
Shei Surjer Rongin Aalo
Muchhe Dik Jiboner Sokol Kalo
Shubho Nobo Borsho!

Bochor seser jhora pata
bollo ure eshe,
Ekti bochor periye gelo
haoyar sathe vese,
Natun bochor asche taake
jotno kore rekho,
Swapno gulo sotti kore
vison valo theko.
Happy New Year
