jamuna news: Pahela Baishakh has come once again! Bengali New Year or Pôhela Boishakh , occurring on 14th April, is the first day of the Bengali calendar, celebrated in Bangladesh.
Bangla New Year or Pohela Boishakh connects all Ethnic Bengalis irrespective of religious and regional differences. After a whole year, it has come back with colours, joy and happiness to bless the Bengalis. It will be time again to participate in fairs and festivals.
It will be a time to feast on traditional food. And, of course, it will be time to look exquisite in the colours of Baishakh (red and white).
If we walk inside the big malls or walk across the nearby neighbourhood boutique houses we will definitely be attracted by the similarity struck in the colours of the clothes put on display. But here is where creativity and art strikes in! Although in any fashion house, the colours of dresses on display are red and white- no two dresses are alike.
There is so much detail and work put on each dress that the colour theme is not at all monotonous but the trend and style in which each shop are competing to attract customer attraction brings in a whole new diversity in the collections.
Then again, we have a deep attachment with these two colours during Baishakh. It represents our cultural roots and the festive times of Baishakh. This is why the colours and the dresses are even more endearing to us. The rich diversity of the collections by different designers is inevitably conspicuous. A good amount of time before the auspicious event is spent by people looking for the perfect Baishakhi outfit. Motifs come to life and patterns dance gracefully on the traditional Baishakhi attires.
