Pohela Boishakh: Origin, History, Culture & Facts

Pohela Boishakh (Bangla New Year) Date – Thursday, 14 April, 2022 in Bangladesh

What is Pohela Boishakh / Bangla New Year?

Bengali New Year is referred to in Bengali as “New Year” (Bengali: নববর্ষ Nôbobôrsho, from Sanskrit Nava(new) Barṣha(year) or “First of Boishakh” (Bengali: পহেলা বৈশাখ Pôhela Boishakh. Nobo means new and Borsho means year. In Bengali, Pohela stands for ‘first’ and Baishakh is first month of Bengali calendar.

Bengali New Year (Bengali: নববর্ষ) or Pahela Boishakh (পহেলা বৈশাখ) is the first day of the Bengali calendar, celebrated in both Bangladesh and West Bengal, and in Bengali communities in Assam, Tripura and Odisha and all over India as well where the Bengali community arises. It coincides with the New Year’s Days of numerous Southern Asian calendars. Poila Boishakh connects all ethnic Bengalis irrespective of religious and regional differences. In India, in West Bengal and Assam, it is a public (state) holiday and is publicly celebrated in mid-April. In Bangladesh, it is a national holiday celebrated around 14 April according to the official amended calendar designed by the Bangla Academy.

Boishakh/Baishakh is the first of the Bengali months where Pohela simply means “first”. The term “Pohela Boishakh” therefore, stands for the first day of the Bengali year and naturally refers to the festivity attached to this day as well. The celebration itself is called “Borsho Boron Utsab” or “Boishakhi Utsab” (the gala of Boishakh) which is held to welcome the Nobo Borsho (New Year). It is one celebration that goes beyond geographical borders as the Bengali New Year is celebrated in the West Bengal of India as well as in Bangladesh, making it the biggest cultural festival that has survived the last few centuries where Bengalis of all walks of life come together to make it colorful, bright and joyous.

Origin & History of Pohela Boishakh:

Who Started Bengali New Year?

The story of the pohela boishakh history has a few versions, however, they all go back to one particular Mughal emperor, Akbar the Great and the tax collecting process under his reign (1556-1609). Several hundred years ago, the economy almost entirely depended on agricultural productions. In Bengal, the agriculture necessarily revolved around its six seasons. Under the Mughals, tax was collected on the basis of Arabic or Hijri year that did not exactly go hand in hand with the seasonal cycle of this region. For instance, when it was time for the landowners to collect taxes, the peasants would still be waiting to reap their products from the fields.

 

This way, following a lunar calendar that hijri year was based upon, proved inconvenient for all the parties involved. Realizing the urgency of reformation in the existing year system, the Baadshah (emperor) gave one of the many renowned scholars of his court, Fatelluah Shiraji the responsibility to make the necessary amendments. The new calendar was designed keeping the nature of all six seasons, their duration and contribution to the agriculture in mind. Some scholars argue that Pohela Boishakh (1st boishakh) was anything but a reason for festivity for the peasants who comprised the majority of the population when they had to pay off their taxes on the last day of Chaitra/ Choitro, the month before Boishakh.

Besides, the landlords, to collect the taxes, often subjected the grassroot people to physical force. Such circumstances were most unlikely to leave people in a mood for festivity by the time the Pohela Boishakh was knocking on their doors. Despite having enough reasons for it to be the contrary, Pahela Baishakh was a time for celebration. To avoid any serious rebellion, Badshah Akbar introduced the masterfully crafted custom of the New Year celebration that took place right after the tax-paying day. The amusements and feasts that used to be arranged helped to smoothen the harshness of the tax paying and sow the hopes for a better year among all.

As mentioned earlier, the celebration of Bengali New Year, poyla Boishakh, takes place both in West Bengal and Bangladesh. But, Pahela Boishakh in Bangladesh did not receive a collective form until 1965. During the growing movement for an independent state from Pakistan that began by the end of the 1940s and continued until the independence in 1971, the former Pakistani Government implemented many policies that were somewhat modified versions of the British “Divide and Rule” principle.

In other words, those policies were meant to differentiate a Bengali Muslim from others and avoid a strong, joint movement for independence. As a continuation to such steps, the Pakistani government banned poems by the Noble winning Bengali author, Shree Rabindranath Tagore. Then, Chhayanaut, the only major Fine Arts institution of the time designed their cultural show for Poila Boishakh to be a means of protest. The Pohela Boishakh that takes place under the Banyan tree of Ramna Park in Dhaka ever since was to open with Boishakhi songs by Tagore.

This way, Pohela Boishak became one with the nationalist notions of the Bengali people who resided in the East Pakistan, known as Bangladesh today. The fine Arts Institute (CharuKala Institute) of Dhaka University enhanced the attraction of the day in the late 1980s by adding Boishakhi Parade (Shobha Jatra) so that a growing participation and acceptance is ensured. Soon, an attempt by a few hundred people to uphold the Bengali traditions and unify Bengalis while doing it, transformed into a national event.

In the West Bengal, Bengali New Year celebration has ties to religious values as well. The entire month of Boishakh is considered auspicious. Therefore, the first day by itself is reason enough for festivity. For the Hindu, the day begins with Puja (religious ritual) followed by cultural shows. Because of its being considered auspicious, Boishakh is the month when most Hindu weddings take place in both Bengals.

Aspects & Activities of Pohela Boishakh:

How is Pohela boishakh celebrated?

In Bangladesh, the day begins before the break of dawn when crowd gathers in Ramna Park for the Cultural show held by Chhayanat every year. Women mainly wear white Shari (saree price in bangladesh) with red border. Since Boishakh brings spring, women adorn their hair with flowers and wear colorful churi (bangles) that symbolizes the many colors and renewed life in nature. On the other hand, men mainly wear traditional Punjabi (Panjabi price in bangladesh) with Paayjama, Lungi or Dhuti/Dhoti.

  • Boishakhi Parade (Mongol Shova jatra): Boishakhi Mongol Shobha Jatra is one of the biggest attractions of the day. Very early in the morning, the rally starts from the CharuKala Institute of Dhaka University.

    It is arranged all over the country and continues for at least a week. There are a wide range of products and activities that make the fair an attraction to all age groups. From home accessories to anything and everything that speaks Bengali authenticity, find their way to here. One of the fun aspects of the Boishakhi Mela is the joy ride like the Merry-Go-Round and Ferris wheel. The ones seen in this fair are different in that these are much smaller with a simpler structure made out of wood and bamboo and lacking engines to run them. In stead, two or more men stand beside these rides to push.

New Year’s festivities are closely linked with rural life in Bengal. Usually on Pahela Boishakh, the home is thoroughly scrubbed and cleaned; people bathe early in the morning and dress in fine clothes. They spend much of the day visiting relatives, friends and neighbors. Special foods are prepared to entertain guests. This is one rural festival that has become enormously big in the cities, especially in Dhaka.

Boishakhi fairs are arranged in many parts of the country. Various agricultural products, traditional handicrafts, toys, cosmetics, as well as various kinds of food and sweets are sold at these fairs. The fairs also provide entertainment, with singers and dancers staging jatra (traditional plays), pala gan, kobiganjarigan, gambhira gan, gazir gan and alkap gan. They present folk songs as well as baul, marfatimurshidi and bhatiali songs. Narrative plays like Laila-Majnu, Yusuf-Zulekha and Radha-Krishna are staged. Among other attractions of these fairs are puppet shows and merry-go-rounds.

Pohela Boishakh Games

Many old festivals connected with New Year’s Day have disappeared, while new festivals have been added. With the abolition of the zamindari system, the punya connected with the closing of land revenue accounts has disappeared. Kite flying in Dhaka and bull racing in Munshiganj used to be very colorful events. Other popular village games and sports were horse races, bullfights, cockfights, flying pigeons, and boat racing. Some festivals, however, continue to be observed; for example, bali (wrestling) in Chittagong and gambhira in Rajshahi are still popular events.

Pohela Boishakh Food

Observance of Pohela Boishakh has become popular in the cities. Early in the morning, people gather under a big tree or on the bank of a lake to witness the sunrise. Artists present songs to usher in the new year. People from all walks of life wear traditional Bengali attire: young women wear white saris with red borders and adorn themselves with churi bangles, ful flowers, and tip (bindis). Men wear white paejama(pants) or lungi(dhoti/dhuti) (long skirt) and kurta (tunic). Many townspeople start the day with the traditional breakfast of panta bhat (rice soaked in water), green chillies, onion, and fried hilsa fish.

Panta Ilish(পান্তা ইলিশ) – a traditional platter of leftover rice soaked in water with fried Hilsa(ইলিশ), supplemented with dried fish (Shutki/শুঁটকী), pickles (Achar), lentils (dal), green chilies and onion – a popular dish for the Pohela Boishakh festival.

Pohela Boishakh Songs

The most colorful New Year’s Day festival takes place in Dhaka. Large numbers of people gather early in the morning under the banyan tree at Ramna Park where Chhayanat artists open the day with Rabindranath Tagore’s famous pohela boishakh song, এসো, হে বৈশাখ, এসো এসো Esho, he Boishakh, Esho Esho (Come, O Boishakh, Come, Come). A similar ceremony welcoming the new year is also held at the Institute of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka. Students and teachers of the institute take out a colorful procession and parade around the campus. Social and cultural organizations celebrate the day with cultural programs. Newspapers bring out special supplements. There are also special programs on the radio and television.

The historical importance of Pohela Boishakh in the Bangladeshi context may be dated from the observance of the day by Chhayanat in 1965. In an attempt to suppress Bengali culture, the Pakistani Government had banned poems written by Rabindranath Tagore, the most famous poet and writer in Bengali literature. Protesting this move, Chhayanat opened their Pohela Boishakh celebrations at Ramna Park with Tagore’s song welcoming the month. The day continued to be celebrated in East Pakistan as a symbol of Bengali culture. After 1972 it became a national festival, a symbol of the Bangladesh nationalist movement and an integral part of the people’s cultural heritage. Later, in the mid- 1980s, the Institute of Fine Arts added color to the day by initiating the Boishakhi parade, which is much like a carnival parade.

CHOTTOGRAM, Bangladesh | চট্টগ্রাম, বাংলাদেশ

Kolkata and West Bengal | কলকাতা এবং পশ্চিম বঙ্গ

Kolkata, the sovereign of Bengalis in India; witnesses some of the grand celebrations of Poyela Boishakh. In Kolkata and the rest of Indian/West Bengal, Poyela Boishakh and indeed the entire month of Boishakh is considered an auspicious time for marriages, opening of new business ventures etc. Choitro is the Last month of the Bangla year; the garment traders give special discounts throughout the month. The last day of Choitro, is celebrated as Choitro Sankranti among the Hindu community, and Charak Pujo is held on this day. On this very same day, Charak Mela/fair is organized in various parts of rural Bengal; some really miraculous acrobatics are performed by the members and these stunts are quite risky indeed.

Pohela Boishakh is also the occasion when the whole family comes for a get together; youngsters touch feet of elders seeking benediction (আশীর্বাদ), and peers greet each other Suvo Nôbobôrsho with a hug (Kolakuliকলাকুলি). The celebration remains incomplete without “mishti mukh” exchanging sweets with the near and dear ones. The day of Poyela Boishakh is a day of cultural events. Like Bangladesh, here also people wake up & bathe early in the morning and dress up in traditional Bengali attire. Many go for Probhat Pheri (a parade similar to “Shobhajatra” in Bangladesh, but it’s not as colorful as that) to welcome the first day of the New Year singing Rabindra Sangeet, here also the song “এসো, হে বৈশাখ, এসো এসো”Esho, he Boishakh, Esho Esho is very popular.

Businessmen open new accounting books (HalKhata) on this day; for the Bengali Hindu businessmen HalKhata begins only after performing puja, “Swastik” sign is drawn on the HalKhata by the priests. Devotees are seen in front of the Kalighat temple (কালীঘাট মন্দির), in long queues, from the late night. Devotees offer Puja to receive the blessings of the almighty.

The Government of West Bengal organizes various fairs and cultural events in different parts of the state. The most famous of these is Bangla Sangit Mela(রবীন্দ্র সঙ্গীত), held at Nandan-Rabindra Sadan ground.

OTHER NATIONS | অন্যান্য দেশ

Apart from Bengal, Poyela Boishakh is also celebrated by the Bengali community living in the United Kingdom, United States of America, Australia etc.

Today, Pohela Boishakh celebrations also mark a day of cultural unity without distinction between class or religious affiliations. Of the major holidays celebrated in Bangladesh, only Pohela Boishakh comes without any preexisting expectations (specific religious identity, the culture of gift-giving, etc.). Unlike holidays like Eid ul-Fitr, where dressing up in lavish clothes has become a norm, or Christmas where exchanging gifts has become an integral part of the holiday, Pohela Boishakh is really about celebrating the simpler, rural roots of the Bengal. As a result, more people can participate in the festivities together without the burden of having to reveal one’s class, religion, or financial capacity.

পবিত্র মাহে রমজানঃ রোজা শুরুর আগেই হোক প্রস্তুতি

বছর ঘুরে আবার চলে এল সিয়াম সাধনার মাস পবিত্র মাহে রমজান। আসন্ন ঈদ কে ঘিরে প্রতি বছর এই সময় ঘরে ঘরে আসে একটা আনন্দের আমেজ এবং তার সাথে থাকে ঈদ নিয়ে নানানরকম জল্পনা-কল্পনা। এই সময়টায় সাধারণ জীবনযাত্রায় চলে আসে আমূল পরিবর্তন, কিছুটা পরিকল্পনা মাফিক চলাফেরা করলে রমজান মাসটা কাটানো যাবে স্বস্তি আর স্বাচ্ছন্দ্যে। তাই আজকে আমি আপনাদের সুবিধার্থে দিয়ে দেব কিছু রমজানের টিপস এবং আইডিয়া।

প্রতিবারের মত এবারও রমজান মাসে, বাইরের তাপমাত্রা খুব একটা সহনীয় থাকবে না, তাই চেষ্টা করুন আগে থেকে রান্নার প্রয়োজনীয় সামগ্রী কিনে রাখতে যাতে রোজা রেখে অযথা জ্যাম ঠেলতে না হয়। সময় বাঁচাতে চাইলে ঘরে বসে দেশের সবচেয়ে বড় অনলাইন শপিং মল দারাজেই সেরে ফেলতে পারবেন যাবতীয় কেনাকাটা।

দুঃসহ গরমে ইফতারের সময় এক গ্লাস ঠাণ্ডা জুস দূর করতে পারবে সারাদিনের ক্লান্তি। বাজারের কৃত্রিম উপাদানে তৈরি জুস না কিনে, তাজা ফলের রস খেতে চেষ্টা করুন এতে আপনি আরও সতেজ অনুভব করবেন। নিত্যদিন জুস বানানোর জন্য রমজানের আগেই কিনে নিতে পারেন জুসার ও ব্লেন্ডার মেশিন, যাতে প্রথম রোজার ইফতার শুরু করতে পারেন একটি স্বাস্থ্যপ্রদ উপায়ে।

রমজান মাস শুরু হওয়ার আগেই কিছুটা সেমি- প্রসেসে করে রাখতে পারেন ইফতারের বৈচিত্র্যময় আইটেম। এতে করে ইফতারের মেনুতে একঘেয়েমি আসবে না এবং রোজা রেখে আপনার সারাদিন রান্নাঘরে কষ্ট পোহাতে হবে না। খাবার প্রস্তুত করার জন্য দারাজের গ্রোসারি ক্যাটাগরিতেই পাবেন হরেক রকম মাছ, মাংস এবং নানা পদের সবজিজাত দ্রব্য।

প্রতিদিন রান্নায় নতুনত্ব আনা বেশ কঠিন হয়ে যাই, যখন অন্য হাজারো চিন্তা থাকে ঈদকে ঘিরে। সেক্ষেত্রে রমজানের আগেই তৈরি করে ফেলুন একটি সাপ্তাহিক মেনু প্ল্যান। এই প্ল্যান মেনে চললে, রোজ আপনার খাদ্য তালিকায় গুরুত্বপূর্ণ প্রোটিন, ফ্যাট এবং শর্করার পরিমাপ নিশ্চিত করতে পারবেন।

বছরের সবচেয়ে বড় উৎসবের প্রস্তুতি নিতে রমজানের আগেই সাজিয়ে ফেলুন আপনার বাজেট। প্রতি ক্ষেত্রে কতটা ব্যয় করবেন, যেমন চাকুরীজীবীদের ক্ষেত্রে ঈদ বোনাস এবং ব্যবসায়ীদের ক্ষেত্রে বাড়তি ইনকাম বিশাল একটা ভূমিকা পালন করে বাজেট প্ল্যানিং-এ। একটু সময় করে বাজেট নিয়ে ভাবলে টাকা-পয়সা নিয়ে অযথা দুশ্চিন্তা মনে ভর করবে না। যেহেতু বাজেট প্ল্যানিং নিয়ে বলছি, একটা কথা অবশ্যই বলব দারাজ অনলাইন শপিং ওয়েবসাইটে(daraz.com.bd) চোখ রাখতে। পবিত্র রমজান উপলক্ষ্যে নানানরকম আকর্ষণীয় দামে এবং মূল্যছাড়ে পেয়ে যাবেন পছন্দের পণ্য আপনার স্বাদ এবং সাধ্যের মধ্যেই। রমজান ও ঈদের কেনাকাটা সহজে করতে চোখ রাখতে পারেন দারাজ ঈদ শপিং ফেষ্ট ক্যাম্পেইনে।

অবশেষে, উপরে উল্লেখিত টিপস অনুযায়ী রমজানের প্রস্তুতি নিলে আশা করি, বেশ আরামসেই কেটে যাবে এই বছরের রমজান মাস, এরপর শুধু থাকবে অধীর আগ্রহ নিয়ে রোজার ঈদের অপেক্ষা।
