15 April - Bengali New Year
In the Bengali calendar, the new year begins on April 14-15th and is celebrated with family time, singing, fairs and parades. On Bengali New Year, special foods include panta bhat (watered rice), ilish bhaji (fried hilsa fish) and lots of delicious bhartas (mash).
Bengali day begins at sunrise and ends at sunset. Many people, even Bengali people donít know when the days start! They start to greet their families and friends at midnight, on 14 April or Pohela Boishakh, but itís not about English day that begins at 12 AM, itís about Bengali day. So, all Pohela Boishakh festivities start from the first prahar, which means the first hours of the day.
