Bangladesh preparing to welcome Bangla year 1431

The country is taking preparations to welcome Bangla year 1431 through Pohela Boishakh on April 14 (Sunday).

Many are busy with preparations for the ‘Mongol Shobhajatra’, a colourful procession that the Fine Arts Faculty of Dhaka University (DU) organizes, while many others are busy with pondering over food items and dresses.

The Mongol Shobhajatra was first organized to welcome the Bangla New Year in Jessore in 1986 that was adopted by the students of Fine Arts Faculty in 1989. Thenceforth, various institutions organize the procession around the country to welcome the New Year.

In a video message ahead of the Pahela Baishakh today (April 12), Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said let's work together in the Bangla New Year-1431 to build a beautiful future forgetting past failures. 

She said, "Assalamualaikum, the New Year has again come within us in round of the years. I wish you all the brothers and sisters stay at home and abroad greetings of the New Bangla Year-1431. Shuvo Noboborsho."

"Let's leave behind all the failures, sorrows and pains of the past and work together to build a beautiful future in the New Year," she said.

The Prime Minister ended her message quoting few lines from poet Sufia Kamal, "Puraton Goto Hok, jobonika Kori unmochon/Tumi eso hey nobin! hey Baishakh! Noboborsho ! eso hey notun"
