It is time of the year to usher in merrymaking and welcome the first day of the new year in Bengali calendar, celebrated as Poila Boisakh. The passionate and artistic community of Bengalis celebrate this day with lots of élan-energy, style and enthusiasm. This new day of the new year is celebrated with a mix of old traditions and modern energy.
Here are my 5 pointers to make your Poila Boisakh a memorable one
Decorating home -
Perfect time of the year to get rid of old unwanted things and make space for new stuff.
Go traditional with white Alpona/Alpana motifs on the floor using a paste of rice instead of colours. Create a traditional design to welcome all auspicious things to your home.
Adorn your vase with some fragrant flowers like Rajnigandha.
Jazz up your home decor with some kantha/batik cushion covers/ mats.
Shopping fun -
Indulge in some shopping in the amazing Chaitra sales this time of the year which is the most awaited discount sale in the city.
Shop for new clothes for yourself and your family and also some home furnishings.
Dress right -
The call of the day is to dress traditional. Don your pretty sarees and wear a beautiful neckpiece with long earrings.
Men must don a traditional attire too and therefore dress in batik or kantha Panjabi or a dhoti.
The day is celebrated by touching feet of elders and getting their blessings for the new year.
Exchange 'Shubho Noboborsho' wishes with near and dear ones along with a box of the quintessential Sandesh or your favourite Bengali sweet to complete the celebrations.
Spic and span Kitchen -
In the essence of the new year celebrations, ensure that your kitchen is clean and insect free.
