One of the most important festivals for Bengalis around the globe, Poila Boishak is the Bengali New Year. This year, the festival falls on April 15 and people celebrate the day with zest and zeal. The festival is marked on the first day of Baishakh according to the lunisolar Bengali calendar. The festival thus also often coincides with other regional new years like Vishu in Kerala, Rangoli Bihu in Assam among others.

Interestingly, Poila Boishak or Bengali New Year also marks the beginning of the new financial year for the Bengali business community (like Diwali is for many other parts of India, or April 1 for the corporate world). Thus, on this day, Bengalis often visit shops and buy valuables as it signifies good fortune. And like any festival, it is incomplete without a great meal, sweets and desserts!

So, if you’re away from your family this Poila Boishak, then here are some lovely greetings that you can send to your near and dear ones to wish them Subho Noboborsho.

* Let this year be one that brings you
peace, joy and fulfillment.
Happy Poila Boisakh 1425!
