I want to know about the celebration of Pohela Boishakh (Bangla new year) in indian subcontinent specially in Bangladesh.
Muslim Empire Akbor started the Bangoli calendar, from that time the people of bangoli community are celebrating the Bangla new year in 14th April every year.
but now the event has been mixed with some Hindu cultures.
so what should we do.?
can we celebrate the event as our own Bangali culture avoiding the rituals of Hindu religion like Marching with the pictures of owl, lighting candles….???
