POILA BAISHAKH

Image ID: 114950734

Caption : Kolkata: THIS IS A PHOTO STORY: Priest taking the new account books to offer puja at Kalighat on Poila Bishakh, Thursday in Kolkata. ------- Story---------Poila Baishakh, the day Bengali new year starts, generally falls on April 15 celebrated in West Bengal, Orissa and Assam. Actually the Bengali Era was started during the sovereign king of Bengal Sashanka at the start of seventh century based on the Hindu solar calender ?Surya Siddhanta?. Later the Mughal Emperor Akbar modified and introduced the new Bengali calender as it faced difficulties collecting agriculture and land taxes according to the Islamic calender based on lunar system. The new bengali calender was introduced following the harvesting season when the farmers were financially comfortable. Poila Baishakh is also being celebrated in Bangaldesh on April 14, as they brought some changes in the calender after independence. On this day, the Bengalis wear new dresses, visit the Kali temple to offer puja and cook various dishes to celebrate with friends and relatives at home. The traders and entreprenuers community start the new account book from this day by offering a puja. Nowadays, as the computers have replaced the tradtional account books, many of them performs puja at their offices. Photo: Arunangsu Roy Chowdhury April 15, 2010.
