Pohela Boishakh, the first day of the Bangla calendar, is being celebrated across the country amid much festivities. True to a centuries-old tradition, Bangladeshis from all walks of life have been thronging different popular and historic spots since dawn to welcome Bangla New Year 1425 with new hopes and aspirations for a better, more peaceful year. The celebrations of Pohela Boishakh have become an integral part of Bangali lives. Mughal Emperor Akbar introduced the Bangla calendar in 1556 of the Gregorian calendar in a bid to streamline the timing of land tax collection in the then “Subah Bangla” region, much of which falls under Bangladesh.
