Mangal Shobhajatra has been brought out by the students and teachers of IFA (Institute of Fine Arts) on Monday morning marking the Pahela Baishak, the first day of Bangla New Year.

Dhaka University Vice Chancellor Professor AAMS Siddique inaugurated the rally at 9am that started from the Institute of Fine Arts of the university.

Later, the rally returned to the same place after parading Dhaka University campus.

Thousands of people from all walks of life joined the rally with masks and huge papier-mâché creatures that turned into a carnival.

Mangal Shobhajatra literally translated as celebratory procession has become a signature event of Pahela Baishakh.

Students of the Institute of Fine Arts at Dhaka University (DU) organise the procession every year on April 14, the first day on Bangla New Year.
