Cartoon: Convenient amnesia
Immerse yourself in Bangaliness on Pohela Boishakh and then conveniently forget it for the rest of the year. Wear bindis and saris, bangles and ear and nose rings with local motifs if you are a woman; wear punjabi and pajama if you are a man; eat panta and Ilish bhaja and bharta; then go out on the streets and meet your man or woman or friends. When you, like the entire nation, are done flaunting your Bangaliness, you can slough it off and put it aside, immersing thereby for the rest of the year in all forms of Indianness or Europeanness. Call it convenient amnesia. Text written by Rifat Munim
