The organization said the initiative has been taken to connect viewers from all over the world with Ramna Batamul’s official greeting to the first sunrise of the Bangla New Year

Chhayanaut, a Bangladeshi cultural organization devoted to the practice and preservation of Bangla cultural heritage, will live stream their regular Pohela Boishakh Barsha Baran program of Dhaka’s Ramna Batamul on their official YouTube channel called Chhayanaut Digital-Platform. 

In a recent press statement, the organization said the initiative has been taken to connect viewers from all over the world with Ramna Batamul’s official greeting to the first sunrise of the Bangla New Year. 

Like every year, Barsha Baran 1426 will also be aired live on Bangladesh Television and Bangladesh Betar.

With hundreds of students and alumni-teachers this year, more than a 100 artists will be singing at the program to greet the new year. There will be 13 singles and 13 group songs and two recitations, according to Chhayanaut's press statement

In continuation with tradition, Rabindranath's songs have been selected for the performances. Other songs have also been selected in the same way from the writings of Kazi Nazrul Islam, Atulprasad Sen, Dwijendralal Roy, Rajinikanth Sen, Lalon Shah, Mukund Das, Ajay Bhattacharya, Shah Abdul Karim, Kuti Mansur, and Salil Chowdhury.
The national anthem will be performed during the end of the celebration program and the Chhayanaut president will make an address.

Chhayanaut first celebrated the Bangla New Year in 1967 (1374 in the Bangla calendar) under the ashwatha tree in Ramna Park. Except in 1971, the year that saw the Liberation War, Chhayanaut has been celebrating the day with musical renditions and poetic recitations.

Chhayanaut’s initiative popularized this festival, turning it into a celebration of greeting the Bangla New Year. It was also a time when Pakistani military rulers were contemptuous toward any manifestation of Bangladesh’s secular culture. 

Pohela Baishakh now is a phenomenon among Bangalis. The first day of the Bangla calendar is celebrated in big cities with much fanfare, music and a feast of various local cuisines, and with high hopes that the Bangla new year will bring prosperity and happiness for all. 

Pohela Baishakh is celebrated all over the country at city, district, union and upazila levels. With the crack of dawn, a tinge of festivity spreads in every nook and cranny of the country.
Each year in the capital city, Chhayanaut begins the festivities at the Batamul (under the banyan tree) in Ramna Park with a number of impeccable musical renditions composed by the best poets and lyricists of the Bangla language. Crowds throng the park to greet the new year with Chhayanaut.
