(বাংলা  নববর্ষ  -- Bengali New Year)

শুভ নববর্ষ । Thanks for joining in celebrating Bengali New Year.  Photos and Videos of the event will be uploaded in the gallery

এসো, এসো, এসো হে বৈশাখ

তাপসনিশ্বাসবায়ে মুমূর্ষুরে দাও উড়ায়ে,

বৎসরের আবর্জনা দূর হয়ে যাক

যাক পুরাতন স্মৃতি, যাক ভুলে যাওয়া গীতি,

অশ্রুবাষ্প সুদূরে মিলাক।

মুছে যাক গ্লানি, ঘুচে যাক জরা,

অগ্নিস্নানে শুচি হোক ধরা

O Boishakh, I call on you
Dust away all that’s dying with your ascetic breath
Let the year’s dross go.
Let go old memories, let go forgotten melodies,
Let mists of the eye thin far away into dissolution.
Let weariness be erased, infirmity cease,
Hallowed be the Earth to bathe in your fire
