Welcome to Bangla year 1409- "Esho Hey Boishakh esho esho"


Pahela Baishakh’s carnage site at 'Boto Mool' revisited... By Dr. A.H. Jaffor Ullah.

Last year’s Pahela Baishakh (Bengali New Year) celebration that took place on April 14, 2001, at Ramna’s Boto-Mool (Foot of the Banyan Tree) was marred by a bomb blast that killed 10 innocent bystanders.

At the same time, I hoped to explore the origins and continuing legacy of Tagore's revolutionary ideal of a forest ashram-school.

The Bengali Calendar: A proud possession... By M. Arshad Ali.

Of so many gifts of the Muslim civilization the Bengali Calendar is the one that has survived the test of time. Time is inexorable, immeasurable and indivisible.
