April Colors

The colors of April, if you are living in Bangladesh, are red and white. This is the month when we celebrate the Bengali New Year, and the entire country (well, mostly the urban population, actually) is dressed up to the nines in these colors.





And the Blogging Girl and Ranak too were properly attired.


The Art College brought out a procession, called the Mongol Shobha Jatra, with huge floats and colorful masks.




And there was entertainment galore.



Many wares were on sale in the Boishakhi Mela (fair).




And if one was hungry, or thirsty, there were lots on offer.



The average Bengali is very patriotic, and we sat for awhile under the most patriotic ceiling in the country - at Madhu's Canteen in the Dhaka Uni campus.


Running into dear friends is always a pleasant surprise.



While some things reminded us of dear friends far away.


For lunch we went to Aahar, a very popular restaurant specializing in local cuisine (on Road 23, Gulshan).



And at home, a Boishakhi atmosphere prevailed.


Shubho Nobo Borsho, Dear Readers.

I am married to a Bangladeshi and I know how patriotic the people are - as they should. That's a very admirable trait I believe.
