‘Boishakh Borshoboron’ festival at Dhaka Regency Hotel
Art & Culture Report:
Bangladesh is a nation of diverse ethnicity and many religions. But there simply are a few special occasions that unite the people of this vibrant country to celebrate as one unit.
Pahela Boishakh - the Bengali New Year Day happens to be just such a happy occasion. To most us, the first day of the month of Boishakh marks an enthusiastic Bangladesh morphing into a festoon of colours with females in brightly painted saris and men in elaborate Punjabis, a collaborative parade of our national attires with one goal in mind - to have as much fun as possible.
This April 14 from 11:30am to 10:30pm, Dhaka Regency will celebrate the new beginning with additional flair and fanfare.
With an extensive deshi lunch and dinner buffet of sumptuous indigenous delicacies, jhalmuri, fuchka and chatpati live station, live local music, fortune telling with mysterious parrots, henna and face painting and whatnot, the Grandiose Restaurant on Level No 6 and Grill on the Skyline on Level No 14, is to be transform into a minefield of Bengali exposition. Be it panta elish or pithaa puli, the banquet table will be laden with a smorgasbord of sumptuous indigenous delicacies.
