Naba Barsha

Naba Barsha is the Bengali New Year's Day and falls on April 14. It begins with prabhat pheries (early morning processions), songs and dance to welcome the New Year. A dip in a river or tank is another essential feature of the day's ritual. With powdered rice, housewives make beautiful designs called Alpana on the floor of their houses.
