Nabo Borsho (literally translated as New Year) celebrates the Bengali New Year. Alternatively, it is also called Poila Boishakh or First Baisakh signifying the first day of Baisakh, the starting month of Bengali calendar. Accordingly it is normally celebrated around April 15 of Gregorian calendar. Bengali calendar ties closely with the Hindu solar calendar. Bengali calendar is 594 years less than the Gregorian year.
Nabo Borsho is one of the secular festivals of Bengal. In spite of the summer heat during this time throughout Bengal, people celebrate through music and dance. The Baisakh month is also the birth month of Rabindranath Tagore, Bengalâ€™s cultural icon. This is also the day when the business community in Bengal opens a new financial year by opening a new accounting book (Haal Khata literally translated as the Current Book).
