Pohela/Poila Boishakh, or Bengali New Year is the first day of the Bengali calendar, celebrated on 14 April every year in Bangladesh and in the Indian states of West Bengal and Tripura by the Bengali people and also by minor Bengali communities in other Indian states, including Assam, Jharkhand and Orrisa. It coincides with the New Year's days of numerous Southern Asian calendars like Tamil new year Puthandu. The traditional greeting for Bengali New Year is Shubhô Nôbobôrsho, which is literally Happy New Year.
