Welcoming the New Year ..

Bengali New year celebration

West Bengal is a state in India and Bengalis have their New Year falling on 14th April each year. This is the beginning of the month of “Baishakh” which is the first month in the Bengali calendar. This day is called “Poila Baishakh” in Bengali meaning the first day of Baishakh.

In this auspicious day, West Bengal celebrates with dance and music. Such functions are found all over the state and every street corner welcomes this day in their own way … This photograph was taken on 14th April 2012 ..

Street photographs are mirror images of society, displaying "unmanipulated" scenes, with usually unaware subjects.
