Pohela Baishak –
The very name of it brings a smile to every Bengali face. But, be it a Bengali household or an area of business, Bengali’s New Year (Pohela Baishak) is an auspicious event nonetheless. So, when Akbar asked the royal astronomer Fathullah Shirazi to merge the two calendars –
Lunar Islamic calendar and solar Hindu calendar and make a harvest calendar – It coincided with the first (Pohela) month of Baishak (Indian season for the onset of summer). This is the backdrop of wishing ‘Subho Naboborsho’ which we so love.
We at Originate Soft Private Limited wish everyone SUBHO NABOBORSHO from the bottom of our hearts.
The history of Pohela Baishak
The Mughal dynasty is linked to the celebration of Pohela Baishak. People who celebrate the event may be unaware that the Bengali calendar, which was adopted by the Mughal Emperor Akbar in the 15th century, is one of a kind.
Agricultural taxes were collected according to the Islamic Hijri calendar during the Mughal dynasty. However, because the Hijri calendar is exclusively lunar, it does not correspond to the harvest, posing administrative challenges in determining the collecting date. Farmers were forced to pay taxes outside of the tax season as a result. Henceforth, the Mughal Emperor Akbar ordered a calendar modification to make tax collecting easier.
How is Pohela Baishak celebrated?
Pohela Baishak, also known as Pohela Baishak, is a festival marked by zeal and joy in Bengal. According to the Gregorian calendar, this period normally occurs around mid-April. The festival will be held on March 15 this year.
Baishak is the Bengali calendar’s first month. The first day of the month of Baishak is known as Pohela Baishak. Baisakhi is the Punjabi name for the event, while Puthandu is the Tamil name, Vishu is the Kerala name, and Rongali Bihu is the Assamese name.
