Nobo Borsho Calling

It's that time of the year again; as Pahela Baishakh edges nearer, artists explore mediums of tradition and heritage for their artistic expression to usher in the Bengali New Year. Students of the Faculty of Fine Arts of Dhaka University are already holding their paintbrushes and palettes overtime to mark the Bengali year 1420 as colourfully as it is in every Bengali's heart. Proceeds from the sale of artworks, which will continue at the Charukala premises till April 13, will go into organising the Mangal Shobhajatra (rally on April 14). Photo: ATL Aakash
