Dhaka, Friday, April 10, 2009 

Like every year, students of Charukala (Faculty of Fine Arts, DU) are gearing up to celebrate ‘Pahela Baishakh.’ This year, the preparations started from March 25 under the banner of ‘Baishakh Udjapan Parshad-1416.’ Several items like ‘shora’, ‘tyapa putul’, masks, T-shirts, scarves and watercolour paintings by the students are sold at Charukala premises to generate funds for the Baishakhi celebration. Silvia Naznin, a student of MFA in Painting and member of the celebration committee, informed that an auction of artworks by the teachers of FFA started from yesterday. Proceeds from the sales will go to the celebration fund for arranging a three-day ‘Chaitra Shangkranti-Baishakhi’ programme. Price-range of the items is between tk. 100 and 5000. The three-day celebration will feature a Baishakhi rally, special programme on ‘Chaitra Shangkranti,’ ‘Bashakhi Utshab,’ ‘jatra-pala’ and more. The slogan of this year’s Baishakhi celebration is “Esho Rudro, Esho Shokti, Esho Mukti.”
