Chhayanaut cancels Pahela Baishakh programme

Chhayanaut cancels Pahela Baishakh programme

Chhayanaut announced that it will not organise the annual Pahela Baishakh cultural festivity to welcome the Bengali new year at Ramna Park due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“Since 1967, Chhayanaut has been regularly arranging the traditional cultural festivity under the banyan tree at city’s Ramna Park to welcome the Bengali new year. The only exception was in 1971 and we have decided to postpone this year’s festivity amid the global coronavirus outbreak,” Chhayanaut General Secretary Laisa Ahmed Lisa said in a press release.

Its organisers and performers have postponed their activities and started helping out the helpless and poor since the Independence Day.

Chhayanaut requested everyone to maintain good hygiene and follow proper health guidelines to take care of each other and stop the spread of coronavirus.

Earlier, the Cabinet Division instructed the authorities concerned to postpone all programmes of Pahela Baishakh to avoid mass gatherings.

Chhayanaut, founded in 1961, has earned global appraisal for organising the traditional, extravagant cultural festivity of Pahela Baishakh at Ramna Park every year. One of the most awaited festivities in Bangladesh, the traditional cultural presentation of Chhayanaut marking the Pahela Baishakh has earned its fame as one of the grandest regular cultural celebrations in the world.
