A brief introduction
Bengalis celebrate a variety of festivals. . Bengalis have a mentality of bringing distances closer together, so they want to participate in the festival with everyone. Bengalis have suffered many tragedies and have been subjected to numerous forms of oppression. However, the festival tide did not wash over them. Not only that, but Bengalis have a wide range of festivals to celebrate.
The festival’s objective
Bengalis have a simple way of life, but on festival days, they become larger than life. Bengalis hold various festivals to break free from their traditional lifestyles, express themselves to others, and get rid of various items. The Bengalis celebrate the festival on the day of the festival, with each other and in conversation after a long day. All of these festivals bring a lot of joy to Bengalis. Bengalis’ cultural diversity reflects the diversity of their festivals. National festivals, social festivals, religious festivals, folk festivals, and other types of Bengali festivals exist.
Bengal’s national festival
Through all of the national festivals, Bengalis aim to foster national unity. Independence Day, Republic Day, Gandhiji’s Birthday, Netaji’s Birthday, and Vivekananda’s Birthday are among the national holidays observed by Bengalis.
Bengali social celebration
Through social festivities, Bengalis play an important role in socializing and exchanging people. Wedding feasts, birthday festivities, Jamaishthi, Vaifonta, and other social events are observed by Bengalis. Bengali religious festivals Hindus, Bengalis, Muslims, Buddhists, Christians, Sikhs, and others have diverse religious ceremonies. Bengali Muslims celebrate religious festivals such as Eid ul Fitr, Eid ul Azha, Muharram, and others. Durga Puja, Saraswati Pujo, Basanti Pujo, Janmashtami, Kalipujo, Bishwakarma Pujo, Shiva’s Gajan, and other religious festivals are observed by Bengali Hindus. Buddhists commemorate Buddha Purnima and the birthday of Sikh Guru Nanak, while Christians celebrate Christmas and Good Friday.
The Bengali way of life is marked by a number of folk festivals. When the paddy is reaped in the month of Ajnaan, Bengalis observe the Nabanna feast with tremendous joy. Vadhu, Tusu, and other folk festivals are also celebrated by Bengalis.
Bengalis now have no desire for that event or mutual welfare, and they enjoy it well. Because there is now a trend to display who is wearing the most expensive garments and ornaments, the festival’s significance has waned, and the Bengalis’ enjoyment of it has diminished. So, in the end, I’ll state that the festival’s joy is the same as it has always been in Bengalis’ lives.
