Boishakhi Mela / My Visit to a Boishakhi Mela


Baishakhi Mela or Baishakhi Fair is a native culture of the Bangalee nation. Arranging Baishakhi Mela is an age-old tradition in this Bangla land. It is usually held on the first day of the Bangla New Year at a village market or under a big tree or on open spacious field. People of all ages, caste and creed gather the mela and enjoy it. Last year I, with my friend Milon, went to visit a Baishakhi fair at the nearby village on the other side of the river in front of our village. We crossed the river by a ferry boat and reached the mela at about 11 a.m. There was a big crowd in and around the mela spot. We saw that there were various stalls of different play things for children, clay dolls, toys, sweetmeat, native cakes, utensils, fancy goods and so on. Women crowded at the shop displaying various cosmetics and ornament. At one corner, there were the shops of some special items like cane and wooden furniture, handicrafts and readymade garments. People were visiting and buying things in a jolly mood. Children usually attended the fair catching hold of the hand of their father, elder brother or maternal uncle. They were plying flute and making merry, sometimes, wearing mask as if all the joys of the mela were for them. I bought some toys and a flute for my younger sister. We also enjoyed a puppet show there which was arranged at one corner outside the mela area. We passed there about three hours and returned home at afternoon. Really visiting a Baishakhi Mela is a charming experience which gets us acquainted with our native glorious culture anew.
