Celebrations are an integral part of a Bengalis life. The famous adage : Baro mashe tero parbon describes the life cycle of a true Bengali. Here in Sweden, we attempt to celebrate as many festivals and occasions in the Bengali calendar. Our attempt to keep in touch with our cultural roots also helps the young generation get a flavour of their traditions.
