Every year the festivity is observed at the Bakultala of Dhaka University's Fine Arts faculty to mark the link between agriculture and the Bengali psyche. Bangladesh. 15th November 2011

Jatiya Nabanno Utsab Udjapan Parishad is observing the 12th anniversary of the occasion in the capital.

Every year the festivity is observed at the Bakultala of Dhaka University's Fine Arts faculty to mark the link between agriculture and the Bengali psyche.

The festivity started at 7am on Monday at the Bakultala of Dhaka University's Fine Arts faculty and will continue until 7pm.

The programme comprises songs, dances and speeches.

The inauguration programme was followed by a colourful procession, where traditional Bengali foods were distributed.

The procession started from the Bakultala and ended at the same place after traveling up to Teacher Student Centre (TSC).

The Parishad's chairperson Laila Hasan said that this was the main festival of the farmers and urged the government to declare the day as a public holiday to show respect to the farmers 'who feed us.'

She claimed that the festival was no longer a capital-centric one and that "in last two or three year, it spread over the country."

Hasan expressed her hopes that the festival would restore one of the traditional festivals of this land.

The organisation started observing the festival since 1406 Bangabda (in the Bengali calendar).

Convenor Shahriar Salam spoke on the rationale behind the organisation's starting the celebration of the day.
