Google Doodle for Pohela Boishakh 2015 (Bangla New Year) is a tribute to celebrations of Pohela Boishakh in Bangladesh.
Pohela Boishakh is the first day of the Bengali calendar. The day is marked on April 14 in Bangladesh and on April 15 in India. Pohela means ‘first’ and Boishakh is the first month of the Bengali calendar.
Google is marking the Bangla New Year’s Day with a doodle on its Bangladesh home page.
The Google Bangla New Year doodle shows traditional Bengali haat pakhas (hand-held fans) in place of the two ‘Os’ in the Google logo. The second fan is embroidered with ‘শুভ নববর্ষ ১৪২২’ (Shubho Noboborsho 1422) meaning ‘Happy New Year 1422’.
This new Bangla New Year is the 1422nd Bengali year and is 594 less than the AD or CE year in the Gregorian calendar if it is before Pohela Boishakh, or 593 less if after Pohela Boishakh.
