Dhaka: Poush Sonkranti(পৌষ সংক্রান্তি) Festival-2012

Saturday, 14 January 2012

Once again its time for Poush Sankranti(পৌষ সংক্রান্তি) utsav. I have went to the Old Dhaka to feel the atmosphere of the day. People from old Dhaka use to fly kites at sky throughout the whole day. At the end of the day they use to do fireworks. They call this festival Sakrain(সাকরাইন). If you want to know more about Poush Sankranti(পৌষ সংক্রান্তি), just click here.

It is important to chose a building to observe the activities around. I have chosen a building at 108 R. M. Das road from Loharpool of sutrapur(১০৮, আর.এম. দাস রোড, লোহারপুল, সুত্রাপুর, ঢাকা). GPS coordinate of the building is(23°42'8.65"N, 90°25'9.97"E).
