Poila Baishak or the first day of the Bengali Lunar Calendar brings with itself a lot of new beginnings, including new clothes. All these years “Poila Baishak” gifts would consist of a cotton dress (when I was younger) to cotton Kurtis. It was this time when my father gifted me my first Nababarsho (New Year) saree. Besides the auspicious day, this was the first day of the 100 Saree Pact

This is a Taant-Khesh saree which has been teamed with a Kalamkari blouse.
