Because it is Posto and it reminds me that the greatest joys come from the simplest things
Because this is the best time to eat Potol while it is still tender and eminently edible. You get done with it on the first day of Boishakh and then you are a free bird.
Because it reminds me of Mother Earth
Because there is no day that a Dim Kosha cannot make better
Because salmon is a fish I always have in my refrigerator and it goes so well with the Bengali recipe of doi-maach reminding me that I am lucky to celebrate two New Year days in a single calendar year.
Because it tells me that even when you think there is nothing new to be done, no quest to pursue, you find treasures in the ancient ones.
Because it is so very green and fresh just like the notun bochor
I would not make any dessert after this but would love to finish off with a bowl of Nolen Gur er ice cream
Because sometimes you need to put up your feet and take a large scoop
Have a lovely start to the Bengali New Year tomorrow
