The first day of the year - Pahela Baishakh - literally hundreds of thousands in kurtas and sarees ranging from carmine to crimson welcomed another on the streets around Dhaka University.
The girls of Bangladesh under-16 national team are also celebrated the Pahela Baishakh 1424 of their own way. Though being part of a residential training programme at the Bangladesh Football Federation headquarters, the girls are seldom allowed out and will celebrate the day their own way.

Krishna Rani Sarkar, captain of the under-16 team, said the whole group celebrated their first Pahela Boishakh together.
Central midfielder Mishrat Jahan Mousumi said the team celebrated all festivals together at the camp just like a team. "As we have been staying as a team for a very long time so we have become a family and celebrated Pahela Baishakh like a family," she said.
"Celebrating Pahela Boishakh at home and here is completely different. But both the places have their own flavours," Mousumi told further.
Akhi Khatun, midfield partner of Mousumi, said, "We got to choose the menu on Pahela Boishakh. All of us eat our favourite food, which is 'Panta-Ilish' in most cases."
Almost echoing her teammates' words, defender Nazma said, "We celebrated the best way we can. We ate our favorite foods and had a lot of fun almost the whole day."
Shopna, Tohura, Shamsunnahar and other members of the team were also excited about the Bengali New Year.
The U-16 girls also hoped the rest of the country also had a festive new year's day too and wised everyone a very festive day.
