One of the most awaited festivities in Bangladesh, Chhayanaut and its traditional cultural extravaganza marking the Pahela Baishakh on 14 April has earned its fame as one of the grandest regular cultural celebrations in the world since its inception in1961.
The traditional festivities in Ramna Park did not take place in 1971 during the Liberation War of Bangladesh, and 2020 marked the second year when the institution had to cancel its usual celebration due to the Covid-19 situation.
