Pohela Boishakh

Today, my Intro to Personal Computing professor showed the class, because we obediently stayed for the entire lecture on Microsoft Access, a YouTube video of him dancing for Pohela Boishakh. Pohela Boishakh is the Bengali New Year celebrated on April 14th. I wrote the name Pohela Boishakh in my notes because I thought it'd be easy to find the video again, but, it turns out, that's similar to writing down "New Year" and expecting to find a specific video.

Of course the Bengali search doesn't require wading through not-funny early YouTube adopter celebrities' videos on Miley Cyrus. Bummer I can link to that, but not to Prof. Ally's folk dancing. It was actually a lot of fun to watch. It convinced me finally to join Lauren for a little Nia.
