The Bangla Calendar, often known as the Bangla calendar, is a sidereal solar calendar used by the Bangla people as their official calendar in Bangladesh. The year starts at Pohela Boishakh, which falls on 14 April in Bangladesh according to the tropical calendar. It is comparable to the Hindu Calendar. Even if the Bengali calendar is already there, the people and the system in Bengal follows the regular calendar.
Even the international calendar is followed in the education sector, office sector and the government administration. The vacations and holidays are also held according to the international calendar. However, the Bengali festivals such as Pohela Boishakh, Pohela Falgoon are also celebrated here with all traditional traditions and rituals.

In conclusion, the names of the Bengali calendar’s twelve months are derived from the names of the nokkhotro (lunar mansions), which are the positions of the moon in relation to specific stars during the lunar cycle. The Surya Siddhanta, an ancient Indian text on astronomy, inspired these names. The Bengali calendar is divided into six seasons, each of which lasts two months.
