April brings showers, but in my heart, April also brings in sweet nostalgia of Poila Boishak or Bengali New Year. The smell of new clothes, the rolled calendars that the shopkeepers hand out as it marks the beginning of their financial year, the stiff paper boxes full of sweets and savories neatly tied with bright yellow or pink strings and yes – all the good things made at home to celebrate a new beginning.
Ah! how the feel and the mildly sweet aroma of the steaming hot sweet potatoes make me want to go back home and try to reach back to those gone away day… to the people of my heart who are no more.
