7 reasons why Saraswati Puja is Valentine’s Day for Bengalis.

Saraswati Puja is no doubt, called the Bengali’s Valentine’s Day. With all the secret “Chokhe Chokhe Kotha bola ” and endless “jhari mara “, we Bengalis just know how to make the most of this day.

Prying and peeking

Accept it, we all have that “looking from the corner of our eyes ” experience. Amongst the prayers, we not only steal the boys’ attention but also win their hearts. Ma eibare Ekta chele jutie Dao!

A feeling of ethnicity

Even the girls who never wear ethnic wear try on sarees and no denying, they look hella cute. I mean, this is the time to bring out the Indian diva in you. So go ahead.

Jhari mara

No no no, Saraswati Puja is not only about “Puja”,”prayers” and “prasad”, it’s also for “jhari mara”. Para pujos are the best. Boys in Punjabis and girls in pretty sarees are a treat for sore eyes. And trust me when I tell you everyone decks up to impress the opposite sex and that’s totally cute and okay, especially to this day.

Single’s paradise

A single squad, where ya at? Boys and Girls, no matter which sex you are, you will never run out of options for your partners.

Miles away from the books

Finally, the day when mom says,” Aj Porte hobena “. Best day of our lives , that’s for sure.

Cultural functions

The evening is the highlight of the day. Lights, loudspeakers and loads of love. Para functions are just another occasion to make the opposite sex go crazy. Just the wing, just a dab of blush, just the perfect bindi on the forehead- make sure the boys swoon over you.

A day to propose

Don’t think. Don’t ponder. Just confess. It’s the perfect time to profess your love for your partner. Don’t worry, Cupid stands with his bow beside you.
