এসেছে বৈশাখ মাস আজি এই ধরাতলে
বর্ষ নিয়েছে বিদায়, বিদায়ের অশ্রুজলে।
বৈশাখের আগমনে জাগে নব নব আশা,
পুরাতন বর্ষে জমা যত বিষাদের ভাষা।

The beginning of this English New Year was not on a completely positive note this time either. As victims of Russia-Ukraine war, thousands of people had already reached out for the hands of world humanity, they are joined by the sufferers of Turkey-Syria earthquake who are trying to take refuge in that humanity again. As the financial crisis grips the world, many familiar faces have been forced out of the workplace and onto the path of uncertainty. If the people around us are not well, can we be well? However, the world moves forward according to the rules of the universe, the tune of time rings in its own rhythm, we still live waiting for the return of better days, we dream of a healthy and happy life for our young ones. Hope is another name for celebration with which we rise like the phoenix from daily battles of life.
