BENGALI BABY NAMES FOR GIRLS : GIFT BASKET FOR BABY BOY : 9 MONTH BABY PORTRAITS.
Noukadubi, produced by Subhash Ghai and distributed in North America and Canada by Databazaar Media is a period film set in the 1920s, based on a short story by Rabindranath Tagore. The film premiered to a wonderful response at the IFFI, 2010 in Goa and is said to have got a standing ovation for story, performance and direction. Romesh, a law student in Kolkata is in love with Hemnalini but is forced to marry Susheela, a girl of his parents' choice. On his way back to Kolkata, the boat carrying Romesh and Susheela capsizes in a storm. Romesh is washed onto a deserted shore where he finds the newly married Kamala and mistakes her for Susheela. Kamala too has never seen her husband and takes Romesh to be her husband Nalinaksha. Starting with this incident of a 'noukadubi', Tagore weaves a story filled with intrigue, tragedy, dramatic coincidences and mistaken identities. Through the delicately woven interrelationships among the four major characters, the tragic Romesh, the educated and sophisticated Hemnalini, city-bred Nalinaksha and the naive and rustic Kamala, Tagore explores the institution of arranged marriages and the concepts of marital loyalty, patience and honour against the backdrop of Bengal in the 1920s.78% (10)

Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Tripura : After chakmas and marmas, the third largest tribal group of population in the chittagong hill tracts (CHT) region. Tripura people now living in Bangladesh had their original residence in the Indian state of Tripura, although many believe that they are in fact descendents of the Bodo group of people, considered as the forefathers of the peoples of Assam, Burma and Thailand. Tripuras initially migrated to Comilla, Sylhet and Chittagong areas as well as to some other regions like Noakhali, Dhaka, Faridpur and Barisal. In course of time, however, they concentrated largely in the CHT, especially in and around ramgarh and khagrachhari accounting for nearly 80% of all Tripuras now living in the CHT area. Tripuras call themselves Tipara and also Tipra, while Marmas call them Mrong, lusheis call them Tuibuk and pankhos Bai. The 1881 census recorded the distribution of Tripura people as: CHT 15,054, Comilla 1,895, Faridpur 101, Barisal 45, Noakhali 16, Dhaka 4, and Sylhet and other areas 268. The number of Tripuras in the CHT area was 79,772 in1991. This figure accounts for 6.6% of the total tribal population in the CHT. Tripuras are divided into at least 36 groups (dafas) of which 16 are in Bangladesh. Some of these groups have a number of subgroups. All groups and subgroups have their own dialects, dresses and ornaments. Each of these groups/subgroups is usually named after an incidence they encountered or occupation they practise. The language of Tripuras (Kokborok) belongs to the Bodo group, which has its origin in the Assam branch of the Tibeto-Burma language under the Sino-Tibetan family. The script of the Tripura language has some similarities with that of the Chakma language but although the alphabet appears to be similar, the two languages differ very much in pronunciation and the reading procedure. Kokborok was widely used in writing letters, demonstrating magic, and preparing lists of indigenous medicine. But due to lack of use, the script is on the verge of extinction. Tripuras are mainly Hindus but their beliefs and religious practices are different from caste Hindus in many ways. They worship the god shiva and the goddess Kali and 14 other gods and goddesses. They also believe in a number of evil spirits, incorporeal beings and demons, who have their abode in jungles and who do harm to people by inflicting diseases. Tripuras sacrifice animals and birds in the name of their gods and goddesses. They believe that rivers, lakes and canals were once human beings and but sacrificed their lives and turned into nature bodies to serve mankind. Like Hindus, Tripuras believe in life hereafter and consider that those who have done good work will live in ease and comfort in the next life but that wrong doers will face ceaseless toil and constant harassment. Tripuras do not have a uniform lineage system. In some groups, sons draw their lineage from the father's side, while in some others, daughters draw their lineage from the mother's side. The eldest son of a family can inherit all his father's property but the other sons/daughters do not get any share at all. However, the right of the eldest son to inherit any property is forfeited if he separates himself from the parent's family when the father is still alive. Provisions of inheritance by other sons or the daughters take effect only in circumstances when the family does not have any son or when the eldest son is disqualified on the above ground. The traditional dress of a Tripura man include dhuti (a narrow piece of cloth clad round the waist and between the legs with a fringed end hanging down from the rear) and a khaban (turban). Tripuras wear a ruggedly sewn jacket in winter days. The dress of a Tripura woman is similar to that of a Chakma woman and in most cases it is a petticoat with a blouse on the upper part of the body. In the past, married Tripura women usually did not wear anything to cover the breasts. Unmarried girls distinguish themselves by wearing colourful clothes. Both men and women wear crescent shaped silver earrings. The women wear necklace made of beads and shells, nose skewers and ornaments on the hair, neck, wrist and ankle. The most important social festival of the Tripura people is the Baishuki that lasts for three days beginning from the second last day of the Bengali calendar. On the first day of the festival called hari baishuk children decorate homes with flowers, wear clean dress and visit neighbours, who treat them with cakes. Elders also visit neighbours and are treated with drinks. From this first day of the festival a group of no less than 15 dancers display folk dBengali tola. Varanasi, India
