Every Day Life 12 April 2015 Students of Dhaka University’s Institute of Fine Arts on Sunday prepare to celebrate Pahela Boishakh, the first day of Bangla calendar, on Apr 14. Mughal Emperor Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar, the renowned grandson of Zahiruddin Muhammad Babur, the 3rd Mughal Emperor, introduced the Bengali Calendar. For relatively easier tax collection, Akbar changed the practice of agricultural tax collection according to the Hijri calendar. He ordered an improvement because the Hijri calendar, being lunar, did not agree with the harvest sessions and eventually the farmers faced severe difficulties in paying taxes out of season.Photo by Monirul Alam @meghmonir
