Subject: Poila Boishak Program
Dated: Apr 11, 2002
Dear Member,

On the occasion of the upcoming Poila Boishak day (April 14), Prabasi
wishes you "Shubho Nava Barsha". As announced earlier, we are having a
cultural program on that day as part of our Annual Day celebration.
The intent this year is to celebrate 'Poila Baisakh' along with our
annual day event.

On the same note, if you have friends or relatives in Kolkata, it is a
good time to send them gifts along with good wishes through our gifts
services site. We have a partnership with Bengalnet Communications for
these services, and your patronage of this service helps Prabasi meet
part of its expenses in running our web-site. On the occasion of the
Bengali New Year, if you are interested in getting a new "Panjika" for
the new year for direct delivery in US, check out item number 42201.
