Chinese New Year celebration in Kolkata 2019
This year the New Year fell on 5th February. The Chinese New Year celebration party starts at least one week before the actual date and lasts for a few days. They start dancing preparation, the stage set up and many other decorations for homes and roads with Chinese props at Tangra and Territy Bazar for cultural shows. On the New Year celebration day, they play dragon and lion dances on the roads of Tangra and Territy Bazar.
In territory market area, at the time of Chinese New Year, you can see that people are preparing for the lion’s dancing, others are playing the drums. The dance starts with worshipping in front of the Chinese Temple. These dancing groups then make their way through the Territy market lanes and move into shops and local families, etc.
An interesting event will happen here. The local Chinese people put money on a red farm and dragged it with a bunch of lettuce leaves and hung them from the windows or the door. A dancer dressed as a lion then tries to grab the money and lettuce leaves. They form a human tower and the lion goes upstairs and tries to grab the money. There is interesting folklore related to this. It has said that when the Nian animal came out from the hill; they are tired and hungry, on the eve of the New Year; he tried to hunt the people. An old man is advised to fight with the animal using red cloths and drums and cymbals loud sound. This is explained about the celebration of drums and hungry lions lettuce leaves for food. They crack the firecrackers as a symbol to stop the evil forces.
Though the Chinese community is decreasing in Calcutta, like other communities, they celebrate traditional shows. Even young people who are not familiar with traditional Mandarin or Cantonese language, they follow the New Year style.
No celebration is complete without food. Chinese have a grand festival during this time. The dancing procession, which started in the Territory market, usually ends in the Bow Barracks. The Chinese founder Tong Achew, they visited Achirpur to pay tribute to their founder.

রবিবার সকালবেলা : –
কিছু দিন আগেও আমার বিছানায় আঠা লাগানো থাকতো। সে আঠা ৮ টার আগে নরম হতো না। সংসারের চাপে এখন রোজই সকাল বেলা ঘুম থেকে উঠতে হয়। রবিবার ও টার ব্যাতিক্রম হলো না। কিছু দিন আগেই এই জায়গা টার খোঁজ পেয়েছিলাম তাই ভাবলাম ব্রেকফাস্ট টা ওখানেই করা যাক।
জায়গা টা আমাদের কম বেশি সকলের ই চেনা। Terreti bazar , ছাতায়ালা গলি। সেন্ট্রাল এবং লালবারের ঠিক মাঝা মাঝি পড়বে।
ভোর বেলা থেকে ৮ অবধি খোলা থাকে প্রতিদিন আর রবিবার বাড়াবাড়ি।
