About us

Bengalees of New England (BNE) is an association of people in Greater Boston, whose mother tongue is Bengali — or who are otherwise interested in the heritage of Bengal. Our aim is to promote traditional and modern art forms of Bengalees, including (but not limited to) language, customs, dress, food, music, dance, poetry, drama, literature. BNE builds and fosters friendship and understanding between the people of Bengal, India and other countries.
