Washington: "Shubho Nobo Borsho!" said US
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as she greeted Bengalis
across the globe on the occasion of the New Year.
"Shubho Nobo Borsho!" Clinton said in her message to
the Bengali community.

"As you celebrate this special day, know that the
United States stands with all Bengalis everywhere as we work
for a more peaceful and prosperous future."

"On behalf of President (Barack) Obama and the people
of the United States, I send my best wishes to all
Bengali-speaking people around the world as you celebrate
Poila Boishakh in the coming days. I wish all Bengalis
prosperity and happiness in this new year of promise and
possibility," Clinton said.
The Secretary of the State also said it is an
opportunity to honour the rich history of Bengali culture with
music, drama and traditional foods. She believed Bengali

family and friends to celebrate the many accomplishments of
the Bengali people," she added.
