Banquet and get-together was held with expatriate Bangladeshis living in Madrid, Spain. The banquet was organized by the Greater Sylhet Association on Tuesday (September 6) at a place called Cachalegach near Madrid. Expatriate Sylhet residents and Bangladeshi siblings and their family members joined it. With their lively and spontaneous participation, it becomes a great gathering.
The participants gathered at the Glorietta Embachadores in Madrid and took 9 buses in the morning to reach the destination 100 kilometers away. President of the association Abdul Mujakkir greeted and welcomed everyone at the beginning of the journey.
Due to work abroad, we do not see each other for a long time. Hence, the Greater Sylhet Association organizes an annual banquet every year to establish harmony among all and maintain family harmony. This time the presence of women and children was noticeable. It is considered by many to be the biggest carnival in Madrid. Participants eat lunch at designated locations. Everyone was full of satisfaction after eating delicious Bengali food of every rank.
After eating, they pass the time by swimming in the water, hoi hullod, hadudu, women’s pillow games, small children’s games and cultural competitions. Hadudu is played in the sand. At the end of the game, the officials of the organization distributed the prizes among the winners of the competition. The evening draws near to rejoicing.
