Google Bangladesh Snubs Their Bengali New Year

Today is the Bengali New Year, or Pohela Boishakh (Bangladesh and India's West Bengal state). Now, I have no idea about the politics, if any, in Bangladesh but one person is very upset that Google.com.bd does not have a logo for the Bengali New Year.

A Google Web Search Help thread has this guys message:

Today is the New Year of Bangladesh and google did not change its logo !!!

It is such a big day for the country and the search giant does not even seem to care !!!

This is so not expected, i thought that the search engine giant cared for its valued customers!

I am hurt, deeply hurt !!!

If there are no politics involved around this, then maybe Google simply forgot?

I wholeheartedly agree. Google-bd should've noted the event most certainly.

In fact I was using Google-Bd quite a lot on 14th April researching for a term paper. When I did notice something big was missing, I switched to doing Yahoo. Shame on Google.

I agree. Bengalees, I believe, occupy the fifth place among major language based communities. Google should have taken note. Press on friends! Manas.

300 million people worldwide speaks Bengali and Google doesn't give a damn to it. How pathetic :(
