They are calling this Sexy Lungi Style… whereas Lungis are the skirts that Bengali men wear. Put together by The Bengali Memes.

This was midnight at 72nd Street and Broadway in Jackson Heights, where Bangladeshis from all over the tri-state gathered to mark the start of International Mother Language Day. 60 years ago, the people of Bangladesh fought back against the Pakistani government dictating that Urdu, not Bangla, would be the official state language. Four years later, in 1956 Bangla would be recognized as a second state language. And in 1971, Bangladesh would get its independence.
