For all my non-Bangaali friends, 'kol balish' means body pillow. Though all my Bangaali friends know that it's not just a regular body pillow, it's a quintessential part of our lives, tai na? *sigh* 

kol balish is love

I can't even imagine a good night's sleep without hugging my kol balish and you'll relate to me if you're a true Bangaali at heart. 
I mean, it's the perfect representative of every Bangaali's need for support 'cause we gotta cling onto something, all the time. Agree or not. 😜

Well, it's also an ideal portrayal of our *constant* need for slacking off. C'mon peeps, everyone knows how much we Bangaalis love to relax (read: sleep around the clock).
And, any task that doesn't involve sleeping kinda makes us sad. Really sad.

Every morning, when the clock strikes 9, the trauma of leaving my kol balish is more real than anything on this planet. I crave, every SINGLE. MINUTE. of the day, to go back home and hug it.

It's not just a mere bolster, it's my one true love. And there someone defined it...

And they agree too. 

No matter what happens, nothing in the world can replace you, my dear kol balish. You'll always be the real meaning of my khushi. XOXO! ❤️
