If you're interested in Durga Puja in Kolkata, pandalhop.com now has 147 pandals and 1336 photos. Most of the pandals have photos taken during the last week.

The Bangla-Tangla dictionary search now keeps a history of your searches so you can press the back button on the browser to see words you have looked up before.

The Samsad dictionaries at UChicago display a romanized form (with diacritical marks) for each word. It's not strictly phonetic—each Bangla letter maps directly to a roman letter. But ড় and ঢ় are represented in a way that doesn't really work, with an unattached dot modifier (eg, দৃঢ় = dṛḍh়), so I have replaced them on Bangla-Tangla with ɽ and ɽh, respectively (দৃঢ় = dṛɽha). These are the symbols used for those letters in Radice's book Teach Yourself Bengali. You can also see in the above example that Samsad omits the default vowel at the end of words ending in ঢ়. This does not follow pronunciation and seems pretty arbitrary, so I have put them back in.

The Swiftkey keyboard seems to be a great option for typing Bangla on Android. It predicts words in Bangla, and you can 
input words by swiping.
