An excellent article especially for a layman like me.Kudos to the writer and the editor/s.
The New Year’s Day that came down to us by tradition is always celebrated on the Chaitra Shukla Pratipada. Why it is celebrated then? The Scriptures say that it was on this day that Bhagawaan Shri Brahmaa had created the world, and so this was its first day.

Very interesting article.Even though I was born and raised in a kashmiri pandit family where we followed hindu lunar calendar to a large extent, I did not understand the lunar calendar very well, that is till I read this wonderful article. Very well written article. Thank you Nandita ji for the well researched write up.
