    'Vilambi Nama Samvasara puthaandu Vazhthugal" Happy Tamil New year's day to all.

    Please join me to wish all the Tamilians , Punjabis on the occasion of their new year's day which is called Vilambi Nama Samvasaram. Today Baisaki is also celebrated across the country as the new year day for the Punjabis. From today new beginning is made as every star and the people belonging to each Raasi would be knowing their position of good and bad periods up to April 13th next year. All the temples would be agog with special poojas and rituals to mark the occasion of new year and also reciting of Panchaang for the year for all the Raasis.

    As Kailash Kumar noted Today/Tomorrow are celebrations of festivals across the country for people at many states.
    In fact though the traditional New Year starts today for Malayalis , as the astrological timing of change to new month(Sankrama) occurs after sunrise, the 'Vishu Kani' is observed tomorrow, because the 'Kani' or the first sight after waking up should be in the new Month of Medam(Mesha Rasi) corresponding to Chithirai in Tamil.

    My greetings to all ISCians on their respective festivals and auspicious day- today and/or tomorrow.

    Yesterday was the last day of Assamese calendar. Assamese celebrated Goru Bihu on that day. This signifies the respect the Assamese people show to the cows. Today is the first day of Assamese New Year. Today is Bohag Bihu.

    Tomorrow the Bengalis will celebrate Bengali New Year Poila Baisakh (actually it is the date and month pronounced together). However, the Bangladeshis tampered the Bengali calendar needlessly during the Ershad regime in 1980s and they celebrated Poila Baisakh today.

    Beware! I question everything and everybody.
