  62. Sunil Kumar Mishra says:

    Shrimanji,
    In north no doubt Chait month starts after Holi but “New Year” is celeberated on the very first day of Navmi that I think fall on 11 itself. So as per my knowledge Hindu New Year in celebrated mostly on the same day in most part of India. Why can’t we Hindu have a common calender.
