  77. Hello,
    Other than Srirangapatna, T.Narsipura, Nanjangud are there any other places/person performing Piturpaksha(in and around Bangalore/Mysore). If so please provide the contact details(Mob no.) etc.

    Comment by Venkatesh at September 22, 2012 at 12:41 pm
  78. There is a Shunya Tithi on October 2, 2012. It is observed as Bharani Shraddh but not as Chaturthi Shraddh. Chaturthi Shraddh is on October 4, 2012. As Mahalaya Paksha begins on the day where Purnima also coincides with Pratipada day, it would happen.. Though, it is very rare…

    Comment by Naveen Sanagala at March 26, 2012 at 10:45 am
