    a list or register, especially one arranged chronologically, as of appointments, work to be done, or cases to be tried in a court.

    This distinction should have been learnt in III Std. by associating ‘calendAr’ with ‘yeAr’.
    It’s not ‘chingan’; it’s ‘Chingam’ and it’s wrong to say that ‘Chingan 1st is the malayalam new year’. It should be ‘Chingam 1st is the beginning of the Malayalam New year’.

  3. Hi, Thanks for the above information. However Vishu is not the new year as per malayalam calender. This calender starts with Chingam. Chingan 1st is the malayalam new year. Please request you to replace the incorrect informations.
