According to the traditional Hindu calendar followed in North India this is year Vikram Samvat 2074. This calculation of Hindu New Year is based on the Luni-Solar calendar. A month in the calendar is calculated from the day after full moon to full moon (Pratipada tithi after Purnima to Purnima). This is known as Purnimanta system. Now this is the time when astronomically Sun crosses from southern hemisphere to northern hemisphere and intersects the celestial equator and ecliptic. Sun enters the Aries Rashi (Zodiac Sign). This is the day which also marks the first day of Navratri followed by celebration of Ram Navami.
Dates of Hindu Calender (Vikram Samvat) are called Tithi. Which are named as per condition of moon in a particular month. There are 15 Tithis in the waxing cycle of the moon also called as Shukla Paksha, and 15 tithis in the waning cycle of the moon also called as Krishna Paksha. First Tithi is just after the no moon day (Amavasya) or full Moon Day (Purnima) of a month. The Tithis are named as follows:-
- PratipadaTithi (First Day of Full moon or No Moon)
- Dwitya Tithi
- Tritiya Tithi
If it is Shukla Paksha last day of month will be Full Moon and hence tithi will be Purnima, where as if it is Krishna Paksha, last day of the month will be New Moon and hence tithi will be Amavasya.
As the days are calculated based on the actual longitudinal angular difference between the respective positions of the moon and the sun. It is common to see that the tithis vary in length, some shorter than our regular 24 hours, some extending beyond, and this leads to certain auspicious days being celebrated across 2 days of our Gregorian Calendar.
