A few about Gregorian Calendar. Hindi vs English Months

Before Welcome New Year let’s have a look on Interesting History.

Everywhere in this world there are huge celebrations in the name of New Year Welcome. In Indian Government gazette the 1st January is not a holiday but peoples are celebrating. It’s good to see that we people are optimistic and we must see hope in coming years. Celebrating in mid night is different from other religious or national perspective. Actually, we just want to welcome with full of enthusiasm.

But my point is – Why 12 PM is the moment of blast. It’s a just technical aspect that dates are changing after 12’o clock in the night. According to the Gregorian calendar after 31st mid night First January comes.  Practically our days start with the first light of Sun in the morning after the night yesterday we had.

Ancient, Sanatan Indian Calendar follows the practical Dharma: of the human/citizens of this planet i.e. Earth.

Early morning 4-5 O’clock – The Brahma Muhurt is the perfect and should be ideal for all. At least for Indians first light of the day is the divine. When we receive the light in the early morning it treats like a great source of energy with positive direction for the whole day in which we enter.

History at a glance – In the world before the European Kingdom ruled. There were total 10 months in a Year. But In India (Bharat Varsha) There was total 12 start from Chait Maas to Falgun Maas and still remains twelve. Ours based on facts, totally scientific and based on planetary motions and seasons.

Following table shows the true picture of Gregorian Calendar Month and their Interesting Story. We say it Interesting because of crazy(sanki) Kings from Rome.

First Calendar was formed by Roman King “Romulus” with 10 months. No January and February.

The month of self-realization

King Julius Seizure, whose month of birth is “Vivtilus” as 7th (earlier 5th). He received the owner of kingdom in the month of 11th i.e January. He ordered January should be first. So Jan became the first.  Further the month name Vivtilus renamed to July by sourcing his name.

After King Julius Seizure, Octavian became the king. For his good work he honoured by “Eperator and Augustus” Samman. Meaning “Sacred”.  So this way…

Earlier in August there was 30 days. But just for the sake of pride of the king Augustus Seizure. One day cut from February and added to the August. Now you can easily understand how baseless and non-scientific facts added to the Gregorian calendar. During British-India period, Gregorian calendar standard applied. Say proudly, we Indians are not blind follower of western society.

~~~ दीप जले, तमस तले, प्रकाश का आगमन हो;  खुशियाँ हो, शुभ सन्देश मिले, नूतन वर्ष सनातन हो ~~~

(Deep Jale, Tamas tale, Prakash Ka Aagman ho; Khushiyan ho, Shubh Sandesh mile, Nutan Varsh Sanatan ho.)

 Aap Sabhi Saathiyon ko Angrezi Nav-Varsh ki Shubhkamnayen.

Happy New Year “2013”
