Hey ColorOS WonderFans:

HOW'S the JOSH? This is a special day for us and we call it  "புத்தாண்டு" (Puthandu). The first day of Chithirai in the Tamil Calendar is known as Tamil New Year. The Tamil New Year is celebrated on the first day of the Hindu Solar Calendar. The Tamil New Year is celebrated with feasts in Hindu homes and the entrances to the houses are decorated Neem Leaves with kolams. Every year in the month of Chithrai (the first month of the Hindu calendar is known as Chithrai).

It is celebrated all Tamilians across the world, many other Indian communities celebrate their traditional new year around the same time. While it is called Vishu in Kerala, it is Bihu for those in Assam, Baishakhi in Punjab and Pohela Boishakh in West Bengal. "It is not only celebrated by a specific religion, but all the other religion also takes part in it". Totally we all take part as a family on this special day.


Time Of Celebration:

Based on the solar cycle, the Tamil calendar has a sixty years cycle, with each year comprising twelve months. The Tamil New Year is celebrated after the vernal equinox and it generally falls on April 14 of the Gregorian Year. It is similar to the Vernal Equinox which is usually celebrated on or around 21 March. The date differs due to the position of the Tamil region in the northern hemisphere and some ancient and impressive astronomical observations involving the orbits of Jupiter and Saturn.


Ancient Festival:

An Ancient festival is being celebrated, a modern highlight of Puthandu is a big car festival held at Tiruvadamarudur near Kumbakonam. On the night before Puthandu, a tray with fruit, betel leaves, gold and silver jewelry, money and flowers is arranged. This is to be viewed first thing in the morning as it is believed that seeing these auspicious things will bring prosperity and happiness during the year.

Sri Lankan New Year:

This day is not only a special day for Tamilans, but it is also the special day for Sinhalese New Year. In Sri Lanka, the day is the time of the traditional first plowing of the ground to mark the start of the new agricultural season. It is a tradition that the first financial transaction of the year is when elders give gifts of money to the unmarried young, as a sign of good luck.

In Sri Lanka, the public holidays for Tamil New Year also recognize that this is also Sinhalese New Year, also known as Aluth Avurudda. Like Tamil New Year, it marks the end of the harvest and the arrival of spring as indicated by the sun moving from Meena Rashiya ( Pisces) to Mesha Rashiya (Aries).


Know More About Tamil New Year:

April 14 is the day of celebration for Tamilans all over the world. Tamilans from different regions come forward to take part in this celebration. The day is known as when Lord Brahma (the Creator of the world, according to Hindu mythology) started creation. People exchange greetings by saying the word 'Puthandu Vazthukal' which is know as Happy New Year with great faour on this day. The highlight of Tamil New Year Festival in Tamil Nadu is the 'Maanga Pachadi' (a dish made of raw mangoes, jaggery, and neem flowers), which tastes sweet, sour and bitter at the same time. This signifies the various aspects of our lives.

The Tamil New Year day begins with viewing the 'kanni' (the auspicious sight) at dawn, out of the expectation that starting the New Year by looking at auspicious things will bring good luck all through the year. The auspicious things include gold and silver jewelry, betel leaves, nuts, fruits and vegetables, flowers, raw rice and coconuts. It is followed by people taking a ritual bath and then they visit the temple to pray for a happy and prosperous New Year. Totally the days ends with happiness and enjoyment.
