  30. Posted by Champa on April 3, 2013 at 2:47 pm

    Hi Meera,

    Thanks for the festive update. However, why is Ugadi celebrated earlier here than in India?


    • Posted by meeraghu on April 3, 2013 at 2:50 pm

      Based on the timings and astrological calculations(which I have no clue), it comes 1 day earlier.


  31. Posted by Bhavana on April 3, 2013 at 1:28 pm

    Please provide the dates of Sankashtahara Chaturthi also whenever possible.
