About Book:

Calendars are created by civilisations to give meaning to the continuous flow of time according to their worldviews. Over the past millennia, India has developed its own unique collection of many calendars for regulating its religious and cultural life. The current book presents a comprehensive account of their structure and relative importance at the present time and places them in the context of other calendars prevalent outside India. Suggestions have also been made for making some changes to bring them in line with our current astronomical knowledge. This book will be very useful to students and anyone who is curious about calendars.
