Not open for further replies.
the present day apr 14 new year is more astro-logically coherent than astro-nomically jan 14.for science adherents jan 14 is on the dot.for the lover of vedic scriptures dec 21-22 is on the dot.for the lover of lord krishna ,start of shukla pratipadam of month of margasherasham is on the dot :).in fact as a lord dattadreyan lover,i feel margasheerasham is the best start of the year for me :)
lest anyone give credit to MK for interfering with chithrai as our tamil new year, here is an excerpt, from another net blog

In 1921 Tamil scholars who gathered under the leadership of the "Tamil Kadal" (Sea) Maraimalai Adikal researched on the subject of the Tamil New Year. This committee included Tamil veterans like Tamil Thenral V. Kalyanundaram, Tamil Kavalar K.Subramaniumpillai, Saiva Periyar Satchithananthampillai, Navalar Somasundara Barathiyar, Navalar N.M. Vegkadasami Naddar and Muthamil Kavalar K.A.P. Visvanatham. After long deliberations they unanimously arrived at the conclusion that the Tamil New Year commenced on the first day of the Tamil month "Thai."

When is the Tamil New Year? - Sangam.org

i do not know whether the bulk of tamil nadu celebrated 'chithrai thiru naal' or varusha pirappu. the common man still had his holiday. time alone will tell, if tamils will switch to thai.

our sri lankan cousins, especially in toronto, have preferred to maintain status quo. but then they are more traditional when it comes to preserving traditions :)
Iniya Thamizh Puthandu Vazthukal!

திரு பிரவீனுக்கும் மற்ற இந்த மன்றத்தைசார்ந்த எல்லா அங்கத்தினற்கும் என் மனமார்ந்த வாழ்த்துக்கள். அமைதியான மனத்தையும் ஆர்வமான உள்ளத்தையும் எல்லோரும் பெற அந்த இறைஅருளை வேண்டுகிறேன். இதற்கு முன்பும் கூறியது போல், இது அகில இந்தியாவுக்கும் புத்தாண்டுதான். இவ்வாண்டின் பெயர் 'கர' எனப்படுவது சூரியன் மேஷ ராசிக்குள் புகும் நாளே.
