What is Sangrand

Sangrand (Sankranti in Hindi) is the first day of a month according to Indian traditional calendar. Note that there are two types of traditional calendars - Solar (based upon Sun) and Lunar (based upon Moon). Sangrand (Sankranti) is the beginning of a new month according to the Solar calendar. The day next to Masya or Puranmashi is considered as the first day of a month according to the Lunar calendar and most of the religious festivals in India like Diwali, Holi, Gurpurab etc. are based upon the Lunar calendar.
Chet is the first month of the year according to Bikrami Samvat calendar and hence the sangrand of Chet month is considered as the new year day. So according to desi calendar of 2021, the new year will start on Sunday, 14th March 2021. Many readers will say that Vaisakh is the first month of the year and festival of Vaisakhi is the new year day. But actually this festival is related to the harvesting season of wheat crop.
