Establish the ‘Hindu Rashtra’ so as to get state recognition
for ‘Yugadi’ (The first day of the Chaitra month) as the New Year Day

Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Jayant Athavale

The first day of the month of Chaitra is known as ‘Yugadi’. The word ‘Yugadi’ is derived from ‘Yuga’ and ‘adi’. It is on this day that Deity Brahma created the Universe. The first day of Creation, Chaitra Shukla Pratipada, is also the day when the counting of time began. Though this be the case, 1st January is celebrated as New Year’s Day all over the country. This is a cultural defeat for Independent India. Chaitra Shukla Pratipada should be given State recognition as the New Year’s Day for two reasons – since it is the beginning of the Universe, as well as to change the history of our cultural defeat. For this to happen, it is necessary to constitutionally declare India a ‘Hindu Rashtra’.

Since India’s virtuous Kings knew the importance of the ‘Yugadi’, they began their Almanacs from this day (such as Ujjain King Vikramaditya’s ‘Vikram Samvat’, King Shalivahana’s ‘Shalivahana Samvat’ in 78 AD, King Yudhishthir’s ‘Yudhishthir Samvat’). Now is the time to recollect their greatness! O’ Hindus ! Through utmost efforts at the physical, mental, spiritual and political level, get State recognition for Chaitra Shukla Pratipada as the New Year’s Day, and establish the ‘Hindu Rashtra’ in India.
