Over the coming nine nights, NHSF (UK) will be celebrating Shakti through telling the stories of nine female intellectuals from Hindu history.

What can we, as Hindu students today, learn from the stalwart philosophers of the past?
And how many of us, as young Hindus, know that some of our most influential thinkers were women?

Each day we will be updating our website, where you will be able to read more about each figure 🙌

You must be wondering how we manage both calendars together?
Confusion arises by not appreciating our pluralism.
Let us love the unity manifesting as diversity.

Happy Hindu New Year to all 🥳
The Vaisakhi Mela of the ancient Katas Raj temple, now in Pakistan, was known to attract tens of thousands of Hindu pilgrims from all over Punjab.

Our Hindu identity is an umbrella celebrating pluralism and diversity. 2021 will see the Solar and Lunar calendars align to have almost all Hindu communities celebrating their New Year on the same day!

We wish all our students a Happy Hindu New Year 🥳

Almost all New Year celebrations fall in the season of Vasanta (Spring), when nature awakens from the slumber of winter and is abundant with blossom and greenery.

We have an article on our website, explaining each Utsav in greater detail.

#navreh #chetichand #HinduNewYear
There is no single Hindu calendar, rather a set of many regional and denominational variations of lunisolar calendars. All are as Hindu as the other.
Today is the beginning for those communities who mark their months on the Lunar calendar (Chandramana).
