Telugu calendar is different from Gregorian calendar and the names of months are not same with as we usually used. Thus, 2016 is called Manmatha Nama Samvatsara in Telugu calendar and Ugadi is used for beginning of Telugu year substituted for January. When we look at the population who use this calendar, Andhra Prades’s people use this calendar to determine religious fests and discover lucky days.
When we look at the significant dates in June, there are four specific dates. The first important date is Vaikuntha Ekadash and it corresponds to the December to January. This date is a lucky day for believers because that day is a gateway for entering Lord Vishnu’s abode. Thus, they believe that if someone keeps a sacred fest during that day, he or she never face with lord of death. Because of this reason, they do not eat and drink anything throughout all day. Another important date is Paradosha Vrat and the sunset and sunrise times are interpreted as auspicious on that day. Third specific day is Maha Shivratri and this date indicates the protection by Lord Shiva. In that day, people fast during whole day but they eat some fruits and drink only milk. Last lucky day for Telugu calendar is Shasti and it is dedicated to Lord Murugan. People who are truly believers fast during that day because they pray for a happy life.
In conclusion, if we adapt Telugu calendar to Gregorian, we cannot find any exact date as we mentioned above and the dates will be in between two or couples months. Also, Telugu calendar has more significant dates if we compare with these two calendar and people who use Telugu has more religious dates and they use this dates as getting luck and miracle.
