‘Navreh’ message for the displaced Pandits of Kashmir
K N Pandita The New Year (Navreh = Nava Varsha) of the now displaced community of the Hindus of Kashmir Valley is celebrated according to the Saptrishi calendar entering the 5100th year. This five–thousand–year–old calendar was suddenly discarded and rubbished with the advent of Muslim rule in the mid-14th century. However, historians like the author of Baharistan-i-Shahi written in the early 16th century, did use the Saptrishi calendar alongside the Hijra calendar which the Muslim missionaries had brought to Kashmir. On a penultimate night, Kashmiri Hindus invariably observe the tradition of filling the platter called ‘thaal bharun'. At least seven items like a handful of ric...

Ram Lalla Mandir: Critics ‘Sink’ in Ocean of Faith
Straight Talk
