Know : New Year 2014 but it could be the year 5115 too!


We all are on new year’s eve today as per our common global Calendar (Gregorian) 🙂 Wish you all a happy new year. We are just stepping into another day, same as yesterday but with a new number to a calendar we follow! We could learn something today that there are several calendars do exist and not all the calendar is stepping on to the year 2014! 

The Buddhist Calendar is in the year 2557, Kali Yuga Calendar says its 5114-5115, Korean Calendar its year 4346! Feeling Strange? Nothing is there to feel so. There are several calendars out there. (See the list below)

calendar is a system of organizing days for social, religious, commercial or administrative purposes. This is done by giving names to periods of time, typically daysweeksmonths, and years. A date is the designation of a single, specific day within such a system. Periods in a calendar (such as years and months) are usually, though not necessarily, synchronized with the cycle of the sun or the moon. Many civilizations and societies have devised a calendar, usually derived from other calendars on which they model their systems, suited to their particular needs.
