What is Tamil New Year?

Tamil New Year

The Tamil people celebrate the Tamil Punthandu –literally translates to Tamil New Year– on the first day of Chitterai in the Tamil calendar, which marks the beginning of the new year. It usually corresponds with the 14th of April on the Gregorian calendar. Hindus around the world observe the new year on the same date, as well. However, it is known in different parts of India by other names, such as Vishu in the Indian state of Kerala; and Vaisakhi in the regions of India where Sikhism is practiced.
