This year (2020-2021) at Hindi Pathashala, our classes are named on the basis of Hindu Calendar months. Here is an explanation on how this calendar system works:
The Hindu calendar is based on both the sun and the moon. In this system the solar year (time taken for the earth to orbit around the sun), is divided into 12 lunar months. A lunar month, is the time taken by the moon to orbit once around the earth and pass through its complete cycle of phases. In the Hindu calendar, the month follows the phases of the moon. Each lunar month is divided into two parts or pakshas- the Shukla paksh and the Krishna paksh. The phase between new moon to full moon, is the Shukla paksh. The phase between the full moon to the new moon, is the Krishna paksh.
