Sangrand 2021 Dates

Sangrand (Sankranti in Hindi) is the first day of a month according to desi calendar or Indian traditional calendar. Here it may be noted that there are two types of traditional calendars - Solar (based upon Sun) and Lunar (based upon Moon). Sangrand (Sankranti) is the beginning of a new month according to the Solar calendar. The day next to Masya or Puranmashi is considered as the first day of a month according to the Lunar calendar and most of the religious festivals in India like Diwali, Holi, Gurpurab etc. are based upon the Lunar calendar.
Chet is the first month of the year according to Bikrami Samvat calendar and hence the sangrand of Chet month is considered as the new year day. So according to desi calendar of 2021, the new year will start on Sunday, 14th March 2021. Many readers will say that Vaisakh is the first month of the year and festival of Vaisakhi is the new year day. But actually this festival is related to the harvesting season of wheat crop. The list of Sangrand dates in 2021 is given on this page.
On this page, we have also given list of other important days according to desi calendar and this information is divided into following sections:

The day is very special in Sikh religion as Guru Gobind Singh ji established the 'Khalsa' panth on this day. The festival is celebrated in Anandpur Sahib with great enthusiasm.
Many people think that Vaisakh is the first month of the year and festival of Vaisakhi is the new year day. But actually Chet is the first month of the year and not Vaisakh.
