Solar Calendar New Year Pujas
Solar Calendar New Year is considered as the harvest festival. It marks the end of Rabi crop for the season. This is the time when the summer fruits are reaped. However, there is another reason for which this festival is celebrated. It is believed that on this day the universe was created. It is a common belief in Hinduism; that this is the day when Brahma created the world. Thus, the day is dedicated to all the Gods. Legend has it that Lord Vishnu took the form of a fish on this day. This was an incarnation to save the entire earth from destruction or pralaya.
