    Dear Sumanh,

    Have no idea about online, hope some others can answer that. Have you tried the Sabzi Mandi in CH?

    I was just thinking that Indian shops would have hindu new year calendars which will have all the festivals listed. Anyways, I will definitely take a look at Staples.

    Thanks !

    I'm sorry I wasnt sure what you were looking - coming to Hindu calenders, different languages follow different calenders, right. They are usually available in Indian stores, and most of them give it for free, at least in CA.

    If I dont find one, it is available on the web for my language which I can download and print, otherwise come hindu new year, my dad always sends me a couple of them and he makes sure he marks everyone's birthdays so I don't forget the dates! :biggrin2:

    Here, in bay area, we get our hindu calender from Livermore temple. They mention all festivals and good days such as ekadasi and poornami in it. But it costs $5...that is the worest part. Moreover, my temple people caluculate the fesivals according to Indain timings...for example this year pongal is on 14 th Jan( it will always) but in my temple calender they mentioned it as 13th jan........that is weired..

    Anyway, If u have a hindu temple near u, i bet u will have,Nj has so many Indians......then search in the temple for calender. I am sure u will find one.

    Regards
    srilak.

    Hi,
    I bought a new year calendar in Bridgewater temple, NJ.
    They also have "KaalaNirnai" calendar which is famous for listing out auspicious timings for each and every date.
    Check out in temples in your city. you might get it.
