Happy Tamil New Year ( Iniya Puthandu Vazhathukkal )

The Tamil calendar is a derivative of the old Hindu solar calendar and is based on the sidereal year (i.e. the time taken for one revolution of the Earth around the sun, or the mean time taken by the sun to return to the same position relative to the background of the fixed stars in the sky). In contrast, most other languages of India (Telugu, Hindi) use lunar calendars. The Tamil Year names follow a 60-year cycle. (The number 60 represents five
Jovian periods i.e. it takes Jupiter about 12 years to orbit the sun).
