What is time? This is not a question that can be easily answered even today. Yet, many ancient cultures came up with their own ways of measuring time by turning to the celestial bodies they could see in the sky. How the modern world has reconciled these various timekeeping ways makes for a rather interesting story – and affects our daily lives even today. 

Why do different communities in India celebrate New Year on a different day every year? Why do some festival dates change annually while some remain the same? What is the concept of ‘tithi’? How is the Hindu calendar different from the other calendars? 

Join Storytrails on a one-of-a-kind online session, where we demystify the science behind the Hindu calendar as we tell the story of time.
