Vishuva Sankranti – Pana Sankranti – Oriya New Year 2013 : SMS, Text Messages and Greeting Cards

Vishuva Sankranti or Maha Vishuva Sankranti, also known as Mesha Sankranti and Pana Sankranti, is celebrated as the Oriya New Year every year. The day marks the beginning of the New Year in the traditional Hindu Solar Calendar. On this day the sun enters the sidereal Aries or Mesha Rashi. It generally falls on 14/15 April. The spring season is at its zenith during this period, and the summer is approaching. The date is calculated as per Sidereal astrology.

This festival brings great fun to oriya people. A special type of fruit juice with curd called pana is made at every household. It is first given to basil (Tulsi) plant for worship and then distributed to neighbour. Many pana stalls are made at road side. Basically Oriya people worship Lord Hanuman to save from fire and air.
