Dear Editor,

 

I understand that the correct date for Phagwah was Thursday, March 5 but it was celebrated on Friday, March 6, even though some mandirs, including the Radha Krishna Mandir of Camp Street, held their service on Thursday, March 5.

The Dharmic Sabha calendar had it as Friday, March 6, which I am told was incorrect.

I understand that there is a difference of opinion in relation to the date for Hanuman Jyanti as the Dharmic calendar is at variance with other calendars.

This letter is therefore to enquire of the Pandits in Guyana which is the correct date, as we cannot have another conflicting celebration.

 

Yours faithfully,
Amar Persaud
