Day 94 – New Year

Ugadi marks the new year for some of Indian states.

Historically the new year started around spring everywhere. It was only later when kings and rulers wanted to immortalize themselves we moved to new calendars that moved away from nature based celebrations. Think about it, is there anything new really happening in nature around 1st  January?
