Chaitra purnima

This one’s considered as the 1st full moon of the hindu calendar. Falls somewhere in the beginning of April. Also celebrated as Hanuman’s birthday/jayanti .
Since it is the 1st poornima of the year, it is said that Chitragupta, Yama’s* secretary, opens the new log book of good deeds v/s sins of each and every individual. yes, u heard it right. yours too. 🙂
So on this day, one is expected to respect elders, keep room clean, help mom in the kitchen :P, serve the poor etc. etc. OVERTIME, so as to put Amul butter on Chitragupta. Lying today is taboo raised to infinity, cos u don’t want to start the year with a red mark in your calender, do you?
so here’s a perfect day to reinstate that new year resolution u assiduously made on 31st dec 12 midnight and failed to keep. lol.

YAMA* – lord of death/ dementor in Potter lang.

    Wow… I didn’t know that we had to do all such things on this day. From now, I think it would be consious effort to not have a red mark!
