Neither cold nor summer. Full Holiness. In such a time, character and religion came down on the earth in the form of Shri Ram himself in the witnessing of the sun's shining rays, the incarnation of Shri Ram is on Chaitra Shukla Navami.

Somewhere there is no dust, no soggy mud, purity like mind after bathing the ground and sky everywhere. I do not know which sage Mahamana must have understood this divine sentiment of Chaitra and the farmer must have considered the beginning of Kaal counting in this Chait most beautiful.

The Vedic name of Chaitra month is Madhu month. Madhu month means the month of spring sharing joy. This spring comes only in Phalgun but is fully expressed in Chaitra. All vegetation and creation emerge, in ripe sweet grains, in the fragrance of the mango's mind, in the green gourd of the hands of Gangaur-worshiped girls and suhagine nymphs, and in the echoing tone of Vasantdoot cuckoo.

The vision of the ripe crop around gives rise to self-confidence and enthusiasm. The movements in the fields, the harvesting of crops, the mournful sounds of the sickle and the screeching and joking sounds in the fields. Spread a little vision around the aura of India. What Chaitra came as if the fields were full of laughter and joy.

This is also the time for the new crop to come home. At this time, the heat starts increasing in nature, due to which new life comes in the tree-plant, animal and animals. People get so intoxicated that the joyous songs start humming in joy. Worship of Gaur and Ganesh is also done in Rajasthan for three days from this day. The war that occurs at sunrise on the day of Pratipada of Chait Shukla Paksha is called the king of Samvatsar in the year, the one who strikes on the day of the entry of Aries is the minister of Samvatsar, on this day the Sun is in Aries.
