Vedic Solar Month Calendar is Hindu solar month calendar starting on April 14–15 each year. It corresponds to Sidereal Sunentry into Aries (Mesha rashi) and is celebrated as the New Year in Assam, Bengal, Orissa, Manipur, Kerala, Punjab, Tamil Nadu and Tripura. This first month is Chitterai in Tamil, Medam in Malayalam and Baisakh in Bengali and Punjabi. Outside India, solar new year begins on the same day also in Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, Nepal and Thailand due to Hindu influence. Sun signs from Tamil Zodiac are Mesham, Rishabam, Midhunam, Kadakam, Simmam, Kanni, Thulam, Vruchikam, Dhanusu, Maharam, Kumbham, and Meenam which closely resemble the Malayalam months.
