"Perhaps controversial to start with but futuristic in approach"
|In this subject capsule, we question the scientific nature of the Gregorian calendar that we are following now.
Similar to this, there are a variety of calendars being used in different parts of the world.
Almost all these calendars have their origins to a particular earthly event or the birth of a Divine or Noble person.
With the current civilization and the world going scientific, can we depend on a medieval calendar in the future?
We are on the verge of entering the space age.
Can any of these present calendars be used in the coming space age as a space age calendar?
In this subject capsule, we offer the Indian Sankalpacalendar, as a credible alternative for this world as it enters the scientific age and in space age usage.
This brings us back to the reality that while calendar is a man made time marker a calendar at the cosmic level should not be dependent on one person's appearance on this earth. It should be a cosmic calendar in consonance with cosmology.
