In western civilization Religion/Faith/Festivals are inflitrated by Corporate Marketing/Consumerization propaganda, removing Spiritual sacredness!
During 1920-30s Economic Crisis in west, fat model with red dress selling Cold drink was released on Christmas winter to woo customers, it got popular so trend is continued next year which ultimately became Santa Claus figure giving gifts to kids.
So, today’s fat-red Santa Claus was started as a marketing model to sell chilled soft drinks in winter cold where sales are naturally down!! Then attached to some ancient European Saint story giving gift to kids!(?)
Same way western greeting card industry discovered and exploited Friendship Day, Mothers Day, Valentine’s day, Anniversary, etc to fool people and sale their cards!
Only stupid ignorant Indians fall in their trap!

1st January is a start of Eurocentric Abrahmic Gregorian New Calender Year…which is generally used in International Trade to avoid confusion. However, many countries still follow their own ancient Calendar in daily life, like in India (for Festivals, Maths, Astronomy, Marriages, Rituals, etc).
On the occasion of 1st Jan 2016, a Gregorian new year, lets learn important life lesson about Cultural, Economical, Social and Mental damage to country & its citizens due to choosing wrong calendar!
Understand journey of 2 calendars used in India – Gregorian for Global Trade/Business/Offices and Indian Traditional calendar which is much before Gregorian calendar or Abrahmics formation in west….used in all Indian Astronomy, Navigations, Agriculture, Religious festivals, Astrology (panchang),etc.
Major Difference between EAST Vs WEST New Year Celebration:
WEST-New YearDay starts at mid-night at 12:00 AM in DARK
INDIA –New YearDay starts with Sun Rise at 6:30 AM in SUNLIGHT & POSITIVITY…
But, since when European Invasion (1857 – 1947), India was forced to use Gregorian calendar as colonial tactics to brainwash people & deprive them from their own great ancient knowledge & wisdom.
Irony, it is neither suitable for Indian Whether and Climate…nor for Agricultural & economy…World famous Indian Mathematician Genius Prof C K Raju, one of fathers of Indian Supercomputer – PARAM in 1984 onwards and author of over 12 best selling books and many articles on Mathematics, Physics and Plilosophy of Science, is exposing here damages done to Indian economy, culture, astronomy and agriculture by using Gregorian calendar which is Abrahmic calculations for European whether/year!
Worth watching…show it to your kids & others interested in Maths, True World History, Geopolitics, East Vs West studies, Indian Civilization , Indology, Hinduism etc

BTW – In Universe , nothing has changed…all planets are still revolving and stable….Only we humans unnecessary give too much attention on Day-Night! 🙂
Its just another day and yet another year in life!
