2014 Gujarati New Year

Most Lunar calendars start the year on Shukla Paksha Pratipada during Chaitra month and this day is celebrated as Gudi Padwa and Yugadi. However in Gujarat New Year starts on Shukla Paksha Pratipada in month of Kartik.

Most of the times, Gujarati New Year starts on Annakut Puja day which is also known as Gowardhan Puja.

Gujarati New Year is the time to close old account books and to open new account books. In Gujarat traditional account books are known as Chopda. New Chopda(s) are inaugurated during Diwali Puja in presence of Goddess Lakshmi to seek Her blessing and this ritual is known as Chopda Pujan. During Chopda Puja new account books are marked with auspicious symbols to make the financial year profitable.
