Definition

Not just a reference for periods of days, weeks and months as is traditionally understood in your western khopri. In this motherland of ours, it is specifically a calendar hanging on a nail on your wall with pictures of your Gods in scintillating colors and in outlandish behavior (like holding the severed head of a demon while riding a cow). The wall calendar sways gently to the tune of your ajanta fan. These calendars also double as advertisement for local businesses like 'Maheswari Jewelry and Sanitation' or 'Rajinder Aqua Services - Pani hi Pani!'. These ads are not subtle but very in your face.

Usage

Rajinder - Happy new year Sirji!! Here, you take this 17 calendars and 3 diaries as a gift.

Sirji - Very nice ya! So thoughtful fellow you are! I will put all the calendars up in my house in every room so that i will never ever forget what day it is. And Ganesh ji is looking sooo nice in the photo sitting on rat eating ladu.
