The Indian New Years--Baishagu of Boro community in Assam


Famous for its myriad colours and merriment, 'Baishagu' is generally celebrated by the Bodo Kacharis during mid April. It is the most cherished festival of the Bodo tribe. The Bodos also celebrate it as a springtime festival at the advent of the new year.

The first day begins with worship of the cow. The next day which synchronises with the first day of the month of 'Bohag' of the Assamese almanac, the actual merriment begins with the young people of each household reverentialy bowing down to their parents and elders. The supreme deity 'Bathou' or Lord Shiva is worshipped during the festival by offering chicken and rice beer. In the Baishagu dance there is no age or sex bar, all are welcome to join in. The traditional musical instruments that are used in this dance festival are 'Khum' (drum), 'Jotha' (Manjari), 'Khawbang' (Taal), 'Gogona' (Mouth-organ) and 'Siphung' (Flute) etc. It is also customary at the time of closure of the Baishagu festival to offer community prayers at a particular place called 'Garjasali'.

The Indian New Years--Rongali Bihu in Assam


Rongali Bihu (mid-April, also called Bohag Bihu), the most popular Bihu celebrates the onset of the Assamese New Year (around April 15) and the coming of Spring. This marks the first day of the Hindu solar calendar and is also observed in Bengal, Manipur, Nepal, Orissa, Punjab, Kerala and Tamil Nadu though called by different names.It's a time of merriment and feasting and continues, in general, for seven days. The farmers prepare the fields for cultivation of paddy and there is a feeling of joy around. The ladies make pitha, larus (traditional food made of rice and coconut) and Jolpan which gives the real essence of the season.

The first day of the bihu is called goru bihu or cow bihu, where the cows are washed and worshipped, which falls on the last day of the previous year, usually on April 14. This is followed by manuh (human) bihu on April 15, the New Year Day. This is the day of getting cleaned up, wearing new cloths and celebrating and getting ready for the new year with fresh vigor. The third day is Gosai (Gods) bihu; statues of Gods, worshiped in all households are cleaned and worshipped asking for a smooth new year.

DCD DOORDARSHAN: MILES ACHIEVED, MILES TO GO

In 2001, Doordarshan set up its first Development Communication Division (DCD) to discharge its social responsibility of highlighting developmental issues as well as to be the bridge between the needs of Government Departments, Public Sector Undertaking and Doordarshan’s services.

The concept was born out of a need to generate revenue by securing funds from government partners including ministries, departments and public sector undertakings by offering them off key solutions covering all aspects of media planning, software production, scheduling and impact evaluation. The unique revenue generation scheme envisaged flow of earnings by selling airtime at competitive rate.

In a short span on time, DCD has managed to revitalise in house production at Doordarshan, expanded our client base to include many government departments and has contributed substantially to the total revenue generation of DD, over the years.

Till date DCD has worked with the government to produce programmes on a wide range of subjects such as health, investor’s protection, tribal affairs, adult education, rural development, petroleum conservation, consumer affairs, environment and forest etc. Furthermore, it has seen brilliant collaborative ventures such as the HIV/AIDS campaign with NACO and BBC World Trust Service.

DCD, despite the challenging personal goals it had set, has seen a very favourable year for business generation and is proud to share its achievements at the closing of the Financial Year (2013-14). As opposed to Actual Receipts in the previous financial year (2013-13), which saw the grand total of 551.02 crores, this financial year has seen a quantum leap of 22 crores, bringing our total to 573.02 crores. In terms of new Business Generation, DCD has surpassed its expectation and brought in 43% more business than the previous financial year. We have seen the increase in business generation from 404 crores (2012-13) to 577 crores (2013-14).

This year DCD has brought forth fresh collaborations with Ministry of Corporate affair, PCRA, Department of Postal Life Insurance, Ministry of Panchayati Raj, Department of Information and Communication, the Planning Commission of India etc.

The Divisions most profitable collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the Swasth Bharat Campaign, came to an end on 31st March, 2014. Yet, under the guidance of Director General and Additional Director General, Doordarshan, DCD has succeeded in getting an extension for three more months beyond the closing of our financial year, which would generate revenue worth 50 crores, a good bonni (maiden earnings) for the current financial year.

Our young team is humbled and working hard each day to achieve even greater milestones!

The Indian New Years--Jaya Nama Samvatsara in Tamilnadu


The traditional Tamil New Year generally falls on 14 April of the Gregorian year. 14 April marks the first day of the traditional Tamil Calendar year. In the calendar of 60 years cycle, the New Year 2014 is named as “Jaya Nama Samvatsara”. The most important event of Tamil New Year's Day is the reading of `Panchangam.' Vedic pandits and temple priests read out the panchangam early in the morning, preferably in front of the sanctum sanctorum. Called `Panchanga padanam,' the ritual is believed to invoke the blessings of the Almighty.
Tamil people celebrate Tamil New Year on 14 April. This is the month of Chaitra, the first month of the Tamil solar calendar. In the temple city of Madurai, the Chittarai Thiruvizha (Festival) is celebrated in the Meenakshi Temple. A huge exhibition is held, called Chittarai Porutkaatchi. The day is marked with a feast in Tamil homes and entrances to the houses are decorated elaborately with Kolams(Color Rangoli) and fresh Mango leaves which symbolizes auspiciousness. In most parts of India, one can see neem trees blooming with their flowers and tiny fresh leaves, which purify the air and render a healthy touch and the first batch of mangoes hanging prominently.

The special dish for the New Year is the Vepambu Pachhadi (Neem ka chutney) without which the celebration is not complete. This `Pachchadi,' is a mixture of jaggery, chillies, salt, fresh neem flowers and fresh mango/tamarind, the rationale behind it indicating one's preparedness to experience sweetness and sourness in equal measure, and to be ready to accept both joyous and not-so-joyous events in life in a balanced approach. This dish is often served as an offering. 

On this New Year day Punya Kala Tharpanam i.e. tilanjali is offered to the forefathers.
