Hindu calendar
is a collective name for most of the luni-sidereal calendars and sidereal calendars traditionally used in Hinduism.

The Hindu calendars have undergone many changes in the process of regionalization. Some of the more prominent regional Hindu calendars include the Nepali calendar, Assamese calendar, Bengali calendar, Malayalam calendar, Tamil calendar, Vikrama Samvat used in Northern India, and Shalivahana calendar in the Deccan States of Karnataka, Telangana, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh.[1][2] The common feature of all regional Hindu calendars is that the names of the twelve months are the same (because the names are based in Sanskrit). The month which starts the year also varies from region to region.

The Buddhist calendar and the traditional lunisolar calendars of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Thailand are also based on an older version of the Hindu calendar.

Most of the Hindu calendars derived from Gupta era astronomy as developed by Āryabhaṭa and Varāhamihira in the 5th to 6th century. These in turn were based in the astronomical tradition of Vedāṅga Jyotiṣa, which in the preceding centuries had been standardized in a number of (non-extant) works known as Sūrya Siddhānta. Regional diversification took place in the medieval period. The astronomical foundations were further developed in the medieval period, notably by Bhāskara II (12th century).

Differences and regional variations abound in these computations, but the following is a general overview of the Hindu lunisolar calendar.

The Indian national calendar or "Saka calendar" was introduced in 1957 based on the traditional Hindu calendars.

Sir you isn't counting Islamic calendar.
It is used to date events in
many Muslim countries
(concurrently with the
Gregorian calendar), and used
by Muslims everywhere to
determine the proper days on
which to observe the annual
fasting, to attend Hajj, and to
celebrate other Islamic holidays
and festivals

Each month of the Islamic
calendar commences on the
birth of the new lunar cycle.
Traditionally this is based on
actual witnessing of the
crescent marking the end of
the previous lunar cycle and
hence the previous month
thereby beginning the new
month. Consequently, each
month can have 29 or 30 days
depending on the visibility of
the moon, astronomical
positioning of the earth and
weather conditions. However,
certain sects and groups, most
notably Dawoodi Bohra
Muslims and Shia Ismaili
Muslims use a tabular Islamic
calendar (see section below) in
which odd-numbered months
have thirty days (and also the
twelfth month in a leap year)
and even months have 29
