Tulu Months in the Year – Thingolu
Tulu Calendar (also known as Varsa, Vorsa or Vodu, Tulu: ವೊರ್ಸೊ) is a traditional Indian solar calendar, generally used in the regions of Northern Parts of Kasaragod District of Kerala, and Dakshina Kannada, Udupi Districts of Karnataka, India.
Tulu Calendar is one of the oldest Indian solar calendars and traditional ones still being used. In our day to day lives, most us follow the Western or Gregorian calendar that consist of twelve months from January to December. But Tuluvas have a specific calendar with our own twelve months for agriculture activities, religious activities and festivals.
A year is called as ‘varsa’ or ‘orsa’ in Tulu and Calendar is Panchanga. The first day of this calendar falls on Bisu (mid April) in ‘Paggu’ month and this day is celebrated as Bisu parba in Tulunadu. Each month has 30 to 31 days and the first day of a Month is called as Thingade or Singade. The last day known as Sankramana or Sankranthi.
The indigenous or Tulu speaking people of Tulu Nadu, Tuluvas who migrated from this region to other places, are the common followers of this calendar system. The first day of this calendar falls on Bisu (middle of the Gregorian month of April).
