Hindu Festivals 2009

Posted on Updated on

Here is a list of Hindu festivals in 2009. I hope this will be useful especially of those of you living outside India ( and there are many as I can gather from the comments ) who might find it hard to track dates on the Hindu calendar. The list is by no means complete so is subject to being updated. Again, all these dates are according to the Udayavani diary of the year 2009. Hope you all have a great year 2009 !
