India history and geogprahy

The solar year commences from the Sun’s entrance into aries—Ram. The beginnings of the solar months are determined by the entry of the Sun into the other zodiacal signs. The solar years are recorded in the era of the Kaliyuga. Its years are converted into those of the Christian era by subtracting 3101, from the number of complete years that have lapsed since the beginning of the Kaliyuga.
