    East Indian Hindu
    (Bengali and Mithila which too starts its new year from Mesh Sankranti,
    in fact, Nepali and Assamese and Odia Hindus too do the same,
    the season names are in all other in Sanskrit Vasanta,
    Grishma, Varsha, Sharada, Hemanta, Shishira) calendar.

    The Bengali Calendar is similar to the Sanskrit calendar above,

    but differs in start and end times which moves
    certain dates/days around
    (i.e., Vasant Panchami occurs here in Vasant ritu
    but in the calendar above,
    it occurs in Shishir as that is the Magha Shukla Panchami).

    The East Indian Calendar has the following seasons or ritus:
