Cheti Chand is celebrated as New Year’s Day by Sindhis, According to the Hindu calendar, Cheti Chand is celebrated on the second day of the Chaitra month known as Chet in Sindhi.
This year Cheti Chand will celebrate on March 24.
On the Cheti Chand day, many Sindhis take Baharana Sahib to a nearby river or lake.
Baharana Sahib consists of Jyot (Oil Lamp), Misiri (Crystal Sugar), Phota (Cardamom), Fal (Fruits), and Akha. Behind is Kalash (Water jar) and a Nariyal (Coconut) in it, covered with cloth, phool (flowers) and patta (leaves). There is also a Idol of Pujya Jhulelal Devta (Pujya=Worthy of worship, Devta=Deity).
The Sindhi New Year greeting is: “Cheti Chand jyon Lakh Lakh Wadayun Athav”.
The response is: “Twah khe bhi Cheti Chand jyon Lakh Lakh Wadayun Athav”.
