Cheti Chand

Chetri Chandra (Sindhi: چيتي چند, Moon of Chaitra) is a festival that marks the beginning of the Lunar Hindu New Year for Sindhi Hindus.[3][8] The date of the festival is based on the lunar cycle of the lunisolar Hindu calendar, falling on the first day of the year, in the Sindhi month of Chet (Chaitra).[3] It typically falls in late March or early April in the Gregorian calendar on or about the same day as Gudi Padwa in Maharashtra and Ugadi in other parts of the Deccan region of India.

Significance of Cheti Chand

Cheti Chand is celebrated as the birthday of Ishtadeva Uderolal, who is also known as “Jhulelal.” The Sindhis believe that Uderolal was born in 1007 after they prayed to the Hindu God Varun Devon on the banks of River Indus to save them from being persecuted by Muslim Kings.

Kalaams are sung by singers to commemorate this occasion.
Kalaams are poems written by famous Sufi Poets, Muslim and Hindu.
Guru Nanak’s Shabads/ Bani is primarily recited to celebrate Sikh festivals and Birthdays of the 10 Gurus.

Cheti Chand is essentially a Sindhi Celebration to remember JhuleLal Saayeen and signal the onset of the Harvesting season.
