1. PANCHANG Adarsh Mobile Applications provides panchangs (Hindu calendars) for mobile phones. Adarsh Panchang is based on Drik Ganita and use precise moment for planetary events. One should not match panchangs based on Drik Ganita with those based on Surya-Siddhanta. Panchangs based on Drik Ganita, e.g. Adarsh Panchang, are more accurate and provide precise timings for eclipse, sunrise, sunset and other planetary events. 2. 1000 YEARS SUPPORT Adarsh Panchang generates panchangs from period 1583 C.E to 2582 C.E. (for 1000 years) for hundreds of cities across the globe. Adarsh Panchang is result of years' research on Hindu calendar. It considers skipped months, leap months, skipped days, leap days and follows them as dictated by ancient Hindu scriptures. We use most out of advance computing and high precision mathematics available on handheld devices to generate precise panchangs. Even in this computer era finding panchang which is made for a particular city is difficult. Not only Hindu dates but also Hindu festivals are not always same across two locations. Hence all festivals should be calculated separately for each location. Adarsh Panchang lists most Hindu festivals for 1000 years. All Hindu festivals are calculated based on user's current location. Hence panchang recalculates all festivals if user location is changed. Adarsh Panchang also generates solar and lunar eclipse data for 1000 years. 3. TRIAL PERIOD One can download Adarsh Panchang and use it for 7 days. The 7 days trial period doesn't list festivals. After 7 days when trial period is over panchang cannot be used without getting it activated. Once trial period is over panchang will prompt for online activation. If user chooses "yes" then device will try to activate panchang online. Please note that one needs Internet connection to activate panchang. We don't provide any key for panchang activation. Whole registration process and validation is done online without any key. Once panchang is activated one can use it without any further activation or Internet connection (unless one wants to access online help). 4. DEVICE ACTIVATION Please visit www.adarshapps.com and make payment of Rs.xxx to register the device for panchang activation. It is also possible to register device during trial period. Once we receive the payment we will activate device within few hours. In most cases it doesn't take more than 24 hours to activate device. Activation would be valid forever for registered device. If due to some reasons user has to reinstall Adarsh Panchang then user can activate it without paying for activation charges. We would recognize registered device and activate it again.

5. FIRST USAGE It is important to set (or check) panchang location and school type on first usage. Please refer our suggestion below to find school type, Purnimant or Amavasyant, one should select. 5.1 Location On first usage Adarsh Panchang would prompt user to select location. One should select the nearest city. If user doesn't select any city then location would be set to historical city Ujjain, India. One can change the location later at any time. To change panchang location, please follow Options->Change Location Panchang provides search option to assist user in city selection. Selected city can be seen in day panchang view. One can switch to day panchang view by tapping any grid cell in month view. 5.2 Purnimant v/s Amavasyant School Adarsh Panchang provides option to choose either Purnimant or Amavasyant panchang. In both type of panchangs only month names differ and remaining panchang factors including festivals remain unchanged. By default Adarsh Panchang is set to Purnimant which can be changed to Amavasyant. To change school type or to check currently selected school please follow Options->Settings->Panchang Type -> Amavasyant 5.2.1 Amavasyant Panchang Amavasyant panchangs are followed in south India and consider new moon to mark the beginning of the month. Andhra Pradesh, Goa, Gujarat, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra, Orissa, Tamil Nadu, and other eastern states, generally non-Hindi speaking, follow Amavasyant panchang. 5.2.2 Purnimant Panchang Purnimant panchangs are followed in north India and consider full moon to mark the beginning of the month. Mostly Hindi speaking states of north India such as Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Jharkhand, MP, Punjab, Rajasthan, UP, etc. follow Purnimant panchang. 5.3 Language Adarsh Panchang supports both English and Devanagari (Devanagari fonts are used by Hindi, Marathi and Sanskrit languages). By default panchang language is set to English and it can be changed to Devanagari. Reminder (including birthday and anniversary reminders) support is available only in English irrespective of selected language. To change panchang's language, please follow Options->Settings->Language->Hindi

All above settings are persistent and remembered by Adarsh Panchang. Hence one doesn't have to set or change the settings on next usage. 6. MONTH VIEW 6.1 Month View - Portrait Mode When one launches the panchang it shows current Gregorian month with corresponding Hindu dates. Hindu dates are displayed at bottom right corner of grid cells. Skipped Hindu date is shown by putting it together with current date. In grid cell if one sees "3,4" then it means that current Hindu date is 3rd (tritiya) and 4th (chaturthi) date got skipped. Full moon days (purnima) and no moon days (amavasya) are shown by marking grid cells by white and black moon icons and by changing background color of grid cell to orange and gray respectively. On rare occasion when full moon day or no moon day is skipped we mark 14th (chaturdashi) date, which precedes full or no moon date, as full moon day or no moon day respectively. Leap days can easily be seen in month view. Two consecutive Hindu dates' subscripts in grid cells would be same on leap day. The first day would be normal (shuddha) day and latter one would be leap (adhik) day. 6.1.1 Navi Pane Navi pane is available in portrait mode. It moves focus to next or previous year. If panchang is focused on 12/Oct/2010 then by tapping at right corner on navi pane user can move to 12/Oct/2011.

"Goto Date" popup can be launched by tapping at middle of navi pane. User can enter any date between 1/Jan/1583 to 31/Dec/2582 to jump directly on desired day. 6.1.3 Toolbar Toolbar is available in portrait mode.

DAY PANCHANG VIEW - PORTRAIT

Apart from the above details preview pane and Hindu date strip are available in day panchang view. 7.1 Timings mentioned in Day Panchang View The English day is measured from midnight to midnight. Hence clock is reset at midnight along with the date and the day. The Hindu day is measured from sunrise to sunrise. Unlike English dates, Tithi, Nakshatra, Yoga, Karana (panchang elements) do not start or end at midnight. The panchang elements can end at anytime during the day. Hence day panchang view shows end times of panchang elements. If Tithi, Nakshatra, Yoga and Karana ends before midnight then their times will be normal, but in 24 hour format. If panchang elements end after midnight but before next sunrise, then their time will be more than 24. Which means if panchang elements end at 1:27:10 a.m. then panchang would show it as 25:27:10+ and 2:31:00 a.m. would be shown as 26:31:00+. Symbol `+' emphasizes that end time is between English day midnight and next day sunrise. Further, if end time is after next day sunrise then panchang shows it as "Full Night". All Tithi, Nakshatra, Yoga, and Karana including Sun and Moon sign (Suryarashi and Chandrarashi) show end times. All timings in Panchang view are local to current location. The Daylight Saving Time (DST) has been adjusted for all locations supported by Adarsh Panchang. 7.2 Day Panchang View - Portrait Mode 7.2.1 Navi pane Navi pane is available in portrait mode.

· Hindu Date of Birth ­ This field shows Hindu date of birth on chosen location. It is changed if user changes birth location or birth time before sunrise or after sunrise field. (Please note that this field cannot be set!) Description ­ User can give brief description for the birthday or anniversary. E.g. "Sachin Birthday!" Please note that current description limit is 50 characters. Next Birthday ­ Next Birthday shows next Gregorian birthday date. Next birthday date is calculated based on main Panchang location. We don't use birth location to get next birthday. It is correct also. One should celebrate birthday according to current location. If your loved one is with you in London, UK then you should observer the birthday when similar Hindu birth date prevails in London, UK and not when similar Hindu date prevails at birth location e.g. in Kolkata, India. (Please note that this field cannot be set!) Birthday Reminder Type o Hindu Calendar ­ by default it is set. o Gregorian Calendar ­ If user selects it then birthday reminders are set according to Gregorian calendar. If user entered Gregorian date of birth as 1/Jan/1991 then next birthday would be on 1/Jan/2011 if current year is 2010. Alarm "On" Alarm Date ­ By default we set alarm date one day before birthday or anniversary. It can reset to any date till midnight of next birthday date. Alarm Time ­ By default alarm time is set to sunset time, one day before birthday. However it can be reset to any time. WARNING ­ please note that next birthdays or anniversaries dates MIGHT become invalid if user changes main panchang location. E.g. if user has set birthday while main panchang location was London, UK and changes it to Kolkata, India then next birthday would be still for London, UK. However once lined up birthday expires then next one would be calculated for Kolkata, India. User needs to set birthday or anniversary reminders only once. Adarsh Panchang always lists next birthday or anniversary and when it expires it sets the birthday for next year. 13. MENU OPTIONS Options menu is available in portrait mode.

14. MISCELLANEOUS 14.1 Mid Night Cross Over Day cross over ­ at mid night when day changes Adarsh Panchang reset focus to current day. If current focused day is 31/Dec/2010 then at midnight 00:00 calendar focus will move to 01/Jan/2011, if panchang is kept open or is running in the background. Midnight day cross over happens for all panchang views. Only exception is reminder list which needs to be closed and reopened to get it updated for expired reminders. 14.2 Know your Sunsign Users can check their sunsign in day panchang view. User can switch to day panchang view by tapping on any day cell in month grid. · · · In day panchang view tap on navi pane (Gregorian date) at top to get "Goto Date" prompt Enter your date of birth (on Gregorian Calendar) and press "Ok" Check the "Sun" row (third row from bottom) in currently visible day panchang view (Please make sure that you consider your birth time while looking your sunsign. If your birth time is 07:30:22 a.m. and sunsign shows "Makara 06:30:12" then your sunsign would be shown on next day panchang view as Makara sign got over at 06:30:12).

When panchang shows "Makara 06:30:12" it means that Makara sign is getting over at "06:30:12". Hence one has to consider next day sunsign as birth sunsign. 14.3 Know your Moonsign Users can check their moonsign in day panchang view. User can switch to day panchang view by tapping on any day cell in month grid. · · · In day panchang view tap on navi pane (Gregorian date) at top to get "Goto Date" prompt Enter your date of birth (on Gregorian Calendar) and press "Ok" Check the "Moon" row (second last from bottom) in currently visible day panchang view (Please make sure that you consider your birth time while looking your moonsign. If your birth time is 07:30:22 a.m. and moonsign shows "Makara 06:30:12" then your moonsign would be shown on next day panchang view as Makara sign got over at 06:30:12).

When panchang shows "Makara 06:30:12" it means that Makara sign is getting over at "06:30:12". Hence one has to consider next day moonsign as birth moonsign. 15. HINDU SUNRISE AND SUNSET Hindu sunrise and sunset are not observational and should not be matched with those published in various news papers. All daily newspapers give sunrise timings when the edge of the disk is visible above eastern horizon. For astrological calculation this sunrise cannot be used. For religious and astrology purposes the time when the middle of the sun's disk rises above eastern is used. All festival determinations are done based on 'madhyabimb darshan' when middle of the disk becomes visible at eastern horizon. However Hindu sunrise and sunset can be matched with published sunrise and sunset within 10 minutes range for most locations.

16. SURYA SIDDHANTIC V/S DRIK GANITA Adarsh Panchang is based on Drik Ganita and use precise moment for planetary events. One should not match panchangs based on Drik Ganita with those based on Surya-Siddhanta. Panchangs based on Drik Ganita, e.g. Adarsh Panchang, are more precise and provide precise timings for eclipse, sunrise, sunset and other planetary events. 17. ECLIPSES Adarsh Panchang generates eclipse data for 1000 years from 1583 C.E to 2582 C.E. Our Eclipse data (for both solar and lunar eclipses) can be matched with online data provided by NASA. 17.1 Solar Solar eclipse could be total, annual, hybrid or partial. Adarsh Panchang doesn't differentiate among various types of solar eclipses and list all type of eclipses as solar eclipse. Solar eclipse might not be visible at your location but it would be listed by Adarsh Panchang. 17.2 Lunar Lunar eclipses could be of one of three types 1. Penumbral Lunar Eclipse ­ It occurs when the Moon passes through Earth's penumbral shadow. 2. Partial Lunar Eclipse ­ It occurs when a portion of the Moon passes through Earth's umbral shadow 3. Total Lunar Eclipse ­ It occurs when the entire Moon passes through Earth's umbral shadow Penumbral lunar eclipses are subtle and hard to observe. Because of that penumbral eclipses are useful only for academic purpose. Adarsh Panchang doesn't list penumbral lunar eclipse and ignore them. Adarsh Panchang doesn't differentiate between partial and total lunar eclipses and list both of them as lunar eclipse. Lunar eclipse might not be visible at your location but it would be listed by Adarsh Panchang. 18. FESTIVALS For up-to-date list of listed festivals please visit www.adarshapps.com as we would be adding more festivals and events to Adarsh Panchang. 18.1 List of Events 18.1.1 Purnima(s) · · · · · · · · · · · Paush Purnima Magha Purnima Basanta Purnima Buddha Purnima Wat Purnima Vrat Guru Purnima Narali Purnima BhadraPad Purnima Sharad Purnima Kartik Purnima Margashirsha Purnima

18.1.6.1 Dujee Ekadashi When Ekadashi fast can be observed on any one of two days Adarsh Panchang shows second day as `Dujee Ekadashi'. 18.1.6.2 Vaishnav Ekadashis Currently Adarsh Panchang lists Ekadashis based on Smarth Sect. Most of the festivals follow rules prescribed by Smarth Sect. However, whenever Janmashtami and Ram Navami are on different days Adarsh Panchang lists both days separately (we mark Smarth event by '*' to emphasize that Vaishnav Sect festival date is different from Smarth Sect festival date. 18.2 List of Festivals Adarsh Panchang lists following Hindu festivals for each year. · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · Ahoi Ashtami Akshaya Tritiya Anant Chaturdashi Basant Panchami Bhaiya Duj (Yama Dwitiya) Chhath Puja Dhan Teras Durga Ashtami Dussehra Ganesh Chaturthi Ganesh Visarjan Ganga Dussehra Gauri Puja (Gangaur) Gowardhan Puja (Bali Pratipada) Gudi Padwa (Hindu New Year) Hanuman Jayanti Hariyali Teej Holi (Holika Dahan) Jagannath Rathyatra Karwa Chauth Krishna Janmashtami Lakshami Puja (Diwali) · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · Maha Navami Maha ShivRatri Makar Sankranti Nag Panchami Narak Chaturdashi Narasimha Jayanti Orissa New Year ParashuRam Jayanti Pongal Radha Ashtami Raksha Bandhan Ram Naumi Rangwali Holi (Dulhandi) Roop Chaudas Sakat Chauth Saraswati Avahan Saraswati Puja Tamil New Year Varalakshmi Vrat Wat Savitri Vrat Yugadi

Note - By default panchang location is set to historical city Ujjain, India which can be changed to any other city supported by panchang. 20. CHOOSE NEAREST CITY TO SET YOUR LOCATION If one's city is not listed in panchang then one should choose the city which is nearest to one's location. In India most festivals are celebrated on same day because small change in latitude and longitude doesn't change festival dates. Please write to us on www.adarshapps.com/contactus/ to include your location and in next version we'll try to include suggested locations. 21. SUPPORTED DEVICE AND PLATFORM 21.1 S60 5th Edition (Symbian^1) We support most of the Symbian devices based on S60 5th Edition (Symbian^1). For up-to-date list of supported devices and platforms please visit www.adarshapps.com as we would be extending Adarsh Panchang support to more devices and platforms. · · Nokia 5228 Nokia 5230

22. LOCATION CHANGE AND DEVICE TIME CHANGE - WARNINGS! 1. Panchang alarms are not reset if UTC time is changed on device. However if user changes clock time then Adarsh Panchang would reset alarms' time accordingly. In other words panchang alarms are not affected if user changes current time zone on device but get shifted or expire accordingly if user changes system clock time. 2. Please note that next birthday or anniversary dates MIGHT become invalid if user changes main panchang location. If user has set birthday while Panchang location was London, UK and later changes it to Kolkata, India then next birthday would be still for London, UK. However once lined up birthday expires then next one would be calculated for Kolkata, India. 3. Daylight Saving rules are considered based on rules which are applicable for 2010-11. Daylight saving rules might change in coming future. Also current daylight saving rules might not be valid for past years. However such variation or adjustment in DST (Daylight Saving Timings) doesn't affect festivals and birthday dates. Hindu calendar doesn't consider DST for calculations and in Adarsh Panchang DST gets adjusted just before timings are shown to user. 23. SUPPORT & CONTACT Please write to us on www.adarshapps.com/contactus or email us at [email protected] or [email protected] for any suggestions, feedbacks or concerns. Please visit www.adarshapps.com to check latest version of Adarsh Panchang.
