  • It corresponds to Mithuna (the zodiac sign of Gemini), the northern Indian solar month that occurs between June and July. 
  • One obvious indication of the ongoing significance of regional cultural traditions is the presence of many different calendars. 
  • The Tamils keep their culture alive by following their ancient calendar.

Hinduism And Hindu Theology - What Is Ani Or Anika In Sanskrit?



Ani is a shortened version of the Sanskrit word anika, which means "army," according to legend. 


  • The Bairagi Nagas, ascetic merchants and mercenary warriors who were devotees (bhakta) of the deity Vishnu, were a significant organizational division. 
  • The Digambara, Nirmohi, and Nirvani are the three Bairagi anis now in existence. 
  • These anis were formerly real combat units, but nowadays these differences are mostly used to establish bathing (snana) order in the Kumbha Mela bathing processions. 
  • The Digambaras are the most significant of the three anis, and they take priority over the others at the Kumbha Mela.
