PUNYA KALAYA or Nonagathaya (Inauspicious time)

Punya Kalaya begins on Sunday the 14th of April at 7.45 am and ends on Sunday the 14th of April at 8.33 pm.

Nonagathaya is an ‘interim period’ where, people spend their time without engaging in any serious activity. They consider this ‘Transition time’ is so inauspicious that no work should begin during that time. It is also called “punya kalaya” as people follow up religious customs such as going to temple during this time.

After the transition time is over it is the renewal; the beginning of a new cycle.


Preparing meals for the New Year should begin at 2.42 pm (14:42 IST) on Sunday, 14 April 2019, dressed in red and yellow looking forwards the East.
