Today (March 18) is the first day of Chaitra Navratri, which coincides with the beginning of Vikram Samvat 2075.
While Chaitra Navratri is mostly celebrated in north India, the day marks the festivals of Ugadi in Andhra Pradesh and Gudi Padwa in Maharashtra.
In Manipur, people following the Sanamahism religion celebrate Sajibu Cheiraoba, also called Meetei Cheiraoba and Sajibu Nongma Pānba, on this day.
In Manipuri, Sajibu is the first month of the year according to the Meitei lunar calendar. While Sajibu usually comes in April, the month has started early this year.
