Puthandu, or better known as Tamil New Year, is the celebration of the first day of the Tamil new year traditionally in mid-April by people of Tamil origin in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry in India, and by the Tamil population in Malaysia, Singapore and Sri Lanka. People in the world greet each other on this day by saying Iniya Tamizh Puthaandu Nalvazhthukkal. This is in keeping with the Hindu solar calendar.
