A variety of calendars are currently in circulation. The English Gregorian Calendar is in use internationally. But there are some problems with using a standard calendar in Tamil. Thus the Thiruvalluvar calendar is created as part of the effort to create a standard calendar in Tamil. It can be used by everyone, regardless of caste, religion, language or ethnicity. The Tamil International Thiruvalluvar Calendar (Thasati) is based on the Thiruvalluvar Year and 13 thirukkural chapter groups as month names. In this calendar, All months have 28 days except the first month. The First month has 29 days in normal and 30 days in a leap year.
