India is a diverse land which is
fundamentally based on multiracial, multiethnic, multilingual, multicultural and
pluralistic society. As it had multiplicity in many aspects of civilization, it
also has multiple Era followed in different region. There are approximately 30
different calendars or eras prevailing in India and Tripura Era is one of them.
Tripura is one of the few states whose royal dynasty had its own era. The
Tripura Era was the only era used during the Manikya dynasty rule of five
thousand years history. In all the official communications, royal communiqué,
religious and cultural sphere the Tripura Era was only used during the Raj

issued by different Tripuri kings, the copper plate inscription, inscription in
the walls temple established different Manikya kings and many more documents and
The Tripura Era's New Year is on the 1st of Vaisakh which
corresponds to 14 or 15 of April of Christian era, depending on whether that
year is a Leap year or not. The months are named after in pan Indian months,
time since its inception, 1419 years back by Tripur king Maharaj Hamtorfa alias
Himtifa alias Jujharufa in 512 Saka Era that is 590 AD.
Some years back few western culture minded by the influence of by western
religion wanted to shift Tripura Era New Year day from its 1St of
Vaisakh (April-14) to 1st of Pous (22nd December) and
re-write the history of Tripura Era in synchronize with Christian Era New Year.
In doing so, they a fake research had been done. Opinions from some senior
Tripuri people had been collected but it was not considered in re-determining
the Tripura Era's New Year. So it was basically an eye wash, to implement
imported western ideology of new year in Tripura Era in the chilling cold of
December. These committed western influenced youths artificially fixed Tripura
Era's New Year day on 22nd of December with out any justification,
any llinked to culture, custom, and heritages and religious belief and tried to
temper historical Tripura Era’s new year.
