Gujarati New Year 2023 Date

Gujarati New Year will be observed on Wednesday, November 14, 2023, this year. It takes place on the Shukla Paksha of the Hindu month of Kartik, according to the Hindu calendar. The new year in Gujarat occurs on the first day of Kartik (Ekam), according to the Indian calendar based on the lunar cycle. Kartik is the first month of the year. Thus, this day also serves as the start of the new fiscal year. The New Year’s celebrations start in several regions of India in the early spring.

Gujarati New Year’s Significance

Gujarati New Year festivities include visiting temples, dressing in new attire, and spending time with friends and family. People use phrases like Sal Mubarak or Nutan Varsha Abhinandan to greet one another and wish each other a happy new year.

The lavish, exquisitely decorated house and all the delights and festivities in and around it are additional components of the celebrations. The women of the home prepare delectable treats that are shared with all the neighbours

Gujarat considers the first of the year to be lucky. People close their old ledger books and open fresh ledger books on this day. These ledger books, known as Chopra, are revered, blessed with special symbols, and prayed over for a prosperous fiscal year.

The day before this day, dealers open new ledgers and close their old ones to commemorate it. They draw the sacred Swastika sign and inscribe blessings on it. People celebrate Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge, and Lakshmi, the goddess of riches, on this day.

It is a day to let go of the past, put any misunderstandings to rest, and formally welcome fresh starts.

The Bestu Varas Story

Lord Shri Krishna is linked to the Bestu Varas. Legend has it that Lord Krishna was nurtured in Braj, where he questioned the sacrifices given to Lord Indra. While urging people to follow what was moral and good by religious standards, Lord Krishna has always rejected appeasement. The locals ceased making offerings to Lord Indra as a result. However, Lord Indra pelted the Braj region with drenching rain and thunder to exact revenge for this insult. Animals, as well as people and property, suffered losses as a result of this.

In order to put an end to this misery, Lord Krishna raised the Govardhan hill on his little finger and gave both people and animals a place to live. After doing this for seven days, Devraj Indra gave up and bowed to Lord Krishna on the eighth day. As a result, it became customary to worship Govardhan Parvat on this day.


• A fresh Chopda is unveiled at the Diwali Puja to be blessed by Goddess Lakshmi. This ceremony is known as Chopda Pujan. During this process, the auspicious letters “Shubh” and “Labh,” which stand for “auspicious” and “benefit,” respectively, are written on account books. At the beginning of the book, a Swastika is drawn in order to make the upcoming fiscal year lucrative.

• In Gujarat, it is a significant day for businesses. The account books are adored in the presence of Goddesses Lakshmi and Saraswati.

• In this festive season, Gujrati people clean and decorate their homes.

• To get the new year off to a good start, people get up early and visit temples. Then they let off some fireworks, have some treats and snacks, and prepare to meet up with their loved ones.
