Q:my birthday according to english calendar was 5th May, can you tell me my star birthday according to tamil calendar when was that
Ah, a big smile overtook my face when I read this. I asked our resident guru, Shubha, about this (who now works down the hall on The Splendid Table). It just so happens that your birthday is the same as her father’s. Shubha’s reply: “Check out my blog post where there’s a great calculator.” Discovery is the best sort of magic, non?
