The Hindu Almanac is known as the ‘Panchanga’ which means ‘having five limbs’ They are Thithi, Vaar (week day), Nakshatra, Yoga and Karana. Generally, Thithi and Vaar are taken into account for fixing Muhurtha i.e. the auspicious time. for important events like marriages, upanayanams, Grihapravesham etc. Nakshatra is an important aspect of the horoscope and is used for predictions.

For instance, for every thithi (in which a person is born) some rasis become useless. They are called ‘Dagdha’ or burnt rasis. They are:
