The day begins with ritual oil-bath followed by prayers. Oil bath and eating Neem leaves are must rituals suggested by scriptures.

Every 60 years a yuga gets completed and the names repeat in the next Yuga (next cycle). For example, the Telugu name for 1954 is “Jaya” which again got repeated after 60 years in 2014.
