MUMBAI, INDIA, March 26, 2001: For the first time a long march was organized to mark the beginning of Hindu New Year in Dombiwali, a fast growing northeast suburb of Mumbai area. About 40,000 men and women joined in. Normally, the first day of new year is marked with raising the flag at the top of home and prayers within home. Hindus have objected to January 1 New Year's parades in Mumbai, because January 1 is not the new year on any Hindu calendar.
