The book is well compiled and gives a snap-shot of all the major Hindu Holidays / Ceremonies and Rituals however, some references in the book seem to be different from the traditionally known history. esp. The information on Parshuram Jayanti differs significantly from other notable references.
Readers are requested to kindly cross-check before reaching to any conclusion or using & quoting it as a reference somewhere.
