Concise Festival Calendar (CFC)

Man, we need some uninterrupted time to work, and get our projects done. Roko na mujhe, koi toko na mujhe. And then we find one red-letter day after another littered all over our calendar. 

Getting frustrated with too many holidays and festivals? Well we can make it concise and squeeze several of them in just one single month, say October-November. Here is how. (The number stands for the moon phase).

Feel free to squeeze in more of the religious ones here.  (Be careful not to put in the harvest festivals : that would interfere with the climate).
