CLARIFY PLS

Dear Friends,

Namaskaram

Could anyone tell me the difference between Janmashtami and Krishna
Jayanthi.  My parents told me they will be celebrating Krishna's Punya Janam
on 11th September, but most of India  celebrated on 12th August.

Why such differences in Hindu Calender itself??

It also baffles me why there such a rift between Vadagali and Thangalai,
even today.  For example in Thiruallikeni Parthasarathy Temple, it seems
quite serious, and most of time it is out of ego and its meaningless.

Namaskaram

Kalathur Raman Swathi
