He opined that the calendar is particularly useful for the students and working people.

The calendar also mentions the special holidays and festivals.

"Everything has been mentioned in this calendar like dates and festival, days. It is very useful to us because earlier we had to depend on other people," said Pasha, designer of the calendar.
