What Is Day (Vaar)?
As per the Hindu Panchang, a specific time or duration (kaal) is known as day or vaar. In simpler terms, it is a time-denoting term which helps us determine particular periods. As per astrology, one day, i.e., an Ahoratra (day is of 24 hours). Hence, the entire duration between one sunrise and the other is defined by a day. One month has about 4 weeks and each week has 7 days.
