Great article, I was also planning for a long time on posting an article on Time calculation in ancient India in this forum but was lingering on due to some personal reasons ... Alright.. I admit, I'm really lazy Wink
 
Well you have beat me to it, congrats ClapClap
 
And you have also inspired me, so here is the article I was planning on posting, esp. for you meenaxi:
 
It is based on an ancient text known as 'Surya Siddhanta'
(Get ready for some Serious Maths) Big smile
 
Hindu Time calculation is based on Lunar Calender, which came into effect after the Kshya Shraap given to Chandrama by Daksha.
 
1 Lunar Month = 15 Bright days (Shukla Paksh) + 15 Dark days (Krishna Paksh) = 30 Days
 
12 Months = 360 Days = 1 Human Year
 
1 human year = 1 Divine day (1 day of Devas)
 
30 divine days = 1 Divine Month = 30 human years
 
12 Divine months = 1 Divine Year = 360 Divine days = 360 Human Years
 
Devas Lifespan = 100 Divine years = 36,000 human years
 
The calculation of yugas follows the series of 4 : 3 : 2 : 1
so Satya Yug (4) : Treta Yug (3) : Dwapar Yug (2) : Kali Yug (1)
 
Kaliyug  starts with a Dawn (Purva Sandhya = 1 Divine Lifespan) + 10 Divine Lifespans and ends with a Twilight (Uttar Sandhya = 1 Divine Lifespan)
 
so, Kaliyug = 100 + 1000 + 100 = 1200 Divine years
                 = 4,32,000 human years = 1 Charana
 
Going by the above series,
 
Dwapar Yug = 2 X Kaliyug = 200 + 2000 + 200 = 2400 Divine Years
                   = 8,64,000 human years = 2 Charanas
 
Treta Yug = 3 X Kaliyug = 300 + 3000 + 300 = 3600 Divine Years
                 = 12,96,000 human years = 3 Charanas
 
Satya Yug = 4 X Kaliyug = 400 + 4000 + 400 = 4800 Divine Years
                 = 17,28,000 human years = 4 Charanas
 
1 Mahayug = Satya Yug + Treta Yug + Dwapar Yug + Kaliyug
                 = 4800 + 3600 + 2400 + 1200 = 12000 Divine Years
                 = 43,20,000 human years = 10 Charanas
 
71 Mahayugas = 1 Manvantara (Each Manvantara is ruled by a Manu)
Each manvantara is followed by a Twilight (called Sandhi Kaal) of 4 Charanas
 
1 Kalpa consists of 14 Manvantaras (each with its own Manu) followed by a Sandhi Kaal and each kalpa starts with a Dawn (called Adi Sandhi) also equal to 4 Charanas
 
so, 1 Kalpa = 1 Adi Sandhi + 14 Manvantaras + 14 Sandhi Kaal
                 = 4 Charanas + (14 X 71 Mahayugas) + (14 X 4 Charanas)
                 = 994 Mahayugas + 60 Charanas
                 = 994 Mahayugas + 6 Mahayugas
                 = 1000 Mahayugas = 4,32,00,00,000 human years
 
2 Kalpa = 1 Brahma Day = 8,64,00,00,000 human years
 
30 Brahma Days = 1 Brahma Month
 
12 Brahma Months = 360 Brahma Days = 1 Brahma Year
= 31,10,40,00,00,000 human years (3.1104 trillion human years) Confused
 
Brahma Lifespan = 100 Brahma Years
 
1000 Brahma Lifespans = 24 Minutes in 1 Vishnu Day Shocked
 
360 Vishnu Days = 1 Vishnu Year
 
Vishnu Lifespan = 100 Vishnu Years
 
1000 Vishnu Lifespans = 24 Seconds of 1 Shiva Day Stern Smile
 
360 Shiva Days = 1 Shiva Year
 
Shiva has no lifespan, i.e. he is beyond life and death, he is eternal Smile
 
Current Date:
As of today, 50 years of Brahma have elapsed and we are in the First Day of the 51st year. Within this Day, 6 Manvantaras have elapsed and we are in the 7th Manvantara (ruled by Vaivasvatha Manu).
 
Within this Manavantara, 27 Mahayugas, and the Satya, Treta and Dwapar Yugas of the 28th Mahayuga have elapsed. We are in the Kaliyuga of the 28th Mahayuga.
 
The time elapsed since the current Brahma:
1 Brahma Year = 3.1104 Trillion Human Years
50 Brahma Years = 3.1104 * 50 = 155.52 Trillion Human Years
 
In the First Kalpa of 1st day of 51st Brahma Year:
1 Adi sandhi + 6 Manvantaras + 6 Sandhi Kaal
= 17,28,000 + (6 X 71 X 43,20,000) + 6 x 17,28,000 = 1.852416 Billion Human Years
 
In the 7th Manvantara:
27 Mahayugas = 27 x 43,20,000 = 116.64 Million Human Years
 
In 28th Mahayug:
Satya Yug + Treta Yug + Dwapar Yug = 17,28,000 + 12,96,000 + 8,64,000 = 3.888 Million Human Years
 
The current Kaliyug began at Midnight of 17 Feb - 18 Feb, 3102 BC
 
So, In current Kaliyug:
3102 + 2012 = 5114 human years
 
So the total time elapsed since current Brahma is
155.52 Trillion + 1.852416 Billion + 116.64 Million + 3.888 Million + 5114
= 15,55,21,97,29,49,114 Years have passed since the dawn of time
 
Phew!!!! that was a Looong calculation Silly
 
Thanks for reading
 
Cheerio

Rama ruled Ayodhya for 11,000 last years of the Treta Yuga.  The first 10,000, Sita too ruled w/ him, then there was her 12 year exile and her demise, and following that, Rama ruled for another 1000 years b4 retiring and handing it over to his sons and nephews.

Another dividing point b/w the Yugas is the time that Jaya/Vijaya's avatars were killed.  Satya yuga ended after the killing of Hiranyakashipu, and the Treta Yuga started.  Treta Yuga featured Vamana, Parashurama and Rama. and on the demon side, ran from Prahlad to Ravana.  Rama's mahaprayan marked the end of Treta Yuga, and after Arjun evacuated Dwarka, Kalyug started.

Anyway, number of years left in current Kalyug is 

432,000 - 5114 = 426,886

And Kalyug should end on

432,000 -3102 = 428,898CE

In other words, in the year 428,898CE, Kalki should have completed his work, and Bali's Manvantara should start, right?

No. We are in the 28th mahayuga of the 7th manvantara. Each manvantara consists of 71 mahayugas. So 71-28 = 43 more mahayugas are left. Also, each manvantara is followed by a sandhi kala that lasts for 4 charanas i.e. the duration of a Satya/Krita Yuga. Hence we still have the remainder of this Kali Yuga plus 43 more mahayugas and 4 more charanas after that until Bali becomes Indra.

I have a question - anybody know how long was Sati married to Shiva b4 that fateful yagna, and how long was Shiva in b/w his marriages to Sati and Parvati?  The serial seems to suggest it was as short as 7 days, but I thought it was much longer.

After shiva and sati married 
they promised to always take care of each other and then returned to his abode in the Himalayas on top of Mount Kailasha. There they lived happily for many years. After Sati death shiva took revenge on Daksh 

When Lord Shiva's anger had settled, he went back to the Himalayas to devote self to meditation. It lasted for sixty thousand years
Then a few thousand years had passed, Sati (that is her soul), also came back to this earth and could again pursue her aim to be united with her husband, the eternally beloved Lord Shiva. To start with she had to be born and to grow up As parvati.

They spent quite some time together as husband and wife. Not all the scriptures are consistent about the specific period but the Devi Puran mentions 10,000 years. Whatever it was, I can't think of any version that says "7 days only". Seems to me that's something the creatives made up for this show.
