Karte / Karthi (Telugu:కార్తె) or Njattuvela (Malayalam:ഞാറ്റുവേല ) is related to Sun and its transit through one of the 27 constellations (nakshatra). During its transit, Sun occupies each of the nakshatras for a period of approximately 13.5 days.

Rohini Karte 2019 was on May 25 Saturday

For an agrarian society, especially in India, climate plays an important role right from sowing to fertilizing to harvesting. To understand and insulate themselves and their crops from the natural climate change cycles, our ancestors relied upon the ancient wisdom of astrology and the movement of celestial bodies - The Sun, Moon and Stars.
