Hindu calendar always uses two Pakashas , Krishan Pakasha and Shukla Pakasha of about 15 days each. If we had counting of days based on the moon, why we would require an arbitrary seven days cycle?
In my opinion we appropriate concept of week from other cultures and indianized it by naming days of week on our deities.
Is there any mention of vaara वार in Vedas, Purans, Upnishad, Ramayan or Mahabharata, if so please provide?
