If you're really interested in this stuff, there is a book called Calendrical Equations with about three hundred pages of calendar-related calculations, including Hindu calendars (and Diwali).

Unfortunately the book also comes with this idiotic copyright statement:

...for strictly personal use you may copy and use the code... Any other uses, including without limitation, allowing the code or its output to be accessed used, or available to others, is not permitted.

Had I known of that copyright statement I never would have bought the piece of crap.
