        // Creating a calendar
        Calendar calndr = Calendar.getInstance();
  
        // Getting the Minimum value that

        int yr
            = calndr.getActualMinimum(Calendar.YEAR);
        System.out.println("The Minimum year: "
                           + yr);
  
        // Getting the Minimum value that

        int mon
            = calndr.getActualMinimum(Calendar.MONTH);
