  1. Ekadasi is on 21st or 22nd?.It will be very nice if you mention the date also in the reminder.Always there are two different dates and it is confusing all the time

Even in the same country people belonging to different sects. observe Ekadasi based on their traditions (Smartha Ekadsai, Vaishnava Ekadasi, etc.). The objective of this reminder is to let devotees know that Ekadasi is coming so they can take that extra step of finding out when it is, based on the Sampradaya or Panchangam they follow. I’m sure people who want to observe Ekadasi will take that addl. bit of effort! Rama Rama
