What is Ugadi?
Ugadi or Yugadi is made using two different words, Yug (era) and Aadi (beginning) which means new beginnings. Ugadi or Yugadi (also known as Samvatsaradi) is the New Year’s Day for the people of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Karnataka in India. It is observed on the first day of the Hindu lunisolar calendar of Chaitra Masa (month).
Latest Ugadi Wishes
The day is observed by drawing colourful patterns on the floor called Muggulu, mango leaf decorations on doors called Torana, buying and giving gifts such as new clothes, giving charity to the poor, oil massage followed by a special bath, preparing and sharing a special food called pachadi, and visiting Hindu temples. The pachadi is a notable festive food that combines all flavors – sweet, sour, salty, bitter, astringent, and piquant.
In Telugu and Kannada Hindu traditions, it is a symbolic reminder that one must expect all flavors of experiences in the coming new year and make the most of them.
Ugadi has been an important and historic festival of the Hindus, with medieval texts and inscriptions recording major charitable donations to Hindu temples and community centers on this day. The same day is observed as a New Year by Hindus in many other parts of India, such as Gudi Padwa in Maharashtra.
