In India we celebrate every happiness and every gift which is given by Mother Nature. Here we follow many cultures and religions without any difficulties. We celebrate many religious festivals as well as many harvest festivals too. We also celebrate different New Year which is based on our different cultures.
Ugadi is the New Year Day for the people of the Telgu and Kannada communities in India.Ugadi is celebrated in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. It also celebrated in other states of India but with different names.
The name Ugadi or Yugadi is derived from the Sanskrit word yuga (age) and aadi (starting) which means The beginning of a new age. The story behind this festival is that the Lord Brahma created the Universe on this time and he started the creation on the day of Ugadi.
Ugadi marks a change in the lunar orbit as well as the beginning of the new Hindu lunar calendar. It also heralds the advent of spring. Mother Nature awakes from her deep slumber to give birth to new plants and cover earth in green color.
Ugadi begins on the first new moon after the Spring Equinox. It is celebrated the next morning as an Indian day starts from sunrise. According to English calendar, this date usually falls in late March or early April. Ugadi in 2017 will be observed on Tuesday, 28th March.
Like other years, this year too, Ugadi will be celebrated with great pomp and show. There are a set of customs and traditions that are observed on this special day.
