The word "Ugadi" is made up of two words: "Yuga" (age) and "Adi" (family) (beginning). Ugadi, like most Hindu spring festivals, is a time for new beginnings, as the longer and brighter days invigorates and inspires hope for prosperous growth in one’s work, relationships, and spiritual practices.
History of Ugadi:
Ugadi is most commonly celebrated by the people of Andhra, Telangana and Karnataka. Ugadi is the New Year's Day for the states of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Karnataka in India.
According to Hindu mythology, Lord Brahma created the cosmos on this day. He went on to make days, weeks, months, and years after that. As a result, Ugadi is thought to be the first day of the universe's creation. Ugadi is the day Rama was crowned king of Ayodhya. The Yugadi refers to the current era, the Kali Yuga, which is thought to have begun after Lord Krishna's departure from the world.
How Ugadi is celebrated?
The day is celebrated with considerable pomp and pageantry, as it is an auspicious occasion. People from all walks of life celebrate the day by donning new outfits and indulging in delectable treats. People clean their homes and decorate them with Rangolis, a traditional manner of decorating floors by creating various patterns with coloured rice or flower petals.
