Ugadi, also known as Telugu New Year is a Hindu festival that is extremely popular in South India especially in AP, Telangana, and Karnataka. Ugadi is celebrated a day after the first new moon on the spring equinox.
The word Ugadi has its roots in two words – Yug and Aadi, the former meaning era and latter meaning a new beginning. Thus, the Ugadi marks a new beginning, a new arrival of an era. The festival is celebrated in high spirits. Celebrations include decorating the home with mango leaves hanging in front of the doorways, special prayers are conducted at Temples and homes. People wear new clothes and prepare a complete lunch menu replete with mouth-watery dishes. The highlight of which is Ugadi Pachdi – a hodgepodge of Mango, Neem, jaggery, Tamarind, chilly that represents the different flavors of life such as happiness, sorrow, anger, despair, and hope.
Since Ugadi marks bidding farewell to the past and welcoming the future with a hope it will be promising, symbolically a lot of things happen around Ugadi. People who could afford would paint their houses, throw out worn out household items and replace them with new ones. What is unique about this festival is the hope it enshrines on the minds of people driving them to pursue innovative things.
