Thumbs up Happy New Year - Today Is Gudi Padva



Gudi Padva Ki Shubhkamnaye

About Gudi Padwa

Gudi Padwa is celebrated on the first day of the Chaitra month. Gudi Padwa is celebrated as the New Year day by Maharashtrians.

Gudi Padwa is also known as Ugadi in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. This festival marks the beginning of the spring season. People celebrate this festival with great spirit and joy.

Houses are cleaned prior to the festival. Colourful rangoli designs are drawn at entrances. New clothes are worn on this day. There is a family gathering and Maharashtrian delicacies are prepared for everyone. The Maharashtrians make puran poli or sweet rotis, soonth pak and usal.

Traditionally, bittersweet leaves of the neem tree are eaten on this day. A paste of crushed neem leaves, cumin seeds, jaggery and salt is taken before eating any food in the morning.

On this day, gudis are hung outside the houses or in the localities. A 'gudi' is a pole on the top of which an upturned brass or silver pot called a kalash is placed. The gudi is covered with a colourful silk cloth and decorated with marigold flowers, coconuts, and mango leaves that symbolize nature's bounty. Gudi is worshipped by offering sandalwood paste, turmeric and vermilion. Then, boys and young men of the locality form a pyramid and the person on top of the pyramid breaks the coconut which is in the kalash.

Gudi Padwa is considered a very auspicious day. New ventures are begun, house-warming poojas are performed, and people also may choose to buy gold, silver or property on this day. There are some elgends behind the celebration of Gudi Padwa. It is said that the Universe was created by Brahma on this day and Satyuga (The Age of Truth and Justice) began.

It is also believed that on this day, King Vali was killed by Rama and Shri Rama returned to Ayodhya victorious.

This is one of the 3 and a half days in the Hindu Lunar calendar, whose every moment is considered auspicious.

Felt good today. For the first time I erected a Gudi in front of my house. Another step in establishing my identity. A Hindu and a Marathi!

Happy Gudi Padva to us all.

In Maharashtra alone? Today is first day of our Hindu lunar calender. Beginning of our new year.


This is one of the 3 and a half days in the Hindu Lunar calendar, whose every moment is considered auspicious.

Yes. Is the reason ... column four in attached Panchang is important to me. I keep note of a particular 3 and a half day period of every month in our Hindu calender which are danger days to my personal rashi! All of us irespective of our individual rashis have them. No brahmin or priest knows about it ... may be they do ... but refuse to share ... trade secret!
