Gudi Padwa is celebrated by people in India to mark the first day of the Hindu luni-solar calendar. The festival derives its name from two words — 'gudi' which is the flag of Lord Brahma and 'padwa' signifies the first day of the phase of the moon. While Maharashtrians and Konkanis call their new year celebrations Gudi Padwa, in Karnataka, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, the festival is known as Ugadi. It is being celebrated on April 13 this year. The festival is celebrated on the first day of the Hindu lunisolar calendar month of Chaitra. It also marks the onset of spring and harvest season.
The day is celebrated by buying and gifting new clothes, drawing colourful rangolis or muggulu, and feasting on festive dishes. People start the festivities by taking the traditional oil bath and consuming neem leaves. It is believed that consuming the leaves purifies the blood and increases one’s immunity against diseases. Chaitra Navaratri is also observed for nine days starting from the first day of the luni-solar calendar.
