Ugadi Festival Quotes
The festival of Ugadi heralds the beginning Kannada New Year and is celebrated all over Karnataka with traditional fervor. The word ‘Ugadi’ is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Yugadi’, which means ‘beginning of a new Yuga or era’. The festival usually falls on the second half of March or early April.
Ugadi also marks the advent of the spring season when Mother Nature blooms with all her glory. Blossoming flowers and expansive tracts of green paddy fields dot the landscape filling the hearts of people with joy and contentment. Preparations usually start a week ahead with people cleaning their houses and shopping for new clothes.
On Ugadi day, after a pre-dawn bath people decorate the entrance of their houses with fresh mango leaves. The green mango leaves tied to the doorway signify a good crop and general well being. Another unique feature of the festival is the “Ugadi Pachchadi” delicacy made from Neem flowers, mango juice, honey, sugar (jaggery) and other ingredients.
Fortunate is the one who has learned to Admire, but not to envy.
Good Wishes for a joyous Gudi Padwa and a Happy New Year with a plenty of Peace and Prosperity.
