About The Event

Ugadi, marked as the New Year by millions across Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Maharashtra, is a festival that embodies joy, renewal, and the vibrancy of life. Falling on the first day of Chaitra, the first month in the Hindu lunar calendar, Ugadi ushers in the spring season, symbolizing new beginnings and fresh starts.

The essence of Ugadi is beautifully captured in the unique traditions that define this auspicious day. Families begin the celebration with ritualistic showers, followed by prayers, and the decoration of their homes with fresh mango leaves and colourful rangolis. The highlight of Ugadi is the preparation of the 'Ugadi Pachadi,' a special dish that blends six flavours - sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, and astringent. Each taste represents an emotion of life, reminding us of the diverse experiences that the coming year will bring.

Ugadi is also a time for reflection, setting goals, and making resolutions. It's a day when the past is forgiven, and the future is embraced with hope and enthusiasm. Reading the 'Panchanga', or the traditional almanac, is a significant ritual that predicts the events and trends of the year ahead.

As we celebrate Ugadi, let's embrace the spirit of renewal, nurture our relationships, and look forward to a year filled with prosperity, happiness, and health. May this Ugadi bring you and your loved ones all the joy and success you desire. Happy Ugadi to all our SVWT family!
