    The Telugu new year starts from Ugadi. Ugadi is one of the traditional festivals of Andhra Pradesh. Ugadi is celebrated with different names in different parts of the country like Gudi Padwa in Maharashtra, Thappan in Rajasthan, Cheti Chand in Sind etc. In Andhra Pradesh the ritual of Ugadi begins with getting up early in the morning, after getting ready for prayers it is a tradition to eat Ugadi Pacchadi, combination of Sweetness, bitterness, hot and sour... It is not only at Andhra Pradesh, similar kind is the tradition in every culture to mark its significance, celebrated on 11th April (Thursday)

    Gudi (Flag) Hoisting is the most important event of Gudi Padwa. The Gudi (Flag) is hoisted on a Bamboo staff. The Gudi (Flag) is crafted out of Green and Yellow Silk cloth. On the top of the Bamboo pole, a bright goblet decorated with flowers is hanged. The Gudhi is decorated with Neem leaves, Mango leaves, red flowers and sweets (Gaohi). Rangoli is drawn around the Gudi in front of house to mark prosperity.

    Dear MathiRavi Sister,

    Glad you are awaiting to welcome Tamil Puthandu, can understand your happiness as the festival falls on a SUNDAY you get family time to celebrate and enjoy otherwise living abroad it is yet another working day. It is otherwise here in Tamilnadu as we miss a holiday because it falls on a Sunday

    I hope you have seen the Saisatcharitra Chapter allotted to you and you are following the same, I had aslo PMed you about the link, since there was no feedback I am making a mention here.

    Thanks, Puthandu Vazthukkal. Sairam
