Happy Ugadi & Gudi Padwa ...............

Ugadi is New Year festival for people of Karnataka & Andhra Pradesh .........
('Yuga' is the word for 'epoch' or 'era', and 'Aadi' stands for 'the beginning')

Kannada and Telugu people celebrate this festival with great fanfare
.........

The festive potion shared is called “Bevu-Bella” in Kannada & “Ugadi Pachhadi” in Telugu !!!
This potion has 6 main ingredients which symbolizes sadness, happiness, anger, fear, disgust, surprise .........

The same is called "Gudi Padwa" in Maharashtra celebrated & observed along with Ugadi
......... Have a good one this Friday !!!
