Today our friends in Hindu cities and communities are celebrating Ugadi, the Telugu Hindu New Year Festival. The name Ugadi or Yugadi is a combination of the Sanskrit words yuga (age) and adi (starting) thus, “the beginning of a new age”.
Interestingly, Yugadi or Ugadi is associated with the current age we are living in, the Kali Yuga. A Festival for our Age….sounds so good!
The Festival is celebrated with a lot of simple but delectable dishes, recitals and beautiful observances. Above all the positive energies of love and good wishes are unmistakable. A friend posted the following wishes and blessings:
“May you have a year bright as the sunlight,
fragrant as the rose and sweet as the honey!
Wish you a happy and prosperous Ugadi !!”
