Ugadhi and Gudi Padwa 2014 greetings to all

Today, 31 March 2014, is celebrated as the New Year’s day by the people of the states of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka as Ugadhi, and by the people of the state of Maharashtra as Gudi Padwa.  The Sindhi people celebrate their new year, Cheti Chand, one day later on 1st April.

Ugadhi is New Year according to Luni-Solar calendar. Luni-Solar calendars consider the position of the Moon and the position of the Sun to divide the year into months and days, and is followed in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra and some parts of Gujarat.

The counter-part of Luni-Solar calendar is Solar calendar which considers only position of the Sun to divide the year into months and days, which is followed by the rest of the people of India.

On this auspicious occasion, wish you all and your families a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.  May the new year bless you and your families with joy, prosperity, peace and happiness.
