Ugadi Greetings
by Dr. Kumarendra Mallick Bookmark and Share
 
Celebrations galore. After the April 2nd jubilations following the historic cricket World Cup victory, this year Ugadi gets extra importance for merry making. Ugadi, the New Year in Andhra and Karnataka, Gudi Padwa in Maharastra and Goa, Cheti Chand in Sindh, Sajibu Cheiraoba in Manipur, Bihu in Assam, Vishu in Kerala and different other names for the new year in other regions in India, this day signifies new life and is associated with spring, mango, jasmine flowers, cuckoo. Young girls celebrate with new dresses, designing rangoli in front of the houses, singing and dancing.
 
In Andhra a special preparation, called on this occasion, called Ugadi Paachedi, with six ingradients - all new products - neem flowers, jaggery (and ripe banana pieces), green chillies, tamarind juice, pieces of raw mangoes and salt, is prepared. These six ingradients have six essences (Sadarasa) essential in life for both pleasure and pain. These are, respectively, bitter, sweet, hot, sour and salty.
 
On the occasion of the advent of the new year, Ugadi, Boloji extends its greetings to all the writers, patrons, readers and all others in general, and wishes all the very best to happen during the coming days
