Gudi Padwa or Samvatsar Padvo will be observed on Saturday, 2 April, this year. According to the Hindu lunar calendar, Gudi Padwa is the first day of the Chaitra month. For the Marathi and Konkani communities, the day heralds the arrival of spring and marks the start of the new year.

Gudi Padwa comes from the words 'gudi', meaning flag or symbol of Lord Brahma, and 'padwa', which means the first day of the moon, which is why the festival is marked on the first day of Chaitra.

People in Karnataka, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh celebrate Gudi Padwa as Ugadi. The lively festival also marks the start of the harvest season.

The day starts with a ceremonial oil bath and prayers. According to the scriptures, taking an oil bath and eating neem leaves is considered good on this day. People decorate their house with rangolis and fresh flowers and also prepare a variety of delicacies such as puran polis, basundi etc on this day.

People also hang Gudi flags at the main entrance of their house or on a window. The flag is said to protect against evil and bring prosperity.
