Gudi Padwa marks the start of the Hindu New Year. This festival is widely celebrated throughout India, but especially in Maharashtra.
To welcome the New Year, a Gudi is placed in front of the house’s front door. A gudi is made by tying a silk cloth to the end of a long bamboo. It is adorned with a necklace made of sugar cane, neem leaves, mango twigs, and marigold flowers, as well as a kalash. This Gudi is pointing to the sky. This Gudi is regarded as a victory symbol. Many dishes like Puranpoli or Shrikhand Puri are made.
The festival gives us a message to forget the past and face life with new enthusiasm and happiness.
