Gudi Padva New Year

वसंत ऋतुच्या आगमनी,कोकीळ गाइ मंजूळ गाणी..
नवीन पल्लवी वृक्षलतांची,नवीन आशा नववर्षाची..
उभारुन गुढी..प्रेमाची,विश्वासाची अन विजयाची..
सजवुन मधुर वर्तनाच्या हारकड्यांनी..
मराठी नववर्षाची सुरुवात करुया साजरी..
गुढीपाडव्याच्या मुहूर्ती,सुखसमृध्दी नांदो जीवनी..
आरंभ होई चैत्रमासीचा,रंगगंधांच्या उधळणीचा..
घास घेउनी पुरणपोळीचा,साजरादिन हो गुढीपाडव्याचा..
सरुन जावो दु:खआपदा,नांदो मांगल्य सर्वदा..
ह्याच माझ्या आपल्याला शुभेच्छा..

– ही कविता स्वप्नाने लिहिली आहे.

Today is “Gudhi Padwa”, the new year celebrated by Maharashtra. It falls on the first day of Chaitra, the first month of the Hindu calendar. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Brahma created the universe today. Gudi’s (Brahmadhwaj – flags of Brahma) are raised by individual houses as a symbol and prayer. It is also said that Lord Rama returned victorious to Ayodhya on this day.

Kannada and Telugu people call this festival Ugadi.

Gudi padwa for me meant a fest of puran polis. Oh, mom used to make me eat neem leaves as part of the ritual before the treat!
