Happy Gudi Padwa (New Year)
Today is 'Gudi Padwa', the Marathi New Year. This day is celebrated on Shuddha Pratipada, the first day in the Hindu month of Chaitra (March-April). Festivities of Gudi Padwa lasts for three and a half days. The word 'padwa' means the end of one harvesting season and beginning of another. According to Brahma Purana, Gudi Padwa is the day on which universe was created by Lord Brahma and Satyug began.
The photograph is of the building of our new flat in Gurgaon. I thought ushering in the New Year with the photo of the new home would be a good idea.
A Happy Gudi Padwa (New Year) to all!
