Ugadi or Yugadi is celebrated as the first day of the Telugu New year by people of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Karnataka. New Telugu Samvatsara, which is cycle of sixty years, begins on this day. All sixty Samvatsara are given a unique name.

In Maharashtra, Ugadi festival is celebrated as Gudi Padwa or the Marathi New Year. Both Ugadi and Gudi Padwa are celebrated on the same day. Ugadi or Yugadi can be said as the New Year of the Deccan region that falls between Vindhyachal Mountains and the Kaveri river which includes the states of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra, Goa and karnataka. It is celebrated as the first day of the Shukla paksh of Chaitra month, usually in the month of March or April.

Ugadi is new year as per Luni-Solar calendar. Luni-Solar calendars considers the position of the Moon and the Sun to divide the year into months and days. Whereas Solar calendar considers only position of the Sun to divide the year into months and days. Just because of this reason, Hindu new year is celebrated twice in the year with different names and at two different times of the year. The Hindu new year based on Solar calendar is known as Thapna in Rajasthan, Gudi Padwa in Maharashtra, 
Sajubu nongma padwa or Meetei Cheiraoba in Manipur, Samvatsar Padvo among Konkanis in Goa and Kerala, Cheti Chand among Sindhis, Puthandu in Tamil Nadu, Bihu in Assam, Vaisakhi in Punjab, Navreh in Kashmir, Pana Sankranti in Orissa and Naba Barsha in West Bengal. Chaitra Navratri festival also starts on this day for North Indians.

The day of Yugadi begins with ritual oil-bath followed by prayers. Oil bath and eating Neem leaves are must rituals suggested by scriptures. North Indians don't celebrate Ugadi but start nine days Chaitra Navratri Puja on the same day and also eat Neem with Mishri on the very first day of Navratri.

Ugadhi is not celebrated in Adhik Maas (extra month added after every 32 months, 16 days, and 8 Ghatis). Ugadi is called Chaitra Shuddha Padyami in Sanskrit.

The Lord of the first day of the New Year is considered as the Lord of the entire year. In 2023, first day comes on a Wednesday. Lord mercury or Buddha Greh is considered as the Lord of Wednesday. Thus, Lord of this New Year is Mercury.

Significance of Ugadi or Yugadi

Ugadi festival comes after the sun changes its position from the southern to the northern hemisphere during the Spring Equinox. It marks the beginning of the spring and thus it symbolises new life, new hopes and aspirations. It is believed that Sri Brahma, the creator of the universe, started his work on this day.

Rang Panchami 2023 Significance

Rang Panchami is a major festival of India especially of Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. The festival of Ranga Panchami is believed to help in activating the five key elements (Panch Tattva) which supports the formation of the universe. These five key elements comprise air, sky, earth, water, and fire.

As per Sanatan Dharma, it is believed that the body of a human being is also made up of these Pancha Tattva only and the invoking of these elements support the spiritual development of a person.

It is believed that when the holy fire of Holika Dahan is lit, all negative qualities including Tamsic and Rajasic traits are eliminated. These negative things cause hurdles in one’s path to Moksha, which means liberation from the cycle of birth, life and death. So, after these negative traits are gone, one is only left with Sattvic Guna, which is positive in nature. This helps in the path to salvation. As all negativity is eliminated because of the fire, the atmosphere is filled with positivity and divine presence can be felt. Thus, after celebration of this, people play with colours, sing joyous songs and exchange greetings of the day.

In cities such as Indore where Rang Panchami is immensely popular and deeply revered, Holi colors are mixed with water and then poured on others. The local municipal corporation sprinkles color mixed water on the main streets of old Indore for which they used Fire Brigade vehicles earlier for the same purpose. A procession is headed by a water tank with a high-pressure jet, two ceremonial cannons, and a camel circumambulator the town. Everyone in the street gets colored. Thousands of people gather in front of Rajwada, Indore to get colored by the canon. Rangapanchami is an age old festival, which was celebrated during the Holkar reign and continues to be celebrated till date.

Holi Bhai Dooj 2023 Date

Holi Bhai Dooj 2023 Date

Bhai Dooj, one of the important Hindu festivals, strengthens the bond of affection between brothers and sisters. The name has "Dooj" word which means the second one. Here it means the festival is observed on second day i.e. Krishna Paksh Dwitiya Tithi of Chaitra month as per Hindu calendar.

Bhai Dooj is also known as Bhratri Dwitiya. Two Bhai Dooj festivals are observed in Hindu calendar, one in the month of Chaitra and another in the month of Kartika. One is the Holi Bhai Dooj which comes up after one or two days of Holi festival and the other one, which is more popular, is observed two days after Deepavali Puja and it's also known as Bhai Dooj.

Holi Bhai Dooj, which is quite popular in some regions, is less known festival. Holy books such as Dharma Sindhu, Nirnaya Sindhu and Vratraj also do not mention about Holi Bhai Dooj. You must note that Holi Bhai Dooj should be observed when Dwitiya Tithi prevails. Thus depending on Holika Dahan day, it might fall either next day or on second day after Rangwali Holi.

Significance of Holi Bhai Dooj

Holi Bhai Dooj is dedicated to the bond of brothers and sisters. Brothers visit their sister's home, sisters apply tilak, pray for the long life of their brothers, do puja together and celebrate their bond. Brothers return the favour by bringing gifts for the sisters. Sisters pray for the well-being of their brothers and follow the rituals which are believed to be started by Goddess Yamuna. After puja, brothers and sisters enjoy the feast together.

The Bhai Dooj ritual was started by Goddess Yamuna, the daughter of Surya God. It is said that her brother Lord Yama could never visit her home as his work kept him occupied always. He always used to politely decline Yami's invitation. However, one day, he surprised Yami by visiting her house and granted her a wish. Yamuna, who was delighted to meet her brother, asked him to bless the brothers with a long life on the day of Bhai Dooj. She also asked him to bless all the devotees who would take a bath in her holy waters. Hence, if the brother and the sister take a dip in the holy river of Yamuna on this day, they get a better life with fewer troubles. Thus, this day is very important in Hindu traditions.
