Ugadi: Regional New Year In Karnataka

  • Ugadi is made up of two words: 'Yuga', which means 'age' in Sanskrit, and 'Adi', which means 'beginning' in both Sanskrit and Kannada. Karnatake celebrates the New Year with this celebration. This day is also known as Chandramana Ugadi, and it marks the start of the Hindu Lunar calendar's New Year, which generally occurs in the months of March and April (as per the Gregorian calendar). This fortunate day is marked by religious observances and the presence of consumers. During the months leading up to Chaitra, it is traditional for individuals to shop a lot (the first month in the Hindu calendar). This day is considered as the herald of the harvest season and is celebrated with zeal.
