Yuga Yugaadi kaledaroo Yugaadi Marali Baruthide
Hosa Varushake Hosa Harushava
Hosathu Hosathu Tharuthide……
The unforgettable Da Ra Bendre’s poertry is what comes to my mind on this wonderful day, every year!!! As the poem indicates, Ugadi brings a fresh perspective to life. Ugadi is celebrated by the people of Karnataka, Andhrapradesh and Maharashtra during late March-early April, heralding the arrival of Spring! Joy is in the air everywhere, people look forward to Spring to celebrate life, to renew hope. People in Karnataka partake offering of Bevu-bella, signifying the bitter-sweet in life.
As the new year dawns, may it bring happiness and prosperity to you and your loved ones! Happy Ugadi!!!
