Gudi Padwa is observed mainly by Marathis and Konkani Hindus, and revolves around the spring celebrations and marks the harvest of the Rabi crop. The festival is known as Ugadi in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

According to legends, the festival is associated with the day Hindu god Brahma created time and universe.

Ugadi sees the drawing of colourful patterns on the floor called kolamulus, mango leaf decorations and the buying of gifts. A special dish called pachaadi that contains sweet, sour, salty and bitter elements is prepared to celebrate the occasion.

In Maharashtra, families cook Puran Poli, a dish which is an integral part of Gudi Padwa.

This year a countrywide lockdown to combat the dreaded coronavirus pandemic means that one might not be able to celebrate the festival with friends and relatives.

One can send them wishes and greetings and reach out during times of social distancing and self-isolation.
