Yugadi also known as Ugadi or Samvatsradi is south India festival. It is the New Year’s Day for the people of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. The same day is celebrated as Gudi Padwa in Maharashtra, and Konkanis celebrate this day as Sansar Padvo or Samsar Padwo.
In 2016, Ugadi – Yugadi will be celebrated on Friday, 8th April 2016..
This day is marked by symbolic eating of a specific mixture of six tastes called Ugadi Pachhadi in Telugu and Bevu-Bella in Kannada which symbolizes the fact that life is a mixture of different experiences (sadness, happiness, anger, fear, disgust, surprise), which should be accepted together and with equanimity through the New Year.
The name Ugadi is derived from the name “Yuga Adi”, which means ‘the beginning of a new age’.
