Happy Ugadi 2016!
The first day of Chaitra — the first month in the Panchang — falls Friday, April 8, this year. The day, which is celebrated as the New Year's Day, is known as Ugadi or Yugadi in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telengana.
The term Ugadi has been derived from the Sanskrit words "yuga," or age, and "adi," or beginning, and hence it is called as "the beginning of a new age."
The festival is also celebrated by Maharashtrians as Gudi Padwa April 8. As per the Hindu solar calendar, Keralities, Tamilians and Bengalis will celebrate New Year as Vishu, Puthandu and Pohela Boishakh, respectively, April 14.
