Ugadi Rangolis

Rangoli: UGAADI - 2008

The festival of "UGAADI" is celebrated on the first day of Telugu/Kannada new year every year. Each year has got it's own specific name. The name for this new year is "SARVADHAARI" (on the same basis ,we have 2007/08 and so on as per English calender}.

On this day telugu people prepare "UGAADI PACHADI"( chutnee}using six ingredients (SHADRUCHIES} such as SALT, GREEN CHILLIES {in some places pepper is also used}TAMARIND, NEEM FLOWERS, JAGGERY AND RAW MANGOES. The philosophy behind this is that life is a mixture of experiences and we have to face it with an even mind.
Myself and my friend Bharathi got an idea to create a rangoli using above items. So we created a rangoli with pepper and other one is without pepper, mango leaves, neem leaves, flowers, bananas, turmaric, kumkum boxes are only for decoration. Any how it is a festival day, these items are also giving auspicious look. By seeing this rangoli younger generation knows what items to use for "UGAADI PACHADI".
WE WISH ONE AND ALL A HAPPY UGAADI.
THANKS.
