Ugadi history and Importance:
Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and karnataka observe Ugadi or Yugadi as the start of the New Year. Yug (era) and Adi are the two words that make up the phrase "ugadi." (new beginning). Yugadi thus represents fresh starts. This day is observed as the first day of the Hindu calendar because it is thought that Lord Brahma created the universe on this day.
Indian scholar Bhaskaracharya recognized Ugadi as the start of the new year in the 12th century. After a harsh winter, the celebration heralds the arrival of spring and warmer temperatures. This happy occasion is enjoyed with friends and family in happiness and closeness. Additionally, people make special meals, donate to charities, prepare gifts like new clothes for their loved ones, and go to temples to worship.
