Happy Gudi Padwa 2014

Happy Gudi Padwa 2014In the western part of India, the people of Maharashtra will usher in the New Year on Gudi Padwa on 31 Mar 2014. This New Year celebration in Maharashtra is known as Gudi Padwa and it is one of the major festivals of this region.

The date of the celebration is decided by the Hindu calendar followed in India and according to that, the date of Gudi Padwa falls on the 1st day of the month of Chaitra, which is also known as the Chaitra Shukla Pratipada. The day also declares the onset of the spring and thus the beginning of the harvest season in the state.
According to the holy Hindu scripture, Bramha Purana, Lord Brahma created the universe on the day of Gudi Padwa and hence, the date is considered auspicious to bring in the new year. Marathis also believe that it is the day when Lord Rama returned to Ayodhya after slaying the demon king of Lanka, Ravana.

On Gudi Padwa Marathis will erect a gudi or a flag on their entrances. The flag is known as ‘Brahmadhwaj’ and is believed to be the harbinger of happiness, prosperity and victory.
Gudi Padwa is a three and a half day festival when the Marathis decorate the flag with garland, sugar crystals, flowers, mango leaves and then put a kalash at the top before erecting the ‘gudi’ at the front door. The ‘gudi’ is said to ward off the evil and bring in good luck and hope for the household.

Gudi Padwa has a great cultural influence over Marathis and they take this opportunity to showcase their traditions and customs. They will take special care in decorating gudis as they are considered to be very auspicious and important.

They normally wrap the long bamboo pole in bright color clothes. Earlier a gold or silver kalash was tied to the pole but now people use kalash made of copper or other economical metals. As is the custom, the gudi is hung at the entrance at sunrise and removed before the sundown.

The celebration is marked by both rituals and festivities. Marathis offer a special puja of neem leaves, tamarind, jaggery, ajwain and gram pulses to the gudi. They would then eat the offering as they believe it can cure various blood related ailments. Cleaning the house and wearing new clothes are also the integral parts of the celebration. It is also believed that buying gold and silver on Gudi Padwa would ensure year long prosperity and as a result, long queues can be seen in front of jewelry shops across Maharashtra.

Preparing elaborate meals are considered essential and you can taste some of the best traditional dishes during this time namely puran poli, soonth pak, shrikhand, and jalebis.

Happy Birthday to Swami Vivekananda- The Man who has reached immortality!

     Swami Vivekananda:–

12 Jan 1863 — 4 July 1902

Swami Vivekananda was born on this day, January 12th, in 1863 in Kolkata. Here is a quote from the wiki entry on him.
Swami Vivekananda was born in an aristocratic Bengali family of Calcutta in 1863. Swami’s parents influenced his thinking—the father by his rational mind and the mother by her religious temperament. From his childhood, he showed inclination towards spirituality and God realization. While searching for a man who could directly demonstrate the reality of God, he came to Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa and became his disciple. As a guru, Ramakrishna taught him Advaita Vedanta (non-dualism) and that all religions are true, and service to man was the most effective worship of God. After the death of his Guru, Vivekananda became a wandering monk, touring the Indian subcontinent and getting first-hand knowledge of India’s condition. He later sailed to Chicago and represented India as a delegate in the 1893 Parliament of World Religions. An eloquent speaker, Vivekananda was invited to several forums in the United States and spoke at universities and clubs. He conducted hundreds of public and private lectures and classes, disseminating Vedanta and Yoga in America, England and a few other countries in Europe. He also established the Vedanta societies in America and England. Later he sailed back to India and in 1897 founded the Ramakrishna Math andRamakrishna Mission, a philanthropic and spiritual organization.

Happy Uttarayan 2013

Uttarayan Celebration

Uttarayan(known as Makar Sakranti in other parts of India) is the day when the sun starts to travel northwards marking the decline of winter. The days become longer, the skies clearer and the breeze cooler. Gujarat celebrates 2,000 festivals every year! Among these, the festival of Uttarayan is one of the grandest and stands tall. In Gujarat, Uttarayan is a holiday when every family can be met outdoors. People of all ages fly kites from dawn to dusk. Crowded rooftops, fun-loving rivalry to outdo each other in kite flying skills and delicious traditional Gujarati feast are the hallmarks of the day.

History & Significance:-The fascination and the revelry associated with the kite flying cuts across age groups, class and communities. Although, Uttarayan is predominantly a Hindu festival marking the awakening of the gods from their deep slumber, history has it that India developed a rich tradition of kite flying due to the patronage of the Kings and Nawabs who found the sport both entertaining and a way of displaying their prowess. Trained fliers were employed to fly kites for kings. Slowly, the art started becoming popular amongst the masses. Today, manufacturing of kites is a serious business. It attracts big names of the corporate world as kites provide for the most cost-effective opportunity for branding. The stakes are high and prizes for the competition grand.

Months before the festival of Uttarayan, homes in the localities of various cities in Gujarat turn into kite producing factories with all family members doing their bit in the seasonal cottage business. The paper and sticks are cut, the glue is stirred and thousands of kites are prepared in the market. The string is coated with a special glass powder and rice paste, all set to cut each other’s strings and knock down the kites. The size of the kite ranges from nine inches to three feet.
Members of various communities irrespective of cast and creed are engaged in the business of kites. Rich or poor, people enjoy this festival in their own ways. The aerodynamic skill, devotion and ingenuity that goes into the kite making and flying is almost a religion in itself, honed to the level of an art form, though it looks deceptively simple.

Uttarayan is the time to indulge in ceaseless amazement – in the most pulse racing kite competitions. There are kites and more kites, in all shapes and designs, but some stand out for their sheer size and novelty.
And the excitement continues even after dark. The nights see the arrival of the illuminated box kites, often in a series strung on one line, to be launched into the sky. Known as tukkals, these kites add a touch of splendor to the dark sky. What’s more, the day is marked with the traditional food/delicacy festival of Gujarat like the undhiyu (a delicacy of vegetables), jalebi (sweets), til ladoo (sweets made of sesame seeds) and chikki for the guests from different parts of world.

The International Kite Festival

Every year, the extraordinary fanfare associated with the paper works of art called kite brings people together from far and wide – be it from Japan, Australia, Malaysia, USA, Brazil, Canada and European Countries – to participate in the International Kite Festival.

–>Happy UTtarayaN to all my FrIeNd………………… enjoy with safety 🙂 make it memorable
