Gudi Padwa: A new way to celebrate
Gudi Padwa is a new year celebration for a number of Indians, especially Maharashtrians. Also known as Ugadi, this spring festival also marks the beginning of the harvest season. Considering that it is a grand celebration, it is a time to get together with family and exchange sweets and gifts. Til gud, a sweet delicacy made with jaggery and sesame seeds is a popular dish during the festival. The purpose of this celebration is to start the year with good vibes and positive feelings for other fellow beings.
Some also choose to buy gold or diamond jewellery on this occasion. You can now do it online from the safety of your home. The celebration in 2020 is bound to be a little different for us. But don’t let that lower your spirits. Instead, you can celebrate it with as much enthusiasm and that while staying safe indoors. Read on to know how!
Greet your friends on video calls
Like all other festivals, Gudi Padwa, too, calls for a little meet-and-greet with your near and dear ones. You can do the same by arranging a video call with your friends. If you’ve planned this ahead, you can ensure that all your friends make it for the call. We understand that it may not be as exciting as actually meeting them but it is the next best thing.
Sharing Gudi Padwa recipes online
Though til gud is the main delicacy during Gudi Padwa, there are a lot of other tasty sweet dishes too. You can come up with something new as well, there is no restriction on that.
