Gudhi Padva / Cheti Chand / Ugadi is the first day of beginning of the New Year according to the lunisolar Hindu calendar. On the festive day, people take the time out to do some spring cleaning. Women and children work on intricate rangoli designs on their doorsteps, the vibrant colours mirroring the burst of colour associated with spring. It is a time for family gatherings!!!
