ReSanskrit wishes you a very happy new year this Gudi Padwa and Ugadi! नववर्ष की हार्दिक शुभकामनायें!
The word पाडवा (pāḍavā) or पाडवो (pāḍavo) or पड्ड्वा/पाड्ड्वो (pāḍḍavā/pāḍḍavo) comes from the Sanskrit word प्रतिपद (pratipada) or प्रतिपदा (pratipadā), which refers to the first day of a lunar fortnight.
Gudhi Padva signifies the arrival of spring and to the reaping of Rabi crops. The festival is linked to the mythical day on which god Brahma created time and universe.
