The month of April witnesses Maharashtra drenched in a spirit of spring with their traditional new year.
Gudi Padwa marks an auspicious start of a new year and signifies reaping of Rabi crops. While some believe it to be a commemoration of Rama’s victory over Ravana; others consider it as a mythical day when Lord Brahma created the universe and time.
Women join the celebrations dressed in bright sarees embroidered with Gond art. The occasion like any other Indian festival is filled with symbolical rituals and customs. The Gudi,whichis mandatory to this festival and lends this day its name, is a scarf-like cloth of bright hue (symbolising Brahma Dhwaj) tied at the top of a long bamboo. It is considered to protect against evil powers and bring in prosperity in life.
On this pious occasion that also marks the birth anniversary of India Imprints, our entire team wishes you all, more of happy times and good luck amidst this spiritual fervour.
