  1. A nice post on Ugadi Day on 25th!

    Every festival has its own significance and reasoning for its observance!

    And you have referred to “pachadi”, a dish prepared on the occasion – a reminder to people of the exact prevalence of a variety of EXPERIENCES in life that we face – a combination that really makes it monotony-free!

    Sharing, of course, a phenomenon, being practiced by people of all “faith”- a sure way to joy and happiness – which nothing else can provide us!

    Let us give and show our concern for the HUMANITY!
