The beginning of a new age

By Hand On The Hip - 3/28/2017


Well, the title says it all! Happy Ugadi one and all! Ugadi is a combination of two Sanskrit words, yuga which means age and adi stands for beginning. This day is observed as a new year by Hindus in different parts of India. For instance, it's called Gudi Padwa in Maharashtra.

This Ugadi, why don't you check out some fabulous kurtis designed by Usha from Namam? The whole idea is to bring back Indian tribal clothing and jewelry. They are flowy, comfy and very, very elegant. I picked up this wine colored kurta and a multicolored shawl and some statement jewelry to complete the look. What do you guys think?

On this special day, we Kannadigas like to celebrate by preparing this delicious sweet roti called Holige or Obbattu which is served with ghee or milk. But apart from that, I think the whole point of celebrating the start of a new year is to start making changes in our lives. As Brad Paisley said, "Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one." and on that note, let's all strive to become better versions of ourselves and make world a better place to live in.
