May this Ugadi, Gudi Padwa bring you new spirit
and new prosperity
Wishing you happy Ugadi, Gudi Padwa.
For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning. Happy Ugadi, Gudi Padwa
Like birds, let us, leave behind what we don’t need to carry…
GRUDGES SADNESS PAIN FEAR and REGRETS.
Life is beautiful, Enjoy it. Happy Gudi Padwa, Ugadi
