Gorgeous visuals of the grand Gudi Padwa celebrations across Maharashtra

The First day of the month of Chaitra is celebrated as the Hindu New Year in many states in India. In Maharashtra, it is celebrated as Gudi Padwa while for Telugu and Kannadiga people it is celebrated as Ugadi. Gudi Padwa in Maharashtra is celebrated with much fanfare and every year, the festival brings glimpses of the rich traditions and proud Maratha heritage.

The celebrations were not limited to Rangoli alone. Maharashtrian women dressed in traditional attire and carrying saffron flags took out rallies riding two-wheelers. The visuals have all the aspects of feminine beauty and power captured in frames. Shobha yatras or rallies are an essential part of Gudi Padwa celebrations and Maharashtra saw a lot of it yesterday.
