Easy hacks to get ready for Ugadi celebrations with your family

Ugadi is one of the most awaited festivals in India and it is celebrated across the southern states of Karnataka, Telangana, and Andhra Pradesh. Ugadi is the traditional new year according to the Hindu lunisolar calendar. As per the Hindu mythology, Lord Brahma created the universe on this day, therefore, Ugadi is believed to be the first day of the universe’s creation. People pray for prosperity, wellness, and wealth during this festival. Families come together to celebrate this special day with their loved ones.

Nayana, a teacher and mother of a 4-year-old says, “I have fond memories of celebrating Ugadi since childhood. It is an auspicious occasion close to my heart and our families celebrate it with a lot of zeal each year. I ensure to make this festival special for my kids too. Therefore, I tidy up my house before the festivities and prepare special dishes for them. We also wear new clothes and worship our diety by offering the authentic bevu bella. The ingredients consist of neem flower, tamarind, green chilli, raw mango, salt and jaggery. For such celebrations, I cannot stress the importance of thoroughly cleaning your floors with a neem-based 100% natural action floor cleaner like Nimyle to remove any dirt providing anti-bacterial protection to your home. Neem has been an inevitable part of our Indian culture, rituals, and festivities that prompted me to try Nimyle which has turned out to be a great experience.’’
