It is Padvo in Goa and I think it is the same festival with different names in different parts of India.
Wishing all Gudi Padva.

Thank you and wish you the same. The message of Ugadi that is made available from celebrating this festival that all the kinds of feelings of life are common in nature, getting exited at the time of happiness and becoming sad at the time of unfavorable situations must not be done. All the feelings in the life must be seen under common shade and the New Year must be started without any feelings except the help to mankind when ever possible from the self side...!

Thank you. wish you and your family Happy Ugadi greetings. Ugadi is special for the mango pieces mixed in tamarind juice, jaggery and neem flower petals offered on that day..!This year it is even more special because it's name is Vijaya naama. It is said to bring 'success' for all..!

It is a New Year
As per the Hindu Lunar Calendar, first day (Prathama thithi) of Sukla Paksha (Bright fortnight) in Chaithra Masam is considered as the day on which the Creation had started that marked the beginning of Sri Swetha Varaha Kalpa. That day is being referred to as Kalpaadi. It is also considered as the day on which the Yuga had commenced and hence, it is also referred to as Yugaadi or Ugadi. As per the astrological estimates it is said that Lord Sri Krishnas Niryana took place on the first day of the bright fortnight in the month of Chaitra Masam that marked the beginning of Kaliyuga. Hence, Ugadi can be assumed as the beginning of Kaliyuga.
