Ugadi (Ugādi, Samvatsarādi, Yugadi) is the New Year's Day for the Hindus of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Telangana in India. It is festively observed in these regions on the first day of the Hindu calendar month of Chaitra. This typically falls in March or April of the Gregorian calendar.
The day is observed by drawing colorful patterns on floor called Rangoli (or Kolam) mango leaf decorations on doors called torans, buying and giving gifts such as new clothes, giving charity to the poor, special bath followed by oil treatment, preparing and sharing a special food called pachadi, and visiting Hindu temples.
The same day is observed as a New Year by Hindus in many other parts of India. For example, it is called Gudi Padwa in Maharashtra. Source: Wikipedia (with minor edits to suit reader preferences).
