Ugadi is celebrated as the New Year's Day for Telugu, Kannada, Konkani and Marathi people of the Deccan region of India. The term Ugadi or Yugadi has been derived from the Sanskrit words "yuga," or age, and "adi," or beginning, and hence it is called as "the beginning of a new age."

The first day of Chaitra â€" the first month in the Panchang â€" falls on 29 March, Wednesday this year. IBTimes Singapore has compiled a list of Ugadi wishes, messages and greetings that you can share with your near and dear ones.
