Gudi Gudi Good Stuff!
Yesterday, Mumbaikars celebrated Gudi Padwa, Hindu New Year with traditional fervour and welcomed it as per the Shalivahan Shaka calendar. The traditional Gudi Padwa rally, also known as the 'Shobha Yatra' is a procession carried out at several Maharashtra dominated areas like Girgaum, Dadar, Parel, Walkeshwar, Jogeshwari, Thane, Dombivili and Badlapur. Seen here are young girls usually beating the dhol (drum) and reveling in enthusiasm.

Alongside the men, women rode bikes with their heads draped in turbans. Households across the city and its satellites, witnessed hectic activity with family members installing the traditional 'Gudi' – a long bamboo stick with a new silk cloth, garland and a dangling neem twig. It also has a silver or metal pot on it.

As tradition goes, the long 'Gudi' symbolises victory and inspires people to prosper materially and spiritually. Young girls wore traditional nine yard saris during the Gudi Padwa celebration and they dished out sweets like 'Puran Poli' and 'Shrikhand' along with 'Aambe daal' and 'Sunth Paak'.

ADC photographers Shyam Iyer, Trupti Arekar, Santosh Gupta and Azad Shrivastav capture the moments from Gudi Padwa celebrations from the city and its suburbs.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You may want to increase the scope of your work now and this will mean a lot of publicity. It is time that those around you sit up and take note of your skills. Offers from abroad are exciting but do not promise everything that you would want from them. Your fears about the future of your relationship with your beloved could create some insecurity. It may have to do with a change of location. Rest assured that your will get some good news about it soon.
