Gudi Padwa will be celebrated on March 28, 2017, and it is the first day of the Chaitra month according to the lunar calendar. The auspicious festival marks the celebration of the victory march which was performed by the great Maratha leader Shivaji Maharaja, who first celebrated Gudi Padwa. The word ‘Padva’ or ‘Padwa’ is derived from the Sanskrit word paddava which marks the first day of the phases of moon. On this auspicious day, devotees take a bamboo stick or a wooden stick which is covered up with a piece of red or yellow coloured cloth. Later on, a Kalash made up of copper, silver or bronze is kept on it. Devotees then place the Gudi outside the door and hoist at a height. Usually, Maharashtrians also prepare saakhar gaathi which is made up of sugar candy, neem leaves and are hung along with Gudi. Happy Gudi Padwa in advance Wishes, Quotes, Gif Images, WhatsApp & Facebook SMS Messages to wish Happy Gudi Padwa 2017
