For the unversed, Gudi Padwa is observed on the first day of Chaitra, which marks the start of the Marathi New Year. Traditionally, the Maharashtrians use flowers and mango leaves to decorate their homes. Devotees go to temples to seek blessings and take part in processions. Usually, a gudi, flag-like structure constructed of bamboo, silk, and cloth is adorned with flowers, neem leaves, and a copper or silver pot and put up on open spaces or outside doors.
