Out of more than fifty Hindu Festivals, Ugadi is the first and foremost festival that Telugu New Year starts on this day. Ugadi means the beginning of a new year. This year Ugadi falls on March 30, 2006. The New Year is ‘Vyayanama year’. The name itself says that Vyaya means expenditure. Therefore, the year can be termed as the year of expenditure. Ugadi is celebrated on Chaitra sukla Padyami. However, in India, different people in different places celebrate New Year at different months. In some places, the New Year is celebrated in Vaisakha month, in some places in Margasira month and in some places, it is celebrated on Phalguna month. The reason is that the New Year consideration is taken into consideration in different month. However, in Telugu people celebrates New Year on Chaitra Sukla Padyami from ancient times.
Guru holds the portfolio of King. As a result, there is every possibility of white collared crimes will mount up and at the same time, prices of precious metals will go up. It is likely that some strange events may take place in temples. It is indicative that there may be a set back in financial front. Violent activities may rule the politics. It may not be surprising, if tremors cause hardship to the common person. As Sukra holds the Minister portfolio, it is indicative that youth may indulge in unlawful and unethical practices leaving our age-old custom. Crime rate in politics, cine field and educational front will be on the mounting side and the prime agents will be women. Some of the prominent leaders should exercise more care as their health will be at stake. Political leaders should exercise more care and guard against themselves from any untoward events from terrorist targets. There is every possibility that air, train and road accidents will be on the mounting side. Over all, the Government will have to face a tough time. Loss due to cyclones will cause hurdles to the people. Internal enemies may cause some trouble to the political parties. Some financial scams will come to light and keep a target to the ruling party. Some of the political leaders will be involved.
Due to Sani movements, there may be some unfavorable things happen. As Sani is moving in Karkataka Rasi, the watery sign, there is every possibility of earthquakes causing huge loss especially to Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Orissa, Pondicherry and Andhra Pradesh.
