Marking Gudi Padva, the new year of the Maharashtrians

On April 6, the members of the century old Mahratta Education Fund based at T. T. K. Road, Alwarpet, marked ‘Gudi Padva’, the new year of the Maharashtrians, with a grand celebration.

The event started off with the ‘Panchanga Shravana’, the reading of the almanac by Sanskrit scholar Venkoba Rao. This was followed by a dance by two students, Apsara and Archita. Later the treasurer of the fund, V. Satyanarayan Rao, felicitated the dancers.
