SpiceFlair Newsletter for April 2013

SpiceFlair wishes everyone Very Happy Ugadi / Gudi Padwa / Cheti Chand.
The name Yugadi or Ugadi is derived from the Sanskrit words yuga (age) and ādi (beginning): “the beginning of a new age”.
Hence, Ugadi means….New Life, new Hope, new Aspirations and new Beginning. Let’s make each day Ugadi!
