Namaskar !!,

This is the word in Marathi language which means “Hello”. Marathi – It is my Mother Tongue and Most spoken language in Maharashtra.

Few days back, when I was browsing SCN I saw a post on “Blog It Forward” and had no idea what BIF is all about, but later on I found many such posts through which I got to know many people.

I was blogged in blog forward by Blog it Forward – Dibyendu Patra and @Blog It Forward- Chandra Shekhar Agarwal . Thank you both for blogging it forward to me. I’d also like to extend thanks to Moshe Naveh for his unique and creative initiative. I admire him for this brilliant idea.

Introduction:

My name is Sneha Ganesh Jadhav, born and brought up in Parbhani. After schooling I moved to Pune to pursue Computer Engineering from MIT College of engineering (Pune University). 

I started my career with world’s third largest Telecom Company named Vodafone India Shared Service Private Limited (VISPL) as SAP ABAP Developer.

Fun facts about my country:

India is the seventh largest country by area, the second most populous country having population over 1.2 billion, and the most populous democracy in the world. India got independence on 15 august 1947. India is a union of states comprising of twenty-nine states and seven territories . India has 122 major languages and 1599 other languages.

India’s languages, dance, religions, music, food and customs differ from place to place within the country. Many elements of India’s diverse cultures, such as religions, yoga and cuisine, have had a profound impact across the world.

Republic day is the date on which the constitution of India comes into force on date 26th Jan 1950. The republic day celebration is held in the capital, New Delhi at Rajpath before the president of India. On this day, ceremonious parade take place at Rajpath, they are performed as a tribute to India, various states and departments from India Participate in this parade.

The parade showcases India’s defense capability, cultural and social heritage.

Fortunately Maharashtra’s tableau got the first position this year, which depicted ‘Wari to Pandharpur’ (the pilgrimage to Pandharpur). This is the 6th time Maharashtra state is awarded for best tableau.

Fun fact about my city:

We celebrate so many Utsava (festivals) at our hometown.  Utsava is Sanskrit word which comes from the word “ut” meaning “removal” and “sava” which means “worldly sorrows” or “grief”. Festivals are observed in India with acts of worship, offerings to deities, fasting, feasting,  rituals,  charity, celebrations, puja, Homa, aarati etc.

Here I am listing some of festivals down with their significance and pictures.

Holi (Festival of colours or love)

The Festival signifies victory of good over evil, arrival of spring, end of winter and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair ruptured relationships. It is one of the Harvest Festivals celebrated at my hometown. Holi falls in March month usually.

Gauri pujan is celebrated by Maharashtrians for worshipping the goddess Paravati (Mother of Lord Ganesh).  This puja is well-known as ‘Mangala Gauri’. According to us Mangala means holy and auspicious. Mostly Gauri pujan falls in month of August or September.
