The whole world is engrossed in the three elements of Satva, Raja, and Tama. This is the reason, people don't recognize the Eternal God who is beyond them.

The festival of Ugadi heralds the start of a New Year in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Karnataka. In both states the festival is locally referred to as Telugu Panchang and Kannada Panchang, respectively.
Ugadi comes from two words, 'Yuga' meaning 'era', and 'aadi' means 'the beginning’. Ugadi is believed to be the day when Brahma - the Creator, in the Hindu Trinity - formed the universe. It’s also the time when winter is on its way out, and spring’s round the corner, so the concept of new life and a new year is really very appropriate for Ugadi festival.
Gudi Padwa in Maharashtra:
Gudi Padwa or Samvatsar Padvo is celebrated as the first day of the year by Maharashtrians and Konkanis. In Maharashtra, the new year is celebrated as Gudi Padwa-a festival that heralds the advent of spring. Early on the morning of the first day of the Chaitra month people finish their ablutions, wear new clothes and decorate their houses with colorful “rangoli” patterns. A silk banner is raised and worshipped and greetings and sweets are exchanged. People hang decorated pole with a brass or a silver vessel placed on it.
