Hold on to your hats, folks, because Sonali Kulkarni is making headlines again! But this time, it’s not for her remarks about Indian girls. No, no, no! This time, she’s giving us a glimpse into her traditional side as she celebrates Gudi Padwa in style.
Sonali Kulkarni, who celebrates Gudi Padwa with great zeal and enthusiasm, shared a family picture to mark the occasion. However, her caption, which read ‘#majormissing’, revealed that she couldn’t be with her family on this special day. Despite being away, Sonali’s love for tradition and family shines through, as she still finds ways to connect with her loved ones and keep the spirit of the festival alive.
Despite her modern lifestyle, Sonali loves to keep her roots intact, and she’s not afraid to show it. In an interview, Sonali had shared about her belief in age-old customs and traditions and how she passes them down to her daughter by setting an example.
But let’s talk about Gudi Padwa, shall we? It’s the first day of the Hindu calendar, and Sonali doesn’t take it lightly. She raises a Gudi with her family, just like all Maharashtrian families do. And what’s a Gudi, you ask? It’s a unique combination of new zari cloth, a copper pot, kadu neem, shakkar ki mala, and a garland.
But that’s not all! Sonali also prays to the Gudi and the new sun, promising to be truthful and happy throughout the year. And if she’s got the day off, she’ll make shrikhand or amrakhand at home and have lunch with her loved ones.
And her childhood memories of Gudi Padwa? They’re just as sweet and quirky as you’d expect. She used to make a bitter sweet dish from kadu neem ke patte and khadi shakkar, which her mom promised would keep her healthy for the rest of the year. And let’s not forget the sugar coin in the shakkar ki mala that she looked forward to all year round.
So, let’s take a moment to appreciate Sonali Kulkarni and her love for tradition. She may have ruffled some feathers with her previous comments, but she’s making up for it with her enthusiasm for Gudi Padwa. Here’s to keeping our roots alive and celebrating our heritage with fervour!
