Logic in Ugadi Pickle
The seven ingrediants added in the pickle/pachadi have seven different tastes. Jaggary is sweet and chilli Powder is hot. Salt is salty while tamarind is sour and Mano and coconut have their own taste. The Ugadi picle thus signifies the fact that life is also full of ups and downs, happiness and pain etc. By drinking this Ugadi Picle we sense that all the things that happen in our life whether good or bad, are part and parcel of our life. We just have the face them instead of hoping to avoid them.
