Gudi Padwa Story 2 :-
The region of South India used to be the rule area of Bali during the Ramayana period. When Lord Shri Ram came to know that Lankapati Ravana had kidnapped Mother Sita, he needed an army to fight against Ravana’s army to bring her back.
After coming to South India, he met Sugriva. Sugriva expressed his inability to make him aware of the misrule of Bali. Then Lord Shri Ram killed Bali and freed the people of South India from him. It is believed that it was the day of Chaitra Shukla Pratipada. That is why Gudi i.e. Vijaypataka is hoisted on the day of ‘Gudi Padwa’.
