On the special Occasion of Ugadi, a special dish will be made which is called Ugadi Pachadi in Telugu and Bevu Bella in Kannada which is a mixture of 6 tastes.  This dish symbolizes the fact that life is a mixture of different experiences (sadness, happiness, anger, fear, disgust, surprise), which should be accepted together and with equanimity through the New Year.
