Rasagola Dibasa is celebrated across the Odisha

Bhubaneswar:6/7/17: Rasagola Dibasa is celebrated today across the state to highlight the story and glory of the delicious desert and its historical connection with the holy Hindu festival of Ratha Yatra (Chariot festival).

People of the state took to twitter for wishing the day named after the Odisha’s very own delicacy, Rasagola.

The sweet is still a matter of debate between Odisha and West Bengal as either claimed that the Rasagola was originated from their land. However, getting a sneak peek into the myth related to the divine deities at Puri and Ratha Yatra, the rituals portray the people’s longing towards the sweet since decades.

Rasagola is offered to Goddess Laxmi as bhog on this day during Niladri Bije rituals, which is believed that Lord Jagannath brings the sweet along with him after completing his nine-day Ratha Yatra to appease his better half (Goddess Laxmi).

The return of Lord Jagannath is marked with Rasagola Dibasa, a day celebrated to let people know the history and origin of Rasagola.
