Rasagola Day

Odisha is an Eastern state of India.
Despite it being 'the Soul of Incredible India', Odisha is yet to get credit for so many things- like the Rasagola.

Rasgulla/Rasagolla/Rasagola...spell it in anyway, prepare it in any shape or size or have it in any part of the world, the fact is that Odisha is the birthplace of the Rasagola.

There are many variations and innovations are found in different parts of India. However, the most amazing, yummy, finest, soft and delicious Rasagolas are found in Odisha. One has to come to Odisha and get the taste of mouthwatering varieties of Rasagolas.

In my post Kaleidoscopic Indian CultureI had compared Indian culture with Rasagola and had mentioned the great varieties of Rasagolas as follows:

Sweet Yatra

He went to His aunt's place with His siblings, like He did each year at that time of the year.

His wife was angry that He did not take Her with Him.

She followed His path and damaged his chariot and returned to their home..

After enjoying his Yatra (journey/travel/trip) with His siblings, He returned home.

His wife let His elder brother and sister enter the gate, but did not let Him enter.

She was raspy and said- NO!

The situation was somber.

He tried reasoning with Her and promised to Her that He would not leave Her behind the next time.
(Obedient husband indeed!)

Next, to placate Her, He offered Her some delicious sweets named Rasagolas.
Rasagola-Birthplace is Odisha, India
Rasagola- A sweet/dessert that originated in Odisha, India

Some Great Dads In Hindi Movies

Great dads love their child and want the very best for their child. 
Hugs are free, comforting and a Jaadu ki Jhappi (magical hug) can instantly have an emotional connect and make both the giver and receiver happy! 

There are many Great Dads in real life and reel life.
Here are some cool dads from Hindi cinema who deserve a hug as they:

Are Loving & Doting
In the movie- Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, a single sneeze enacted by the smart daughter is enough to get her father rushing to the summer-camp! Earlier her dad even helps his daughter on stage by speaking on the topic-'Mother' in a competition.

Dalma Hotel, Bhubaneswar

The food belonging to the state of Odisha i.e. Odia cuisine is very nutritious and delicious.
Though we have it everyday at home, this weekend we tried out a popular restaurant named Dalma.
This hotel is named after a famous dish of Odisha- Dalma dish is prepared using Dal (Pulses- Arhar or Moong) along with vegetables and coconut.

Dalma restaurant has three branches in Bhubaneswar and also has branches in other cities like Delhi, Kolkata & Bengaluru. We visited the Unit-4, Madhusudan Nagar branch in Bhubaneswar.

Here is my post about Dalma Restaurant for www.askme.com

Like A Dream

She had built a home for them by the sea-beach, just as he had promised her when he had proposed marriage.

As the youngest CEO of an MNC, he was too busy traveling on official visits to even think of any family-related matters.

She shifted to their dream-home.

Months passed.
