Rath Yatra

After the crash-course in Computers, he felt empowered to be on the verge of an online identity.

As he signed up for a new email account, he felt powerful like a Creator & excited like a newborn!

“What Password should I type?” he quizzed himself hoping to be helped by his rich 80 years on Earth experience!

Many names of people and places and dates came flocking like uncountable sheep reflecting happiness, innocence…

He soon made his choice by typing Rath Yatra as his password - his key to unlock his account and embark on a magical journey in cyberspace!

      So lovely to find like-minded people who are willing to learn! Great that you actually did search for the term and are richer.
      Rath Yatra is a centuries old festival that originated in the Jagannath Temple, Puri, Odisha, India, that is now celebrated and is famous all over the world.
      Do plan a visit to incredible India soon :)

  13. Dear Anita, Good story and I really enjoyed the information about the celebration. We live in Kansas, U.S.A. and I don't know a lo t of India. However, 2 of my sons have spent time there and loved it. They were working with Indian Engineers and were impressed how modern the hotels, offices, and homes were. I did have fun reading about the beautiful scenery you have in your country. Thank you for an interesting story! Nan Claire Falkner :)

  15. Dear Anita,

    Interesting way to connect all the prompts. I'd love to see what you could do with one prompt at a time. ;) Love the last photo of Rath Yatra. Such a large world made smaller by the internet. Thank you.

    1. Welcome to my Blog, Namrata.
      Thanks for your nice words.
      Used Rath Yatra as password to indicate auspicious journey in cyberspace & also to introduce it to an audience who might not be aware of it. From the comments, looks like I succeeded :)
      I feel we must do all we can & must share such info about Odisha & India that can attract more tourists.
