Behind her she heard laughter/screaming in metallic voices when she felt she had figured out the petroglyphs story.

My Philosophy Of Handle With Care

Selected as a WOW Post here
There are many things that to me & you are dear.
They fill us with cheer; to spoil, break, lose them we fear

At all times they need to be handled with care!
Should anything untoward happen, there's no spare!

Apart from wealth & material possessions like gadgets, jewelry,
A lot others need our time & we need to treat them carefully.

What's Cooking?

She had heard so much about that enticing recipe from her family, who had tasted the sweet-dish in its birthplace, that she wanted to experience it herself.

Her life was no longer boring as she derived succor in her experiments, though she met with little success, trying to create the dish that no one knew how to prepare...

As her desire was scorching her day and night, despite severe opposition from her family, she went in quest of that secret recipe like a girl possessed.

Here is a Quiz/GK question for you:

If you answered- Odisha or Orissa, then full marks to you.

Many do not know the birthplace of the Rasagola. The popular perception is different.

On learning this, some get emotionally charged up, some others feel it is funny, while many disbelieve.

Actually, Rasagolas have been associated for centuries with the Shree Jagannath Temple, Puri in Odisha.

Lord Jagannath Himself offers Rasagolas to please His consort, Maa Laxmi.
On the last day of the Rath Yatra, called Niladri Bije, the Lord offers Rasagolas to Maa Laxmi to gain entrance into the Temple.

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 that are found in different parts of India. However, the most amazing, yummiest, finest, softest 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

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
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 Jatra (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 answered Her queries.
(Obedient husband indeed!)

Next, to placate Her, He offered Her some delicious sweets named Rasagolas.
Rasagola-Birthplace is Odisha, India
