The Object Of My Affection

Today on Bahuda Jatra, we had a family-function.
The object of my affection was a part of the celebration.

With my object around, the function was a treat!
For me, it made the Satyanarayana Puja complete!

This object makes its presence felt on occasions-
Irrespective of the big and small celebrations!

It comes in different sizes & colour- cool variety!
These days, one can find it all over, in many a city.

Wedding-anniversary, death-ceremony, or birthday,
This favourite object seems perfect any & every day.

It sweetens up my life & everyone's as it's grand!
My love for this object is tough to understand!

Many homes & shops around the world have it.
When it gets over (which is fast), they buy or make it!

This object's history is ancient, but it doesn't last for long.
This object is much in demand & its connection is strong.

This object has a link with Odisha's culture, tradition & history.
It's offered on Niladri Bije, the last day of the Ratha Jatra at Puri.

Other temples & mathas following the same tradition, offer it too.
That this object is a Mahaprasad of Lord Jagannath- many haven't a clue!

A day #RasagolaDibasa is dedicated to the object of my affection!
Using the same hashtag this July 25, do join us in our celebration!

Note- 'The Object Of My Affection' is Rasagola, a dessert that is a gift!
Did you know that it sorts Lord Jagannath & Mahalakshmi's rift?

#RasagolaDibasa is on July 25 this year. 
Celebrated on Niladri Bije, it spreads cheer!
Let us enjoy Rasagolas here!
