Pakhala Dibasa - A Poem #PakhalaDibasa

Today is #PakhalaDibasa and also the #InternationalDayOfHappiness! 🍚

Here are some lines - few words dedicated to Pakhala, Pakhala Day & happiness :)

For many, Pakhala is not just an "Odia Food"-
It's an emotion that's too special & good!
Even Mahaprabhu Shree Jagannatha loves this-
Served 365 days of the year- many varieties!
Odias eat Pakhala in all seasons; mostly to beat the heat-
In summer season especially, Pakhala is a refreshing treat.
March 20 is "Spring Equinox"- equal day & night length-
When days get longer & heat is on, Pakhala is strength!

It links us with our culture & our childhood.
For me, my Pakhala is better than any "fast food"!
Simple, comforting & with health benefits too-
Pakhala party unites all being so humble & true.

Pakhala is common- above status & livelihood!
Pakhala is happiness - This I have understood!
Missing my mom & grandmothers who served with care-
Ah! That Pakhala platter! Awesome taste beyond compare...

Connecting with my family, relatives & friends today-
The associated Pakhala memories will forever stay!
If you are a Pakhala lover like me too, let's celebrate!
Be extra happy as today is "Pakhala Day" & happiness date!
