Raja Parba

Raja or Raja Parba (Odia: ରଜ or ରଜ ପର୍ବ) is a three-day-long festival celebrated in Odisha. It is believed that the mother Earth undergoes menstruation during the first three days. The fourth day is called Vasumati Snana, or ceremonial bath of Bhudebi. The term Raja came from Rajaswala which means a menstruating woman.

In these three days, people of Odisha celebrated this by eating different types of food like Pitha, Mitha, Pana, Ambha, Panasa, etc. After this festival, the cultivation also started. Basically, people enjoy these three days in different forms. Here we have some Raja Special Things, which would define the Raja Parba in a better way.

This was just a short description of Raja Parba. Other blogs about Raja would come one by one. We are trying to share from different parts in different ways. So, the main goal of our work "Love to Eat & Love to Share" could be defined here also.
