"What's in a name? that which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet."
Yet, this seems very interesting as how the names of the districts of Odisha originated !
#districtsofodisha #Odisha
Probably derived from Anugola which is Anu+Gola. A battle or plot (Gola) was devised by the King of Odisha against the last rebellious Kandha chieftain Anu, who refused to acknowledge the King's suzerainty and pay the tributes. (L.S.S.O' Malley)

According to tradition, Balangir
town was established by Balaram Deo, the brother of Narasimha Deo. The
town being founded by Balaram Deo was earlier known as Balaramgarh
from which the name Balangir has been derived.

#NuakhaiJuhar #Nuakhai
#Nuakhai is a combination of two words, 'nua' meaning new and 'khai' means eat,which signifies "eating of new rice". People worship food grain, special meals are prepared and everyone eats it together. The farmers offer the first produce from their lands to Goddess #Samaleswari.
Community functions called "Nuakhai Bhetghat" are organised at various public places. One can immerse in the local culture of Odisha, witness traditional Sambalpuri dance forms like Rasarkeli, Dalkhai, Maelajada, Chutku Chuta, Sajani, Nachnia, and Bajnia

It’s a sleepless night. Incessant rains since 12 hours. The tiny stream is a huge raging river now.

This was the view at 10 pm. 6 hours ago. #OdishaRain #OdishaFloods #Sambalpur Image
This is a tiny stream that flows into the Mahanadi downstream. #Hirakud Dam gates have not been opened yet. It’s already flood situation!

A positive @dominos_india story. Because these should be highlighted too:
We placed an online order yesterday that included two Choco Lava cakes with the pizzas. As usual got a call from the nearby store for order confirmation and was told that the cake isn't available. (1/5)
I questioned why the website let me place the order in the first place if something wasn't available. The manager said he was helpless about that but since we had already paid, he said he would get it delivered next day or whenever we wanted it in the coming days. (2/5)
He added that right now we could add a complimentary side dish to our order since it is not our fault. We got a pasta. But I had my doubts if they would actually deliver the cake the next day since he wasn't willing to give any written validation for it. (3/5)
