Kindly note that out of the given names in the tweet, only “Bardhaman Sitabhog” has got Geographical Indication #GITag.
Langcha, Chandrapuli & Narkel Naru are yet to get GI.

Wrongly mentioned that Bengal has got GI for Sitabhog.
Actually, GI product name is- Bardhaman Sitabhog
#Sitabhog is a part of Mahaprasad of Shree Jagannatha Temple Puri Odisha @JagannathaDhaam @SJTA_Puri

Similarly, Rasagola is offered as bhog on #NiladriBije #RathYatra

Still, reports wrongly mention that Bengal has GI tag for Sitabhog & Rosogolla.

#GiTag
Actually, Bengal has #GITag for-
“Bardhaman Sitabhog”
&
“Banglar Rasogolla” among others.

Using Sitabhog & Rosogolla etc is wrong.

The correct names & spellings must be used while sharing information.

#RathYatra #AdharaPana

Thread 🧵

"Adhara Pana" ritual is performed on the Rathas of the Deities on the 11th day of the Rath Yatra. ‘Adhara’ means ‘Lip’ and ‘Pana’ is a sweet scented drink made of milk, sugar, cheese, banana, camphor, nutmeg, black pepper etc.

++
The Adhara Pana is offered to the deities to break their Ekadasi fast. The deities are offered Adhara Pana in huge cylindrical earthen pots reaching up to their lips and the quantity is nearly 100 litres. 9 cylindrical pots are used in this ritual (3 for each deity).

++
Raghava Das Matha offers the Adhara Pana to the Deities during this occasion. Immediately after the ritual offering, the pot is broken on the Ratha itself, and the pana, the mahaprasad, flows out.

అంతర్వేది శ్రీ లక్ష్మీ నరసింహ స్వామి వారి ఆలయ ప్రాంగణంలో 62 ఏళ్ల చరిత్ర కలిగిన స్వామి వారి రథం శనివారం అర్ధరాత్రి అగ్నికి ఆహుతైంది.

62yrs old Chariot of Shri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy, Antharvedi was on fire last night & fully burned down.
This is 3rd such incident in #AP in
last 1yr. Locals r saying this is done in exactly same pattern as other 2 incidents. Right in the middle of the night Chariot is burned down. No SECURITY near temples.
‘Trying’ to show as short circuit as usual. Money from temples is used to give monthly salaries for Mullahs,
pastors & to send xistians to jerusalem trips but can’t provide proper security to #Hindu temples.

Can hear locals saying fire engines did not respond and come in time even after informing several times, until all is burnt down @noconversion

Dear @sambit_dash , there are several things you got wrong in your article:
Firstly, you got Chronology wrong. Chief Servitor of Lord Jagannath started preparing for the #RathYatra as early as April. Even before d Ratha construction was to be started on Akshaya Trutiya.. 1/n
a detailed proposal was submitted on how the #RathYatra can be held without compromising on public health. The proposal was submitted to every1 - Gajapati, Shankaracharya, @CMO_Odisha, @HMOIndia & @PMOIndia and welcomed by the @sjta_puri 2/n
When the Rath construction was started upon receiving GREEN signal from @HMOIndia, all the carpenters were tested & Rath construction happened in compliance with all health norms. The two usually crowded rituals viz., Rukmini Vivaha & Deba Snana was conducted w/o Devotees 3/n

"Do they kill themselves beneath the wheels of the Juggernaut? Do the people of India throw their children into the jaws of the crocodiles?". These were some of the routine questions that were put to Swami Vivekananda in his lectures in the US during 1893-95 for many months.
Such was the picture about India and Hindus that the Christian Missionaries had created among the American public. If you didn't know it already, Juggernaut here refers to the chariot of Lord Jagannath.
In the current English, Juggernaut is a commonly used metaphor to denote a merciless, destructive, and unstoppable killing machine - an allusion to the '"ritual suicide of the foolish and superstitious heathens in front of their Satanic deity's chariot".

I convey my heartiest greetings and good wishes to the people of our country on the auspicious occasion of Rath Yatra.

Jagannath Puri Rath Yatra is the most revered and much awaited festival of Odisha. #RathYatra Image
Rath Yatra depicts the annual journey of Lord Jagannath, who is considered to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

The splendour and grandeur of the festival of Rath Yatra and the magnificence of the 'Rathas' or the chariots, is truly unparalleled. #RathYatra
As India and the world continue to fight a relentless battle against the spread of COVID-19, we have resorted to celebrating almost all of our traditional festivals at home.
Under these circumstances, we have to be content with a modest celebration this year. #RathYatra

जय जगन्नाथ! Image
परिस्थितियों को देखते हुए वर्षों से चली आ रही जगन्नाथ रथ यात्रा की परंपरा के निर्वहन को लेकर असमंजस बना हुआ था लेकिन श्रद्धालुओं की आस्था रंग लाई।

जगन्नाथ पुरी के राजा और शंकराचार्य जी के साथ ही सॉलिसिटर जनरल से परामर्श के बाद सुप्रीम कोर्ट के समक्ष यह विषय रखा गया।
जगन्नाथ रथ यात्रा की पवित्र परंपरा को बनाये रखने के लिए किये गए प्रयासों के लिए माननीय गृहमंत्री श्री @AmitShah जी और माननीय प्रधानमंत्री श्री @narendramodi जी का बहुत-बहुत धन्यवाद!

#RathYatraBan: During the hearing on June 18, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told SC that blanket ban might not be desirable and court should allow the ceremony and rituals sans public

But CJI Bobde turned it down stating if any sort of ritual is allowed, public will congregate.
Four days later court is hearing at least a dozen applications seeking the exact same thing.

Interestingly, state of Odisha which had declined to take a concrete stance on 18th and had asked SC to pass a clear order then is also now agreeing with centre's stance.

#THREAD : I am in favour of Rath Yatra!

Since time immemorial we have been following the customs and traditions and slowly they have become part and parcel of our life. These determine the essence around which our values revolve. But someday all of a sudden when these 1/9 Image
customs are questioned by the supreme highest law bidding authority then where shall we express our views?

Whom shall we contact? The supreme court of India has put a restriction on conducting Lord Jagannath procession in Odisha with the rationality that the people can't 2/9
stop themselves from visiting Rath Yatra and gathering of any kind will explode the pandemic further. But what I enquire is, why our law governing body cannot ban religious ceremony of any other religion? I am a sensible citizen who respects the law and order of our country 3/9

SC has stalled the holiest, oldest annual festival of #RathYatra of #jagannathpuri & all religious activities related to it at the last moment.

The PIL was filed by an NGO Odisha Vikas Parishad.

Why Indian NGOs, Secular Courts interfere Hindu festivals?
#RathaYatraShouldNotStop
Why does Secular State Gov, Secular courts & NGOs keep interfering in our Hindu festivals & years old traditions?

Everyone knew about #Covid19 than why SC gave decision at last moment?

Months of efforts of 100s of Artisans become useless.
@CMO_Odisha

#RathaYatraShouldNotStop
How fair it is to put a stay at last moment on #RathYatra2020 instead of finding alternative option to carry out years old ritual of Baghwan #Jagannath w/o devotee participation?

#Puri #RathYatra
Supreme Court stops this year's Rath Yatra due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

@Cold_Peace_ Since u mentioned Hindu "awakening" lets put this in the right perspective & examine what put Hindus to sleep in the 1st place
1)500 yrs of hostile Mughal & British rule during which millions of Hindus were massacred enslaved & converted & their places of worship vandalised.....
@Cold_Peace_ 2)Despite this they could not completely make India an I$lamic or Xtian state as they did with other countries which they had invaded & forcibly occupied
3)This is because the Hindu never sleeps-the Sanatana Dharma which is the oldest in the world has unshakeable foundations.....
@Cold_Peace_ ...whose resilience will never be figured out by Abrahamic faiths because Hindus or Sanatanis worship Life Nature & Humanity each epitomised by the various Gods in our pantheon
4)However even after freedom this did not end...& an even more deadly toxic sedative was introduced....

Dushasana rushes at Abhimanyu assuring Duryodhana that he will kill the son of Su hadra which would distress Krishna and Arjuna so much that they woukd due of grief and that in turn would make the enemy retreat forever. By then Abhimanyu had been mangled by arrows. #Kurukshetra
Yet, the sight of Duhshasana reminded him of the wrongs his father, uncle and step mother had faced. He decided to kill Duhshasana for Bhima and fought. His shower of arrows made Duhshasana swoon and the charioteer drove away to safety. #Kurukshetra
Exhilarated at Abhimanyu's victory, the Pandava host began to cheer aloud and fight with renewed vigour. This agitated Duryodhana and he sent Karna again. Karna began a fresh attack. But Abhimanyu broke his bow and flag. Karna's brother intervened. #Kurukshetra

#Thread #Kurukshetra #Analytics #Mahabharata
Started a fun project of mine today. Recording the duels of Kurukshetra war in an excel sheet in anticipation of some interesting pattern. Watch this space for interesting tidbits. Full exercise may take quite a while
Interesting Results! #Kurukshatra #Analytics. So many duels without a declared result on Day One
Could record two general battles and 26 duels on Day One. Only 6 of those duels ended decisively. Pandava side suffered horribly in the hands of Bhishma. Uttara killed in the hands of Shalya. Saving grace being Abhimanyu countering Bhishma and winning over Brihadbala #Kurukshetra
