State-Level Childrens Day Celebration by Naveen Patnaik

Children are important for the nation and to be a good person, they should have the great childhood. That's why the children's day celebrated on 14th November in India. It was the date of birth of the 1st Prime Minister of Independent India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. He loved children the most, that's why he suggested celebrating his birthday as children's day. 

For the first time, the government of Odisha organized a state-level children's day celebration. A state-level celebration organized at Bhubaneswar with a huge number of students and also the program was live through social media, Television channels and aired also. At that program, two teenager singers of Odisha, Ananya Sritam Nanda and Satyajit Jena had performed. The Prince Dance Academy also performed with Odisha Dance Academy. The Chief Minister Sri Naveen Patnaik also came to the event and give around 12 minutes of speech in Odia. Then the students do the promise to read well and be the best.



This is a great initiative for the children. Also, the program was shown to the school children through the TV or Projector. This program also celebrated at Panchayat level, Block level as well as in district level. Some students joined where they wished to join with their friends. But the problem is, some made this as a political campaign and some also commented on the live video as that program was some campaigning for their political party.

In some places, students also left before finishing the program. Yes, that happened due to the lack of preparation and some other activities, which the students didn't like. This is not to criticize anyone, but to appeal to all for co-operation and please know what to do where.

Rasagola Vs Rosogolla

Rasagola Vs Rosogolla

It started from 2015 when Odias celebrate #RasagolaDibasa on Niladribije of Lord Jagannatha. After that, some Bengali claimed that Rasagola originated form their state and then Odisha also reply to them. After that, the Rasagola war started in between Odisha and Bengal. 

Then Odisha Government made some committees to get the proof of Rasagola and some found it was written in Dandi Ramayana. Dandi Ramayana was written by Balaram Das around 800 years ago. And the government declared that they had applied with all the proofs for the Rasagola GI tag. 


Yesterday, Mamata Banarjee the Bengal CM tweeted about the GI tag for Rasagola. She tweeted that the sweet news for her state. They got the GI status for Rosogolla. 




After that, some media reported the news that Bengal won the GI status over Odisha. They even didn't try to find the original news.

But some reported that they had claimed for the Banglar Raosogolla (Bengal Rosogolla). OpIndia also gets the report from Mr Chinnaraja G Naidu, Assistant Registrar of Trade Marks & GI, that the GI status had given to the Banglar Rosogolla, not to the "Rasagola" or "Rasgulla". 


After that Odia twipples got fire on Mamata Banarjee and on our Government too. Some also made funny pictures on Odisha government and Mamata.

After that Odisha CM's twitter handle had tweeted a photo about to apply for the GI status for Odishara Rasagola.


And finally, the truth came for the Odia people that, Odisha had not applied for the GI tag.


On 15th November, finally, the officer woke up and arrange a meeting for the GI tag. 



And then decided to apply for the GI status by searching for proper proof again and God knows when they would apply for it.
