Bhubaneswar: Today is the second day of the three-day Raja festival and Raja Sankranti. The people of the state are happily rearing horses all around. Even on the second day of Pahili Raja, they eat pod pie and raja paan, starting with young children, virgin girls wear new clothes, dance with their friends, dance with their friends and dance with their friends.

So the literal meaning of the word Raja is to be silver. On this day, Mother Earth sheds blood at the arrival of rain and is symbolic of the birth of new crops. On this day, farmers worship basumati and garlic and take a break from farming for three days.

Today is Gemini transit. Gemini month starts from today. On the occasion of Sankranti, the people of the state started the second day of the month by seeing the Peetha of Deke Devi. The whole countryside is shaking with the rhythm of the rock and the song. Cakes and sweets come from home to home. From the village to the city, there is celebration everywhere.
