Sarojini Bishi

Bhubaneswar: Today is the world famous Rath ride. On this occasion, President of India Draupadi Murmu, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Odisha Governor Raghubar Das and Chief Minister Mohan Charan Majhi extended their greetings.

President Draupadi Murmu wrote on his ‘X’ account, “I extend my heartiest greetings to all the countrymen on the occasion of the world-famous Rath yatra of Lord Shri jagannath.” Today, innumerable Jagannathan lovers of the country and the world are anxiously waiting for the darshan of the three Thakurs on the chariot. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also greeted the people of the country on the occasion of the holy Rath yatra and sought the blessings of the Lord.

Similarly, Chief Minister Mohan Majhi congratulated everyone on the occasion of the Holy Rath Yatra. He wrote in ‘X’, ‘Lots of wishes and good luck to all as the Holy Rath Yatra is available. May our state reach the top of development in every field by benefiting the immense mercy of the Lord and build a new prosperous Odisha with the cooperation of all.

From now on, the big day has been forgotten. Devotees are going to see a rare ride this year after 53 years. Every year the procession takes place, but this time it is a rare procession. Because this time the journey will be for two days. Thirteen days instead of fifteen days of fasting this year. As a result, Srijiu’s youthful vision and journey falls in one day. It takes time to complete the process. By the time all the policies are over today, it is getting late. Today in the temple, Thakur’s youth policy will also be performed. That’s why Srijiu’s feet will be split today. Similarly, Rath ride will be at five o’clock in the afternoon today. Today the chariot cannot reach the Gundicha temple because of the delay. So the train will go tomorrow morning as well.
