Pakhala Divas or Pakhala Dibasa 2023 Date Poster Wallpaper Greetings. Pakhala Divas or Pakhala Dibasa 2023 is celebrated on 20 March every year as decided on a facebook group “Odisha Mo Odisha”.
How Pakhala Divas or Pakhala Dibasa started?
Welcoming Summer in mid-March, people of Odisha replace their lunch plate with a bowl of Pakhala/Water rice. Pakhala is the favorite of every Odia and it’s also the symbol of recognition of every Odia, in Odisha or abroad. A person can never erase his/her love for his motherland likewise an Odia can never forget Pakhala, irrespective of social classes.
In the year 2011, there was a discussion about Pakhala on a Facebook group by Odia people named ‘Odisha mo Odisha’. The group decided to celebrate Universal Pakhala Day to welcome Summer and that marked the beginning of Pakhala Dibasa.
