“Odisha India’s First State to Celebrate Menstruation Festival where women are pampered & made to feel special. Time and again, we have come across various infuriating practices and beliefs from all around the country regarding the menstrual taboo. However, there are certain cultural practices in India which believe in the opposite, case in point being this 4-day Odisha festival called Raja Parba which is celebrated in June every year. Pronounced as raw-jaw, Raja comes from the word Rajaswala, which means menstruating women. It is believed that during the first three days Bhudevi (Mother Earth), the wife of Lord Jagannath undergoes menstruation and is given a ceremonial bath the fourth day. Each day of the festival has its own name and significance - the first day is called Pahili Rajo, second day is Mithuna Sankranti, signifying the beginning of solar month of Mithuna i.e., the rainy season, the third day is Bhu Daaha orBasi Raja and the fourth day is called Vasumati Snana.”
