Rath-er Mela - A Bengali poem to mark Rath Yatra 2010

Tuesday 13th July 2010  marks Rath Yatra - and people in Kolkata, India and across the world participate in the event of Jagannath's Rath Jatra. I would like to remind all of the celebration with a little poem in transliterated Bengali, "Rath Er Mela".

RATH ER MELA
