Samba Dashami- a unique festival of Odisha which falls on 10th day of Pausha masa(Month). On this day mothers wake up early morning and wear the new sarees and pray to Lord Surya for the health of their children and family.
Due to Mythology, Samba, Son of Lord Krishna was in trouble by leprosy and was cured by the sun God Lord Surya after 12 years punishment near Konark. From that day people visit sun temple or in front of tulsi plant make the alpana of Lord Surya and pray for the well being of the family.
Happy Samba Dashami to all.
