Long ago in the olden days, there was an omnipotent king. He lived in a grand palace by the sea with his queen. He was extremely devoted to his siblings, who too lived in the palace with them. One day the siblings got an invitation from their aunt and decided to pay her a visit in a grand procession leaving the queen alone in the magnificent palace and promising her to return the next day.


The queen anxiously awaits their return and days goes by, on the fifth day the queen becomes jealous and suspects what the siblings were up to and couldn't resist her curiousness and goes to the aunt's palace. The king seeing his queen along with her servants shuts all the doors. The queen unwilling to surrender to the gravities orders her servants to break a part of the king's vehicle.


The king returns to the palace with an impressive parade with his elder brother and loving, younger sister, and given a regal welcome by his servants. But the enraged queen orders her servants to not open the palace gates. The king seeing things getting rough apprehends the reason for the Queen's bitterness, deduces a plan to pacify her for not taking her along. A person who really wants to do something finds a way and he was after all the king. He admits his mistakes and offers a distinctive sweet to make matters up. The queen after tasting the exquisite delicate sweet is content and allows him entry into the palace.


The sweet offered to the queen 'Maa Mahalaxmi' is famously known as 'Rasagola' and this day is known as 'Niladri Bije' which marks the return of 'Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra, and Devi Subhadra to the temple after Rath Yatra.
