The brand Dahi Vada of Cuttack – Less Dahi More Vada. This is not only a “Dish” of Cuttack, Odisha. If one critically analyze and see through a financial microscope, Its actually a financial lifeline of many small scale businessmen in cuttack.
Its available from 6 am to 12 am at night. One can vouch for it. Every corner of Cuttack is pregnant with the morning smell of it
People of all the class love it, live up to it. An Awaraa like me skip morning breakfast at home and try to be the first customer of my favorite Dahi Vada seller.
Its actually not a dish, its a tradition or u can say that its a lifeline of cuttack. Many families run their show and their everything depends on this.
This is called “Dahi Vada”, I call it, “Less Dahi, More Vada”… Vada + Dahi +Dum Aloo + Sev on Top
Why I wrote it? I generally speak to these Dahi Vada sellers and understand their roots. One day while chatting with a Dahi Vada seller, he said,
“Bhai! why should I go to a different state as a daily labour and earn 500 a day after selling my soul? In stead, I started this business and I am earning ₹ 60,000/- per month in 6 hours a day working hour. I am free in evening and try to teach my child whatever I know.”…We spoke a lot and I realized he knows more “Entrepreneurship” and “Management” than any B-School guy!!
Just that he cant speak English.. nehin to faad ke rakh dega banda…
People should learn from him. He is true #Atmanirbhar
