Sambalpur: In accordance with their belief that the Goddess will hear their prayers, devotees not only drop money in the donation box at Maa Samaleswari Temple in Sambalpur but also letters to her.
Many such letters have been recovered in the past and read before the Goddess, but reportedly for the first time in the temple's history, a love letter has found its way to the donation box.
In the letter, a girl has prayed near the Goddess that any misunderstanding should never occur between her and her lover. She has also asked the Goddess to clear all hurdles in their marriage.
