Praise the Vada Pav

Praise  the  Vada Pav

For a change  I found a stotra  in Sanskrit  extolling  the virtues  of Vada Pav .Enjoy it

वडापाव स्तोत्रम
Prayer to Vada Pav

(Vada pav (Marathi : वडा पाव), sometimes spelled wada pav or vada paav or vada pao, is a vegetarian fast food dish native to the Indian  state of Maharashtra . It is believed to have been   devised by  Ashok Vaidya   and sold in a food stall near  Dadar  Station. A simple creation involving a deep fried potato patty with some coriander and spices , it is only   a dish which is a  sandwich  .  It is now offered in stalls and restaurants throughout India.)

Translated by

गोलाकारं तबकशयनम्
स्वर्णवर्णं खमंगम्
पावयुक्तं चटणिसहितम्
सर्वभिः खादितव्यम् ।।
क्षुधाशांतं उदरभरणम्
वंदे तुभ्यं वडापावम्
सर्वखाद्याधिराजम् ।।

इति वडापाव स्तोत्रम संपूर्णम !!

A  hot   globe   with golden colour  ,
lying  on it , is its  own part ,
Along with  Pav as well  as chutney  ,
It is tasty for every one .
It fulfills hunger   and is an ornament  to the stomach,
And creates    a desire to again and again eat it .
My salutations to you   Vada  Pav  ,
Who is the king of all eatables

Thus ends the prayer   to Vada  Pav
