Kolkata:

Australian High Commissioner to India Barry O’Farrell on Tuesday extended Vijaya Dashami greetings to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and thanked her for sending him sweetmeats on the occasion.

In a Twitter post, he shared photos of the “sandesh” and “mishti doi” sent by the chief minister.

West Bengal is famous for both “sandesh“, a type of sweetmeat, and “mishti doi” (sweet yoghurt). Offering sweetmeats to people on the Vijaya Dasami is a custom of the state.

“Vijaya greetings Hon’ble Chief Minister @MamataOfficial”, O”Farrell said in Bengali in the tweet.

Then he said in English: “Thank you for the traditional #Bengali sweets Mishti Doi and Sandesh. Looking forward to my next visit to your state.”

Ms Banerjee is known for sending sweetmeats, other delicacies of Bengal and traditional dresses to dignitaries and friends on occasions such as Vijaya Dashami, the last day of the Durga puja festival, which fell on October 15 this year.
