Former Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan’s recent visit to the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya stirred deep emotions as she recounted her experience at a programme organised by Seva Surabhi in Indore. Her tearful narration revealed the profound impact of witnessing the culmination of a long-awaited dream – the construction of the Ram Mandir.
Sumitra Mahajan’s eyes welled with tears as she reminisced about her darshan of Sri Ram, expressing her inability to contain her emotions even while sharing the experience. “I can never forget the experience I had there. I had tears in my eyes after seeing Sri Ram, and today, while narrating that experience, my eyes have become moist again,” she recounted, her voice trembling with emotion.
Reflecting on the collective sentiment of humility and devotion she witnessed among the visitors, Sumitra Mahajan remarked, “Every big person there was also small. Everyone went to Ayodhya Ram Mandir as common citizens.” She highlighted the unity and selflessness displayed during the event, emphasising that despite the magnitude of the occasion, no one faced any problems.
The programme attendees, including Gurmeet Narang and Krishna Kumar Asthana, echoed Mahajan’s sentiments, expressing profound reverence for the momentous occasion. Narang shared his sense of honour upon being invited to the Ram Mandir, while Asthana emphasised the responsibility of ushering in the ideals of Ram Rajya – a just and righteous society.
Former Governor Kokje offered a poignant perspective, suggesting that the demolition of the Ram Mandir aimed to instil fear in the hearts of Indians, emphasising the significance of the temple as a symbol of national identity. His words resonated deeply, evoking memories of sacrifice and perseverance among those who dedicated their lives to the cause.
The program served as a poignant reminder of the arduous journey spanning decades, from legal battles to emotional upheavals, culminating in the realisation of a shared dream. The presence of individuals like the 92-year-old lawyer, who tirelessly fought for justice, symbolised the unwavering resolve of the devotees.
As the nation grapples with the implications of this historic moment, there is a palpable sense of responsibility to uphold the principles embodied by Sri Ram – righteousness, compassion, and justice. The call to “become the best citizens of Ram Rajya” echoes a collective commitment to building a society founded on these timeless values.
Sumitra Mahajan’s emotional recounting and the reflections of other attendees underscored the profound impact of the Ram Mandir’s construction, not only as a religious landmark but also as a testament to the resilience and unity of the Indian people. As the nation embraces this new chapter, the ideals of Ram Rajya serve as a guiding light towards a future imbued with harmony and prosperity.
