Devotees from Ludhiana presented the first mirror with a silver frame to Ram Lalla in Ayodhya on Sunday, February 4. Naresh Singh Lal, a member of Shri Banke Bihari Sewa Pariwar, expressed deep devotion, stating that around 90 people from their organisation travelled to Ayodhya to offer this symbolic gift to Ram Lalla. The gesture reflects the spiritual connection and reverence devotees hold for the deity at the sacred site.
He further elaborated on the speciality of the mirror, stating, “A pure 999 silver frame was used for making the mirror for Ram Lalla. We got this made in Rajasthan.”
Speaking about his intention behind getting the mirror, Naresh said, “We just want Ram Lalla to look at himself in this mirror.”
Another devotee from Ludhiana expressed, “We just want that after ‘shringaar’ (makeup), Ram Lalla looks at himself in this mirror. That is why we are presenting this silver mirror.”
On Thursday, in a significant development, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia, and Minister of State VK Singh jointly inaugurated SpiceJet’s direct flight service connecting Ayodhya with eight cities.
This strategic initiative aims to enhance accessibility for devotees and tourists seeking the divine darshan of Shri Ram Lalla in the new, grand and divine (Navya, Divya and Bhavya) temple of Ayodhya.
Earlier, successful air services had commenced from Ayodhya to Delhi, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Kolkata, and Bengaluru, the CM said.
Notably, Prime Minister Narendra Modi began his customary remarks to the media ahead of the start of parliament’s budget session with ‘Ram Ram’ greetings, and the Pran Pratishtha ceremony at Ayodhya earlier this month figured in the remarks of President Droupdadi Murmu, who addressed the joint sitting of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.
“Ram Ram greetings to you all for the year 2024,” the Prime Minister said at the beginning of his remarks.
