After Supreme Court's historic judgment on paving the way for a Ram temple in Ayodhya, Organizers of Dharmyatra Mahasangh are making efforts to strengthen the ties between Nepal and India
A Vishwa Hindu Parishad body, Dharmyatra Mahasangh has made a clarion call for an alliance between eligible bachelors in Uttar Pradesh and women in Nepal’s Janakpur. For the event, as many as 108 men from Meerut, Saharanpur, Ayodhya, and Lucknow in UP, Indore, and Bhopal in MP and cities from Bihar are participating. The event is being advertised as Shri Ram Janaki Vivah Baraat Yatra-Ayodhya which will end at the Shri Dham Janakpur. The 13-day event will include marriage ceremonies and other rituals, including tilokatsav and kanya puja. The event will commence from November 21 from Janki Ghat in Karsevakpuram in Ayodhya.
The procession will take place on December 4 in Gorakhpur, the bastion of chief minister Yogi Adityanath upon return from Nepal. There will be eight welcome points, named Ambedkarnagar, Mau and Azamgarh in UP and Buxar, Pataliputra, Hajipur, Muzaffarpur, Sitamarhi, Darbhanga and Motihari in Bihar, where extravagant meals by devotees and enthusiasts will be served at the wedding.
The wedding will take place at Dashrath Mandir in Janakpur. “The person who watches this marriage immerses in the worship of God,” the event’s invitation says. The invite also says the event will strengthen ties between Nepal and India, which are culturally one country yet separated by borders.
Rajendra Singh Pankaj, the organizer, said“We should not see the event as a milestone after Ram Temple verdict or reinforcement of VHP’s efforts to build the temple. This happens every five years. We will also organize a Dhanush Yagya. From saints to UP CM and PM Narendra Modi and Nepal’s kingdom, we have invited everyone."
