Ayodhya, August 3
For the previous three-and-a-half a long time, brothers Shankarlal and Bhagwatlal ‘Pahaadhi’ have been stitching garments for Ram Lalla in Ayodhya. Their dedication shall be manifest within the splendid gown they’ve meticulously crafted for the deity to put on on August 5, throughout the bhoomi pujan ceremony of the Ram temple. The particular gown for the ceremony has 9 gems stitched in golden thread.
Operating from their store named after their late father Babulal and situated within the metropolis’s Badhi Kutiyaa space, the brothers sew garments for less than deities and seers.
“My father late Babulal started stitching the clothes of Ram Lalla in 1985. He used to carry our sewing machine to the Ramjanmabhoomi and stitch the clothes with me and my elder brother in tow,” Shankarlal (54) stated on Monday.
Shankarlal stated for the bhoomi pujan two units of clothes have been made — one is inexperienced, whereas the opposite is orange. “The clothes are made using soft material such as ‘makhmal’ (velvet). The green dress has been made keeping in mind the day-specific colour, while orange is considered auspicious,” he stated.
On Sunday, the clothes have been handed over by the tailors, stated Acharya Satyendra Das, the chief priest of the Ram temple. — PTI
