PM Modi's role in realizing the grand Ram Mandir

What sets the Ram Mandir project apart is the unspoken inspiration that flows from an honorable source—Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Misra emphasized, "The most inspiring thing is that in this whole process of decision making, construction and progress there is somewhere an invisible inspiration of honourable PM Narendra Modi." 

While the Prime Minister may not be directly involved in monitoring the day-to-day activities of the project, his presence is felt in every brick laid and every step taken, noted Misra. "He doesn't monitor, but I am very sure he knows about each and every step about what is happening here," he stated.

He further added, "That is something which is for us also a matter of satisfaction that one day he will do the Prana Pratishtha and people in millions believe that in some manner he has been instrumental in this construction of Ram Mandir."

It's not just about bricks and mortar; it's about the spiritual rejuvenation of a nation. The Ram Mandir is not merely a physical structure but a living testament to the faith and determination of millions who believe in the legacy of Lord Ram. The grand temple represents a renaissance of culture, a resurgence of spirituality, and a unifying force for a diverse nation.
